Hello Everyone,Click to read about our staff

Hydrogen peroxide - chemically represented as H2O2 - is one
of the most common household disinfectants in the world. In
fact, odds are pretty good that you have a bottle in your medicine cabinet or under your kitchen sink right now. People typically use hydrogen peroxide for sanitizing small cuts and as a whitener for delicate items, however there is much more to this little brown bottle than most of us realize.

Hint 1:

Use hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash to freshen breath. It kills the bacteria that causes halitosis. Use a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water.

Hint 2:

Once a week, soak your toothbrush (or electric-toothbrush head) in a solution of hydrogen peroxide (3% in 97% water). An easy way to do this is to pour fresh hydrogen peroxide into an empty, wide-mouth, plastic pill bottler and then place your brush head in the bottle. After at least five minutes, rinse the toothbrush thoroughly in water to eliminate the hydrogen peroxide taste, flick off the excess moisture and place the brush where it can thoroughly air dry without coming into contact with other brushes and devices. Pour the hydrogen peroxide down the drain, where it will safely break down into water and oxygen, neither of which is a pollutant. Refill the little pill bottle with a fresh pour for each use because hydrogen peroxide breaks down quickly when exposed to light and it won't last long.
