Re: OT: uses for peroxide

Isn't this interesting? I don't like to use bleach with my septic system but love the way it kills germs. This sounds like it won't be as harmful on my septic.
I love the idea of putting my toothbrush in peroxide to keep it clean! But I wouldn't suggest that anyone use it on their hair unless they are naturally blonde anyway. That could be an orange disaster.

Thanks so much.  I have used peroxide for my mouth and for small wounds,
especially on pets, but never had such a great list...

      I thought this was very interesting... so I wanted to share it with
all of you...
      I hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day.... I am loving this
      Uses  for Peroxide  (Safer  and Healthier than Bleach)

      I  would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little ole
bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. What
does  bleach cost?  Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor's office?
Why? Because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nurses who work in
the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach  at home. They are
wiser and know better!  Did  you also know bleach was invented in the
40's? It's chlorine,And it was used to kill our troops.  Peroxide was
invented during WWI in the 20's. It was used to save and help cleanse the
needs of our troops and hospitals. Please think about  this.

      1.  Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the
and hold  in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it
when I bathe.) No more canker sores and your teeth will be whiter without
      expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.

      2. Let your  toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them
of germs.

      3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs
leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you  wipe,
spray it on the counters.

      4. After rinsing off your  wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on
to kill salmonella and other  bacteria.

      5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a  50/50
of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every  night and let

      6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide  for five to ten
several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal
any medicine but was healed by soaking in  peroxide.

      7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide  and water
keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your  septic
like bleach or most other disinfectants  will.

      8.  Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50
mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help
kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose into a

      9.  If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist
away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten
minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

      10.  And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray
50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You
not have the peroxide-burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages but
natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, or dirty blonde. It
lightens gradually, so it's not a drastic change.

      11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath  to help rid boils,
fungus, or other skin infections.

      12. You can  also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load
whites in your  laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing,
it directly on  the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and
rinse with cold  water. Repeat if necessary.

      13.  I use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing,
is why I love it so much for this.
