Ashley is sharing tips for using hydrogen peroxide in your home.
Hydrogen Peroxide is a first aid necessity, but did you know it is also a great way to get things clean? In fact, Hydrogen Peroxide is one of those little miracles in a bottle that no one knows about. It’s frugal and very flexible to use in many applications throughout the home. Check out these cool Hydrogen Peroxide cleaning hacks.
Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning Hacks
- Disinfect your counter tops. Peroxide in itself is great for killing germs. If it works on cuts and scrapes, think how much more it can do for your counter tops. Mix two tablespoons of peroxide with 2 tablespoons of baking soda for a sparkling clean surface. Be careful not to do this on granite counter tops, though, as it can strip the sealant.
- Clean out your ears. Not only does peroxide work wonders at cleaning cuts, but it’s great at cleaning out wax from your ears without the potential of harming your ear drums. Simply pour a capful into your ear canal, let it bubble, and then let it pour out of your ears.
- Use it for stains. Hydrogen Peroxide is a natural stain remover. It works in a lot of the same way as bleach only without the chlorine. Use it to get out pet stains, grape juice stains and so much more from clothes and carpet. Test a small spot first.
- Clean your toilet. Instead of scrubbing your toilet, pour some peroxide in the bowl and leave it sit for a couple hours. It will kill lingering bacteria, break down stains, and disinfect without all the scrubbing.
- Clean your toothbrushes. It is important to get a new toothbrush every 6-months, but in between, bacteria can build up on your toothbrush. Prevent bacteria from growing in your mouth by cleaning dunking your toothbrush in a cup of peroxide for about 30-minutes. Rinse your toothbrush and enjoy that new toothbrush feeling.
- Make your whites whiter. Instead of using bleach, get your clothes even whiter with a cup of hydrogen peroxide. Simply pour 1-cup into the bleach compartment in your washer for cleaner, whiter whites.
These are just a few great reasons to have hydrogen peroxide on hand, but anything you clean with a strong cleaner, you can use peroxide instead. How do you use your hydrogen peroxide? Share in the comments below!
