I Had No Idea...!

Sometimes you can find out about something that's been around for a long time...and could have been very helpful, if only you had been presented all the facts!

This is the case with peroxide! Safe, very useful, good for your health, and might even been of some help in saving a life! But the big drug companies couldn't make enough profit from it to spread the information.

Sounds familiar, doesn't it? This is a long read, but is well worth the time, believe me!

Hydrogen peroxide was discovered in 1818 by French chemist Louis-Jacques Thenard (1777 - 1857) when he finally succeeded in preparing pure hydrogen peroxide, which he called "oxygenated water," and determined its density.

Dr Edward Rosenow (1875 – 1966) discovered that H2O2 was the safe, effective antimicrobal, anitviral agent he had spent years looking for. Unfortunately he died before seeing his discovery become widely accepted. His friend Father Wilhelm, a Catholic Priest and chemistry teacher presented Rosenow’s research to several pharmaceutical companies only to get the same response: Rosenow’s work on H2O2 was very interesting and potentially important, but H2O2 was an inexpensive substance that could not be patented and had no commercial value. This is the reason it is not prescibed as a means of treating many illnesses; drug companies cannot make any money from it!

The benefits threaten the antibiotic industry, it’s a threat to the heart bypass industry as it cleans arteries of athersclerotic build up, and it’s a threat to the surgical and chemotherapy cancer treatment industry; combined with radiation it will rapidly reduce cancer growths with less toxic doses of x-ray.

Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide In The Kitchen, Bathroom & Around The Home

Used As A Sanitizer
To disinfect all surfaces use a 3% solution and use the spray bottle provided. Wipe down surfaces and effectively kill bacteria and viruses. This can be used on all surfaces in the bathroom and kitchen including fridges and electrical appliances, use on wooden chopping boards to kill salmonella and other germs.

Hydrogen Peroxide creates no residual toxins of any kind and it breaks down to water and oxygen within a few hours leaving a fresh smell. Not only sanitizing the areas you want clean but at the same time meaning you avoid using harmful or poisonous chemicals in and around your home and family.

Vegetable and Meat Wash
Put 40ml of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide into regular washing up bowl of cool water and use to rinse fish, chicken, meat and vegetables killing bacteria and viruses. Rinse after with clean water. This process increases the life of food.

Research published by the Journal of Food and Science in 2003 showed effective results of using hydrogen peroxide to decontaminate apples and melons that were infected with strains of E.coli. This will apply to fish and meats containing potentially detrimental bacteria.

Dishwasher Additive
Add two Oz of 3% Hydrogen peroxide to your dishwasher to prevent spreading of colds and disease also to make your dishes sparkle.

Dental Hygiene
Tooth brushes can be soaked in 3% H2O2 between uses to eliminate most germs. Remember to store it in a dark container to prevent degradation.

The Merck Manuals recommended diluting 3% hydrogen peroxide 50/50 with distilled water. This solution can simply be used as a mouthwash and will help to whiten teeth and fight oral disease.

Ear Wash
Use 50/50 water and 3% solution as a rinse to clear blocked ears and treat infections.

Add 225ml of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to your wash in place of bleaches.

Hair Dye
The old classic, mix 3% solution 50/50 with distilled water and spray on damp hair after a shower and comb through. This will give a more natural highlighted affect.

Removing Fresh Blood Stains
Pour 3% solution onto fresh unset blood stains and let sit for a minute. Rinse thoroughly with cold water. (Not hot, this will set the blood). Be careful though as H2O2 is a bleach.

Removing Wine Stains From Carpet
First spot test an area of carpet for colour fastness. Apply 3% solution to stain through spay bottle or with cotton bud for small drops. Work the solution into the carpet with a sponge to make sure it’s saturated. Let sit for 10-15 minutes and blot with a clean dry cloth.

Large scale Cleaning
For entire rooms that have become contaminated by fungus, moulds, bacteria for example after flood damage or waste spillage. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) listed hydrogen peroxide as among the substances that can be used against mold. A 3% solution used in a large pressurized sprayer can be used to apply throughout the room.

When mixed with correct quantities of baking soda and salt. Mix ¼ cup of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide with ½ cup of baking soda to form a paste. Some recipes call for salt. Store in a plastic container which light cannot pass through.

Foot Soak
Add a few tablespoons of Epsom salts and add 100ml-200ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a bowl of warm water. This will help to heal cuts, athlete’s foot, scaly skin and calluses.

Bath soak
Add 280ml to 560ml of 35% solution to a full bath of water along with ½ a cup of Epsom salts for an amazing detoxifying soak, (note do not detoxify after 6-7pm as increased oxygen may keep you awake).

Tile Grout Cleaning In Baths And Showers
Spray the tiles with a 3% solution in a spray bottle and allow to soak for 10-15 minutes now scrub with a toothbrush soaked in the solution, mildew and tough stains will disappear rapidly.

Removing Pet Odors From Carpets
Use a 3% solution in a spray bottle and thoroughly saturate the area. Let stand. After at least 30 minutes, spray again, and then spread a paste of baking soda and 3% hydrogen peroxide over the area and let stand until dry. Vacuum when dry.

Body Spray
Spray 3% solution on to your body after washing to replace the acid mantle on your skin that soap removes.

Facial Cleanser
Use 3% H2O2 on cotton wool balls to wipe your face after washing and before bed,

I guess that as far as big business is concerned, we are worth more dead or dying...than we are worth as living customers. Don't you just love the medical and drug industry?

My friends, let's get some coffee and go sit on the patio for a bit. Hope it doesn't rain again!

Morning Jim!! And being a good prepper, I have 3 large bottles of this on hand at all times too! LOL
I've been using it in the laundry for months and it seems to really work. I didn't know about all the other uses around the house though. Thanks for this post. I'm going to cut and paste into my home management binder if you don't mind.
Have a great day!!

A site that has much about Food Grade (35%) Peroxide http://educate Scroll down list. It is amazing medicine. I keep a bottle in the fridge or freezer - 35% can explode in heat.

Momlady said...

While I knew about using it as a mouth wash and bleach I was unaware of the many other uses for it. Thanks, Jim!

Herne said...

Thank you for a wonderful post! =)

Hey Cath...
I didn't know all of these uses until I started researching it. I would have never known, or even guessed!

Gonna add to the amount I keep on hand, for sure!

Thank you for coming by today!

Hey Anon 6:14...
I do remember reading that it was used as a rocket fuel, so I guess that it stands to reason it would be flammable. Amazing stuff!

I find out something new everyday!

Thanks for the visit this morning!

Hey Momlady...
Always glad to furnish these little tidbits of information...and glad to have my friends drop by!

Thanks, my friend!

Hey Herne...
My pleasure! Glad you liked it!

Thank you so much for coming by today!

Hey JoJo...
Hard to put something like that over on the folks, huh?

So where are you headed off to on your next big adventure? You are just a wild and crazy woman...guess that's why I Like ya!

Take care...and thanks, sweetie, for dropping in!

Talk about synchronicity, I have been learning about 35% food grade H2O2, I am about to do an order for 6 bottles, gonna split it between a couple of people (buying in bulk is cheaper), I'm also getting the smallest bottle they sell (quarts instead of gallons), I know that once you open it, it begins losing its strength, so the smaller bottles are better in that respect.

I's sending a little something over in your email, you'll appreciate it. :)


HermitJim said...

Hey Wretha...
Seems like we must be on the same wave length, for sure!

One thing about it...the stuff is cheap enough , even at the drug store. Can't beat cheap and ueful together!

I sure do appreciate you coming by today!

Felinae said...

Thank you once again, Uncle Hermit :)
I knew of some of these tips, but not all of them.

Catman also uses it to kill any fungi that may infect the seedlings. He washes the infected leaves with the peroxide, it kills the fungus and does no harm to the plant. He had to use it on our soy bean seedling. The little plant is doing fine now and is growing like crazy. :D

I am going to save this list, thanks again!


HermitJim said...

Hey Felinae...
There is enough info on the web about the use of peroxide in the yard and garden...I could do another post about it!

Very useful stuff as far as I could tell!

Glad you could come by today, my friend!

Mechanic in Illinois said...

On top of all its other uses we use peroxide in spray bottles to blood trail deer and other wild game. Spray it on the trail and if it bubbles,its blood. I also store several bottles for whatever. Thanks for another great lesson.

HermitJim said...

Hey Mechanic...
Now that's a use I hadn't thought of! Thanks for sharing that!

I appreciate you coming by today!

If they could the drug industry would block it. I just found out (after promoting the use of baking soda for innumerable things, esp. our health) that it now is prescribed in tablet form by doctors! Simply amazing since no one took my advice about it. The maker/s are making a killing, aren't they.

Taking the 35% Food Grade Peroxide daily will do wonders for a person. Of course, it isn't diluted 50-50%. more like 10 drops or less to a glass of water. The seller of it should furnish specific directions for diluting. We just can't realize how many bad bacteria we have and what they do to us over time.

Sissy said...

Forgot to say: my understanding is its not safe to use the 3% internally. Hope those who already read your post read this comment.
