Did you know that bottle of hydrogen peroxide, the familiar brown bottle, has lots of uses besides cleaning cuts and boo-boos?

I love it when a product has more than one use.

  • Put hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle to clean and sanitize shower tiles.
  • Put hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle to clean and sanitize cutting boards.
  • Use hydrogen peroxide as a mild bleach to brighten clothes in the laundry.
  • Use hydrogen peroxide as a mild bleach to remove stains on carpets and grout. (Do a spot test first; it may bleach color.)
  • Use hydrogen peroxide to clean vegetables and fruits. Soak vegetables and fruits in a sinkful of cold water and 1/4 cup peroxide for just a few minutes. Then swish and rinse.
  • Use hydrogen peroxide to help provide strong growth for your plants. Add a few drops of peroxide to the water then water plants as usual.

Hi! Thanks you for visiting as well as commenting at my blog. I never thought to put peroxide in a spray bottle, although I do use it for many things also, including adding it to our pond for algae reduction.

After reading your profile, I wanted to leave a quick comment that I love Nicholas Cage movies also. :)
