Stain Remover. Works very well on blood, if you get to it fairly quickly  Just pour a bit on a cloth and dab at your clothing; if it has sat for a while, pour some on and let it sit for a couple of hours.   Also, some people just have a chemical difference in their sweat that leaves yellow underarm stains on white clothing.  Or wine stains on a white blouse?  Again, pour some hydrogen peroxide on the stain and let it sit a couple hours.  Then wash as you would normally


 Antiseptic. Works great to help kill germs and prevent infection on cuts and scrapes.  Make sure it bubbles up first before dabbing it off.


  Mouthwash. You can use it straight or mix 1 to 1, water to hydrogen peroxide.  Gargle, Swoosh, Spit, and Rinse. 


  Toothpaste. You can make your own toothpaste by using two tablespoons of baking soda and one tablespoon of peroxide. 

  Cutting Board and Countertop Sanitizer. Vinegar kills most germs, and hydrogen peroxide kills most of the rest.  The two kill more germs and bacteria than bleach alone, if you do this:  have the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide in two different spray bottles, spray on one first, then the other.  Then rinse clean.


  Watering Your Plants. If you tend to over-water your plants, this is for you.  Mix 1 oz of hydrogen peroxide with 1 quart of water, and water your plants normally.  This adds oxygen to your soil, helping stave off root rot and enhances root development. 

  Kill Shower Mold and Mildew. Spray on the surface and let sit, then wipe clean.  Or spray after your shower to prevent mold from forming.


  Toilet Bowl Cleaner. Pour 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide into the bowl, let stand for 20 minutes, and scrub clean.You can do the same thing with vinegar.


1  For Faster Germination When Soaking Seeds.  Apparently if you soak your seeds in 1 cup of water mixed with 1.5 t hydrogen peroxide, the seeds will germinate faster.
