Your favorite use for peroxide?

I LOVE peroxide! I use it to get stains out of laundry, the carpet, mattresses. I use it to disinfect (instead of chemicals like bleach or lysol). Contrary to popular belief, peroxide does not "bleach" everything. I have never had a problem with peroxide bleaching my carpet or clothing or anything else so far. My favorite use is for the carpet stains. I just twist a spray nozzle onto the peroxide bottle (peroxide mustn't be exposed to light) and use it just about every day to get something off the carpet or a rug. I spray it and then tamp it up with a cloth diaper. Sometimes it needs repeating, but it works fabulously!

  • LOVE it for cleaning out stains, especially blood - it works better than anything else I've ever tried. I also like rinsing my mouth with it, the dentist said that once a day is fine to reduce bacteria. (Instead of mouthwash, he said that most don't actually kill germs)
