How do YOU Use Hydrogen Peroxide? Cleaning with Peroxide
Along with vinegar, baking soda, salt, lemon juice and other natural house cleaning ingredients, hydrogen peroxide is incredibly useful! I love using it to get rid of stains on grout, for instance, or to brighten up the surfaces of white kitchen appliances.
How do YOU use hydrogen peroxide? Please post a comment! And, it doesn't have to be a cleaning use...it could also be a health and beauty tip.
For now, here are a few handy tips I'd like to share with you for using 3% hydrogen peroxide, the regular kind found at the supermarket in the pharmacy section...
- Hydrogen peroxide is a far less toxic way to get your clothes bleached and clean! It is a greener option, plus it's frugal! About 1/2 cup or so as a bleach alternative should work well.
- Dip toothbrushes into a small glass of hydrogen peroxide to disinfect them naturally. After, rinse with very hot water, and then allow to dry.
- Disinfect with peroxide - half fill a clean spray bottle with 3% hydrogen peroxide and then top up with plain tap water. Swish around a bit to mix and use as a fabulous natural disinfectant cleaner that is a lot less toxic than bleach.
- Remove stains from tiles with hydrogen peroxide. Soak a cleaning cloth with the peroxide and then scrub, or else use a sponge soaked in the peroxide. It really does bleach out stains very well, so be sure to do a spot check to make sure it doesn't lift any color from the flooring!
