  • When you are sick pull out a bottle of it.  It makes a great throat gargle for sore throats.


  • It can be mixed into a paste with baking soda.  The result is a great toothpaste.


  • Combining it with water also makes a great wash for fruits and vegetables.  Add 1/3 cup hydrogen peroxide to sink full of water to wash your fruits and vegetables.


  • It can be used to soak your toothbrushes.


  • Spray your dishwasher, microwave or refrigerator with it to get rid of germs.


  • It is a great toilet cleaner.  All you have to do is pour some in your toilet, let it sit for 30 minutes and then scrub it.


  • To keep your sponges clean  pour equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water in a bowl with your sponges.  Let them soak for ten minutes and then rinse them thoroughly.


  • Fight bad breath by rinsing your mouth with it.


  • To fight acne, apply it to pimples daily until they disappear.


  • When you spray it onto light brown hair it can be used to bring out subtle highlights.

  • Fight foot fungus by soaking your feed in a bath of one part hydrogen peroxide and one part water.  Soak your feet nightly until the fungus clears up.


  • Rinse your mouth with it to clear up canker sores.


  • It can also whiten your teeth.  Try to swish it in your mouth for 5 to 10 minutes daily.  In time you will have whiter teeth without the use of expensive teeth whiteners.


  • If you cut yourself and stain your clothes with blood, pour it directly on the stain.  Let it sit for 30 minutes then rub and rinse those blood stains away.


  • It can also be applied to open cuts.  When you see a wound that is bubbing, know that it is killing bacteria.  Apply it periodically throughout the day to the wound until a scab is formed.
