Hydrogen peroxide is an all-natural sanitizer that kills the yucky organisms you'd rather not have crawling around your home. As the only germicidal solution consisting of only water and oxygen, it serves many uses. From sanitizing food, ridding fungus, fighting infection, to mouthwash, hydrogen peroxide can be used all around the house. Here are just 19 uses for hydrogen peroxide.

Mouthwash

A cap-full of peroxide held in your mouth for up to 10 minutes a day is an all natural mouthwash. 

Tooth whitener

Did you know many teeth whitening products have peroxide as an ingredient? Just by using peroxide as a mouthwash daily, you'll see your teeth get whiter. 

Hair lightener

 Want slight highlights in your hair? Don't want to spend 20 bucks at the salon? No worries. As a bleaching agent used in hair salons (inside products), peroxide is safe to turn your brown hair to a lighter shade of brown. Be advised, it works gradually and if you want super highlights you should see your beautician.

Contact lens solution
