Goodbye, cleaning services! Who said hydrogen peroxide was only effective for disinfecting cuts and scratches? It is also useful for cleaning, especially for removing stubborn stains from fabrics.
In addition to being useful for household chores, hydrogen peroxide can disinfect and clean a number of useful items, including mattresses and toothbrushes. The following are some of hydrogen peroxide’s strong points:
1. 🛏 The best way to clean the mattress
Are there stains on the mattress? Maybe it would be better if we said blood stains on the mattress? Those days are over! Put 2 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part Dawn dish soap in a spray bottle and mix well. Simply spray it over the mattress and rub it in to remove the stubborn stains. Within seconds, they will vanish!
2. 🧴 A pinch of bleach
There is no need to buy stain remover products when you can easily make your own at home. That’s what I’ve been doing for years! Take a look at this homemade stain remover:
Combine 2 tablespoons of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and 2 tablespoons of Dawn dish soap. Pour this liquid into a spray bottle. Simply apply this cleaner to the stain and scrub it away. All stains are removed in seconds!
3. 🧪 Disinfect your toothbrush
It is a wise idea to disinfect your toothbrush periodically, and the most effective way is to use hydrogen peroxide:
Remove the toothbrush head and place it in a glass. Make sure the bristles are covered in hydrogen peroxide. Allow it to act for five minutes, then remove the toothbrush. Rinse with warm water and your toothbrush is now germ-free.
4. 🍳 No more burnt-on grease on pots and pans
Definitely my favorite! This hydrogen peroxide trick saved me from scrubbing burnt-on grease off pots and trays. Mix ½ cup of baking soda with ¼ cup of dish soap and ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide. Spread the paste over the pan. Allow it to act for a few minutes, then gently remove it. Burnt-on grease will also be removed like magic!
5. ⚫ Remove mold in 10 minutes
Is vinegar the only way to successfully remove mold? False! Pour hydrogen peroxide 3% concentration into a spray bottle and spray it on the moldy area. Let it act for 10 minutes, then scrub away the mold. If necessary, repeat the process. You can use the same method to clean showers and tubs as well.
6. 👚 Get rid of armpit stains on clothes
Do you have yellow armpit stains on your white t-shirts? That’s gross! Whenever you want to raise your arms, you’ll feel uncomfortable. Just mix ½ cup of baking soda with ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1 cup of water. Put this mix on the yellow armpit stains and let it sit overnight. Afterward, wash the clothing in the washer as usual. There won’t be any yellow stains left!
7. 🛋 Clean and disinfect the fabric upholstery
The fabric chairs in my kitchen get dirty very quickly and accumulate some hard-to-remove disgusting stains. The best way to get rid of it is to mix ½ cups of Dawn soap with 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and spray it over the upholstery. With a cloth, rub it thoroughly.
8. 🔪 Cutting boards disinfectant
I’m sure you know that cutting boards need to be disinfected periodically, don’t you? Every time you use the board to cut meat, apply hydrogen peroxide over it and let it act for five minutes. Rinse it with cold water and let it dry. There is now no trace of bacteria on your cutting board!
