7 Surprising Uses for Hydrogen Peroxide

August 13, 2019

Hydrogen peroxide has been found in medicine
cabinets and first aid kits for many years. It is made of water with extra oxygen. This mixture then makes a substance that kills
germs. You can find hydrogen peroxide in many forms.
It is very dangerous in high concentrations. However, lower concentrations can be good
for your health and your home. Hydrogen peroxide can be placed on small wounds,
cuts, and grazes to clean out the injury and to kill any germs. Hydrogen peroxide can also fight certain infections
and get rid of harmful toxins. You should use the 3% hydrogen peroxide for
your health and household needs. This is usually the only concentration that
you would find at your local pharmacy or drug store. Here is a list of some of the amazing things
that hydrogen peroxide can do: 1. Make Teeth Pearly White Hydrogen peroxide is highly effective in whitening
teeth. Many of the whitening toothpastes that you
find in the store contain hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide mildly bleaches your teeth
and brightens your smile after several doses. Here is a recipe to make a hydrogen peroxide
mixture to whiten your teeth: – Mix together equal parts of hydrogen peroxide
and lukewarm water. – Swish the solution around in your mouth
for few seconds. – Spit it out and rinse with regular water.
– Use this remedy 1 or 2 times daily until you get the desired result. It is extremely important that you do NOT
swallow any hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide can also irritate your mouth
and gums. Use caution when using and if you experience
any of these symptoms, stop use immediately. 2. Whiten Nails Like teeth, hydrogen peroxide can whiten your
fingernails. Take care of your fingernails and utilize
hydrogen peroxide to  keep them looking clean, bright and healthy. Here is a recipe to make
a hydrogen peroxide mixture to brighten your fingernails. – Mix 3 to 4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
into ½ cup of water. – Soak your nails in the solution for 2 to
3 minutes. – Gently scrub your nails using a soft toothbrush.
– Rinse them thoroughly with water. – Do this once or twice a week for several
months. It is important to note that hydrogen peroxide
can dry out your fingernails. To prevent this from occurring, rub some olive
oil or coconut oil on your nails after using a hydrogen peroxide mixture. 3. Eliminate Toenail Fungus Hydrogen peroxide can kill germs. Thus, it also can help fight toenail fungus. When applied, hydrogen peroxide can quickly
kill the fungus. Hydrogen peroxide can also help other foot-related
issues, such as calluses and corns. Hydrogen peroxide will kill any built-up bacteria
and will work to soften the skin of the calluses and corns. How to eliminate toenail fungus: – Prepare a mixture of equal amounts of hydrogen
peroxide and water. – Put the solution in a spray bottle.
– Spray the solution on the affected toes before going to bed.
– Leave it on overnight. – The next morning, wash the affected area
in lukewarm water. – Gently scrub the toenails with a soft toothbrush.
– Use this remedy daily for about a month to get rid of the infection completely. 4. Clear Up Acne Hydrogen peroxide can even eliminate, or diminish,
acne. When applied to the skin, hydrogen peroxide
oxidizes the cell walls of the bacteria. It then kills them. Once the bacteria is destroyed,
the acne will heal quickly. Hydrogen peroxide also prevents future acne
breakouts by controlling the amount of oils that your face makes. How do we do that, you ask? Here you go: – Clean your skin with a gentle cleanser.
– Dip a cotton ball into hydrogen peroxide and dab it onto the affected area.
– Allow it to sit for 1 to 2 minutes. – Rinse it off and apply a light, oil-free
moisturizer. – Repeat 1 or 2 times a day until you get
rid of the acne completely. It is very important that you do not use hydrogen
peroxide on sensitive skin. If used, it can caused increased irritation
or burning. 5. Support Oral Health Hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria, germs, and
fungus. Because of its ability to kill germs, hydrogen peroxide is widely used in the dental
field. It slows the rate which germs grow in your
mouth. Hydrogen peroxide also reduces the risk of
certain dental issues, such as plaque and gingivitis. Hydrogen peroxide can even cure, or lessen
the pain of, a toothache. Below you will find a simple recipe to improve
your oral health: – Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and
water. – Gargle with this solution for a couple of
minutes, just like you would use a mouthwash. – Spit it out.
– Rinse your mouth with plain water. Also, dip your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide
to kill any germs living on it. You can even soak it in hydrogen peroxide
overnight to allow it to kill even more germs. 6. Loosen Earwax Excessive earwax is uncomfortable and unsightly. Look no further than hydrogen peroxide to
fix this ailment. Hydrogen peroxide removes not only ear wax,
but also dust and debris from the ear. Hydrogen peroxide also alleviates the itchy
and uncomfortable feeling you get when you have ear wax. Here is a natural remedy, including hydrogen
peroxide, to combat earwax: – Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and
water. – Fill an ear dropper with the solution.
– Tilt your head sideways and put a few drops of the solution into your ear.
– Wait 5 minutes, then tilt your head to the opposite side to allow gravity to pull
the solution out of your ear. – Wipe away the earwax using a clean cloth. 7. Sanitize Fruits and Vegetables Most of the fruits and vegetables that we
find in our grocery stores are coated with a residue from the farmer’s chemicals, which
are mostly used to kill bugs. Eating fruits and vegetables that have these
chemicals on them can negatively impact your health. Hydrogen peroxide is a known germ killer and
kills bacteria, as well, such as E. coli. Hydrogen peroxide can also help all your produce
to last longer. Here is an easy way to remove the chemical
residue from your produce: – Pour hydrogen peroxide into a spray bottle.
– Spray it over your produce. – Allow it to sit for about 5 minutes.
– Rinse off your produce in running water and pat dry thoroughly. If you like the video, give it a thumbs up

    The following note is about 35% hydrogen peroxide, not drug store 3%:
    Hey folks, I read over posts here on YT of the dilutions people are using water:35%HydrogenPeroxide. Most seem it would be catastrophic to the lining of your alimentary canal (the whole passage along which food passes through the body from mouth to anus. It includes the esophagus, stomach, and intestines.) I take 3 drops in 3/4 cup of water and often my stomach and intestines become bloated.

    So I tested it directly from the bottle, one drop on the skin of my hand~~IT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL ON SKIN. It BURNED like a fire ant and peeled the skin off that site. So PLEASE DO YOUR HOMEWORK and know 35% h202 is nothing to play with.
