Green Clean with Hydrogen Peroxide

When it comes to green cleaning, most of us think of  cleaning with natural ingredients such as lemons, vinegar and baking soda.  But what about hydrogen peroxide?

Hydrogen peroxide 3% is a very good alternative to chlorine bleach.  Hydrogen peroxide is earth friendly and can be used around the home for many things:

Use it to wash your white laundry instead of using bleach.

For removing blood stains from clothes, blot the stain with hydrogen peroxide then rinse with cold water.

To sterilize cuts and scrapes, use hydrogen peroxide.

Mix hydrogen peroxide with baking soda to make your own teeth whitener.

Mixing one part hydrogen peroxide to two parts water makes a wonderful mold cleaner for the bathroom.  This mixture also works well when cleaning and disinfecting the toilet bowl.

Clean bacteria and salmonella by adding hydrogen peroxide to a clean cloth and wiping the affected area.

To clean your fruits and vegetables, mix cold water with 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide. Spray and rinse.

Make sure to use 3% hydrogen peroxide for all of your cleaning and disinfecting recipes for your home.
