25 surprising uses for hydrogen peroxide: Why you need it in your home

This article was originally published by our friend Anya V at Living Traditionally.

In households around the world, a milder and more diluted version of hydrogen peroxide is used. The general chemical we use at home is normally present from 3 to 5 percent.

When we cut ourselves and pout hydrogen peroxide on the wound, the solution actually releases oxygen molecules and, thus, the bubbling appears.

Hydrogen Peroxide Uses and Benefits

Note: The majority of these uses refer to a 3% consistency of hydrogen peroxide. Also, the abbreviation ‘HP’, found throughout the list, stands for hydrogen peroxide.

1.) Lightens toenails and fingernails

Soak nails in 3 percent HP and hold for some time. When done, rinse well and admire the results.

2.) Hair bleacher

HP acts as a milder version of other recommended hair bleachers. Use it as you would use any other bleaching product to get top results.

3.) Hair locks highlights

use HP on damp hair by spraying it and you will get light and fresh highlights. Keep spray on for 15 minutes before rinsing it.

4.) Wound cleaning and disinfection

This is especially beneficial for small wounds, which can be cleaned with 3 percent HP. You need a small cap of the liquid that you can directly apply on the wound.

5.) Eliminate boils

In a bathtub, pour only one cup of 35 percent HP. Soak in the tub to get rid of boils forever and regenerate the skin as well.

6.) Treats calluses and corns

To soften calluses and corns and destroy them for good, mix equal parts of HP and warm water and soak in it.

7.) Get rid of skin mites

HP can help you deal with skin mites in no time. Spray HP on affected skin and repeat treatment, wait a few minutes, and then repeat process.

8.) Helps with foot fungus

Prepare a mixture of HP and water. Keep liquid in a dark glass bottle, so the HP isn’t in direct contact with the sunlight. Apply mix to fungus directly. For best results, mix equal parts of 3 percent HP and water.

9.) Stain remover

Fabric stains, especially from blood are successfully removed with HP. Apply directly on stain, let it act for one minute and clean with cold water. Repeat if needed.

10.) Clears fungus from aquariums

To keep your aquarium clean, HP is the best option. Suitable directions for use can be found on the internet, since you need to keep in mind not harming the fish.

11.) Household cleaner

13.) No more organic stains

Anything from sweat, blood, wine and coffee can be cleaned with HP. Mix 1 part dish detergent with two parts HP and apply directly onto stains. Keep in mind that due to the bleaching properties of HP, it can lighten dark fabrics as well.
