Just as hydrogen peroxide is an excellent cleaning agent in hospitals and laboratories (often at higher than 3 percent solutions and with rather advanced delivery systems, such as steam machines which can render an environment sterile and ready for occupants within a matter of hours), there are loads of uses for hydrogen peroxide in the average home.
A Spray Bottle of 3 Percent H2O2 Covers a Lot of Ground
A spray bottle of 3 percent food grade peroxide makes an excellent replacement for all those toxic spray cleaners at a fraction of the price.
Kitchens, Bathrooms, Walls, Carpets, Appliances and More
Safe for use on counters, tile, linoleum floors, glass, appliances and fixtures such as sinks, toilets, tubs and showers, that 3 percent spray bottle can travel throughout the home to leave things clean, disinfected and smelling fresh. One interesting result of this is that many people are so used to the smells of harsh chemicals that new ‘green cleaning’ companies are having to re-introduce people to what clean really smells like – and the answer is – nothing! It smells like fresh air and sunshine – not perfumes or citrus oils commonly used to mask the odor of harsh chemicals in many household cleaning products. You can even add it to carpet cleaning machines for a real deep disinfectant cleaning.
Did you know? The ‘miracle cleaning power’ of ‘OxiClean is… shhhh don’t spoil it for the big advertisers – Sodium Percarbonate – the dry form of hydrogen peroxide!
Billy Mays can rest in peace knowing the cleaning product that made him famous is actually totally safe and made up of soda ash and hydrogen peroxide.
And now that you know this, you can find sodium percarbonate at seriously reduced prices by seeking it out under its chemical name rather than its ‘brand name’. Next time you see Oxy Clean in the store read the ingredients label!
