Frugal Friday’s – Hydrogen Peroxide Extraordinary Uses

Hello everyone!! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything but I was on vacation with my family last week and I spent this week getting my tween ready for school. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been crossing stuff off my list of things to do. I plan on posting the projects and crafts I’ve been working on soon. How’s everyone doing? I’m hoping things slow down a little now that summer is over, school is back in session and fall is on the horizon.

I’d like to talk about Hydrogen Peroxide  and all it’s extraordinary uses in this weeks Frugal Friday post. Just like vinegar and baking soda you can use hydrogen peroxide around the house.

  • Remove stains of unknown origin – Dont know what it is and still want to remove it? Mix a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide with a little cream of tartar or a dab of non-gel toothpaste. Rub the paste on the stain with a soft cloth and rinse. The stain, whatever it is should be gone.
  • Add 1 cup to your load to whiten whites in place of bleach.
  • Mix equal parts blue Dawn and Hydrogen peroxide, apply to stained clothing and let sit for 30 minutes, launder as usual.
  • Remove fresh blood stains by applying hydrogen peroxide directly to the stain, rinse with fresh water and launder as usual.
  • Hydrogen peroxide is a bacteria-killer and can be use to sanitize your cutting board.
  • Remove mildew by spraying directly on the offending area and wipe clean.
  • Soak stained plastic food containers in peroxide overnight to remove stains.
  •  Clean toys with hydrogen peroxide to sanitize.
  • Mix 50/50 with water to clean windows.
  • Make a paste using hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to clean dirty baked on pans, allow to sit for 15-20 and scrub clean.

Hydrogen Peroxide is a great all natural cleaner with multiple uses in and around your home. Go grab a bottle, chances are you already have one.

TAKE CARE: Hydrogen Peroxide is considered corrosive – even in the relatively weak 3% solution sold as a household antiseptic. Don’t put in your eyes, around your nose or swallow.
