10 Surprising Uses For Hydrogen Peroxide YOU NEED TO KNOW

November 7, 2019

10 Surprising Uses For Hydrogen Peroxide You Need To Know Number One – Treat Sinus Infections This gentle method will safely eliminate infections, clear up congestion and relieve the condition. To clear up your nasal passages, mix four parts of water and one part food-grade hydrogen peroxide. Put the mixture in a nasal spray bottle and spray it into your nose and after a moment or so, blow it right back out. You can even irrigate your nose using this solution with a neti pot. Number Two – Antiseptic Mouthwash Bad breathe is a condition that many people suffer with. Commercial mouthwashes only mask the smell and dry out the mouth, making the issue even worse. Instead, mix an equal part of water and hydrogen peroxide, and use it as a mouthwash. It will kill germs that cause bad breath and gently whiten teeth over time. If you happen to suffer from tonsil stones, gargle daily with a 50-50 mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide, for at least 30 seconds. You should notice that the stones vanish within a week or two. Number Three – Clear Up Acne Pimples and clogged pores are downright embarrassing regardless of your age. To clear up your skin, use hydrogen peroxide mixed with water as a facial rinse or toner. Hydrogen peroxide has any bacterial properties and a drying effect on the skin. It will kill bacteria that cause acne and will also disaffect and tighten your pores, giving you a much clearer and younger-looking complexion. Number Four – Remove Ear Wax To remove dried up ear wax, simply soak a cotton ball with hydrogen peroxide, then lie down on your side and put a few drops into your ear. You will immediately notice that the hydrogen peroxide starts to fizzle or bubble and it may feel ticklish or itchy. This is the hydrogen peroxide activating, breaking down the wax buildup. After about five to ten minutes or when the bubbling stops, stand up and drain your ear, then repeat these steps with your other ear. Number Five – Treat Foot Fungus Foot fungus or athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that affects the skin on the feet, this infection can spread onto the toenails and hands, and it is contagious. To stop this embarrassing fungal growth, Combine equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water in a dark-colored spray bottle. Next, apply this solution to the affected area on your feet or hands every night until the fungus clears up. Number Six – Disinfect Childrens Toys Let’s face it, children drool and they tend to put just about everything in their mouth, especially during the first few years of their lives. Hydrogen peroxide is a safe cleaning alternative to use around children compared to commercial cleaning products that are harsh and often cause lung irritations. By regularly disinfecting kids toys and playing areas with hydrogen peroxide, you’ll keep germs and bacteria away. Number Seven – Get Rid of Musty Odors Kitchen and bath towels are notorious for getting that unpleasant musty odor over time. You can get rid of these funky odors by washing towels in a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and plain white vinegar. Number Eight – Whiten Laundry Have you ever noticed some yellowing around the collar or armpit areas of your white shirts? Or are your favorite whites looking more like ivory these days? To revitalize your yellow garments, add a cup of hydrogen peroxide to a basin filled with water and let the fabric soak for a good 15-30 minutes, then wash as regular. Number Nine – All-Purpose Cleaner Hydrogen peroxide is the safe and cheap alternative to commercial cleaning products. It can be used as a standalone solution or mixed with water. It’s great for cleaning kitchen and bathroom surfaces, including tiles, sinks, toilet bowls, bathtubs, and showers. You can even whiten the grout between your tiles by making a thick paste of hydrogen peroxide and flower. Apply it directly onto the grout, cover it with plastic wrap over night and rinse it clean in the morning. If mold seems to be an issue, you can spray hydrogen peroxide regularly on areas where mold and mildew are present. This will stop fungal growth and remove discoloration. Number Ten – Clean Fruits and Veggies and Preserve Freshness Commercially grown produce are heavily sprayed with all kinds of pesticides and fungicides. To get rid of these toxic chemicals and to preserve freshness, soak your fruits and vegetables in a sink full of water and a quarter cup of food-grade hydrogen peroxide for about 20 minutes. Rinse and dry them properly before storing. Thanks for watching! Don’t forget to like and share this video and subscribe for more!

    Do you suggest "food grade h2o2" for all these?

  • Reply Rain Csolak July 2, 2017 at 12:22 am

    Great info. White vinigar alone will get out the funkiest smells in the wash. For example cat urine. At one time I'd have tossed anything a cat hat wet but White vinigar in the wash and rinse cycle leaves the material or cloths smelling clean.

    This does work on my & family – putting 5 drops in each year upon getting sniffles!!  But be very careful to use only a 3% solution which is in a brown bottle at drugstore. The food grade H2O2 you can buy (not in dark brown bottle) at health food stores is usually very high – 16% thru 32%.  If you put that in your ear – it will eat away at your eardrum b/c at that percentage it's an acid. You will lose your hearing totally in that ear and it will be very painful.  AGAIN – The ONLY percentage to use is 3%. (Only If you're good in math, you can dilute 16% with water down to 3% solution). I can't stress how important it is to only use a 3% solution!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  There, I did my good deed for the day!

    Brown bottle is not food grade, food grade is 35%

  • Reply Jumpercable wireless February 7, 2018 at 6:41 pm

    The sinus infection spray should be made with FOOD GRADE hydrogen peroxide not the most common type shown in the picture (Does not Indicate FOOD GRADE) The food grade may require dilution with distilled water depending on percentage of Peroxide. The 35% will BURN you bad. Read the label and learn to follow directions (For Your Safety).

    Without concentration details for different usages, the video is practically just egging us to look elsewhere for them, and is practically useless.

    People should only get the food grade 35% H2O2 if they know what they're doing and when
    using it don't mix it with tap water unless you're using a filter,
    because chlorine will destroy the oxygen.
    I highly suggest the book "The one minute cure" i have used it effectively many times.

    Except for the ear wax and acne removal, all of the above uses are designated for use with FOOD GRADE Hydrogen peroxide. The ear wax and acne removal should be done with the traditional, over the counter, medicinal Hydrogen peroxide.

    You need to have that food grade 35% but you can not buy it anywhere here in Holland.

    WHY a dark colored spray bottle, a clear bottle wont work or what?

  • Reply Patriot Retiree September 16, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    Do not use hydrogen peroxide on the outside or inside of your body unless you do a thorough job of rinsing it off and out. Nearly impossible to do if you are putting it inside your nose and ear. Hydrogen peroxide removes both diseased and healthy tissue. Damage won't be noticed after first time use; it is the continued use when you will find you have weakened the tooth enamel, sinus lining, and ear drum. Hydrogen peroxide is effective in removing tonsil stones because it effectively eats away the extra folds of tissue which hold food bits that cause the "stones". Practicing the habit of drinking water after eating anything and gargling with water more often will prevent the development of "stones."

    I never knew about the mouth wash thing til about 10 years ago. I was getting it trouble at my school in my hometown so I was sent to live with my uncle (VERY STRICT AND DOESN’T PUT UP WITH TROUBLEMAKERS) til the end of the school year!! Anyway they didn’t use it as mouth wash they had me put it on my toothbrush before the toothpaste and on top after the toothpaste was on the brush!!! It worked VERY WELL!!!! I didn’t like brushing my teeth when I was younger so my teeth were kind of yellow when I went out there. After a few weeks I came home for one weekend and everyone who saw me were AMAZED!!! My teeth were VERY WHITE and I had lost a good amount of fat and put on a lot muscle! My uncle lives on a farm in a VERY SMALL town like an hour north of me!! Well this comment kind of got away from me and has a whole lot of shit that has nothing to do with what I was trying to say. But I’m not gonna delete it all and feel like I wasted time!!! If you’ve made it this far, THANK YOU FOR READING and I hope I was able to entertain you for a moment!!! ??
