Before you answer, here are 10 clever uses for Hydrogen Peroxide… in the off chance that you are going to clean yourself!
When it’s time for us to clean our Cabin in the Mountain, we have our trusty green clean supplies ready – baking soda, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide. The little know truth is you can use Hydrogen Peroxide anywhere, and if your cost conscious like us… you can’t beat the price: A 16-oz. bottle only costs a buck or so.
Here are 10 ways you can use hydrogen peroxide in your home:
In Your Kitchen
1. Clean the cutting board! Hydrogen peroxide bubbles away any all that gunk left after preparing meat or fish for dinner. As you should know by now, the small cuts in the wood of a cutting board is an area to get clean. Let everything bubble for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse clean.
2. Inside your refrigerator & dishwasher. A non-toxic cleaner, hydrogen peroxide is great for cleaning places that store food and dishes.
3. Clean kitchen sponges. Soak them for 10 minutes in a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and warm water in a shallow dish. Rinse the sponges thoroughly when done.
4. Remove baked-on crud from pots and pans. Combine hydrogen peroxide with enough baking soda to make a paste, then rub onto the dirty pan and let it sit for a while. Come back later with a scrubby sponge and some warm water, and the baked-on stains will lift right off.
In Your Bathroom
5. Whiten grout. If excess moisture has left your tub grout dingy, spray it down with hydrogen peroxide and let it sit. for a little for 15 to 20 minutes. Grab an old tooth brush scrub the grout. You may have to repeat the process a few times, depending on how much mildew you have.
6. The toilet bowl. Pour half a cup of hydrogen peroxide into the toilet bowl, let stand for 20 minutes, then scrub clean.
In The Laundry Room
7. Remove stains from clothing, curtains, and tablecloths. Hydrogen peroxide can be used as a pre treatment for stains — just soak the stain for a little while in 3% hydrogen peroxide before tossing into the laundry. You can also add a cup of peroxide to a regular load of whites to boost brightness. It’s a green alternative to bleach, and works just as well.
8. Brighten floors. Combine half a cup of hydrogen peroxide with one gallon of hot water, then get down on your hands and knees and start focusing on the flooring. Because it’s mild, it’s safe for any floor type, and there’s no need to rinse.
9. Kids’ toys. Hydrogen peroxide is a safe cleaner to use around kids, or anyone with respiratory problems, because it’s not a lung irritant. Fill an opaque spray bottle with hydrogen peroxide and spray toys, toy boxes, doorknobs, and anything else your kids touch on a regular basis. You could also soak a rag in peroxide to make a wipe.
10. On plants. To ward off fungus, add a little hydrogen peroxide to your spray bottle the next time you’re spritzing plants. Use a 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide added to one gallon of water for your plants.
