Bye-bye cleaning services! Who said that hydrogen peroxide is used only for disinfecting cuts and scrapes? I used it successfully when I do the cleaning, especially when I deal with stubborn stains that just don’t wanna come out of fabric surfaces!
Nevertheless, hydrogen peroxide is used in removing and cleaning many other things, that’s why I created a list with all hydrogen peroxide cleaning tips that you’ll definitely love, because it’s extremely useful in your household chores.
1. Best way to clean the mattress
Stains on the mattress? Better said blood stains on the mattress? Not anymore if you prepare a mixture of 2 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part of Dawn dish soap and pour it in a spray bottle. The last step is to spray it over the mattress and insist on the stubborn stains.
2. A pinch of bleach
Why buying stain remover products when you can easily prepare your own at home. At least that’s what I’m doing for years! Just buy a dish detergent brush and pour in it the following homemade stain remover:
– 2 tablespoons of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and 2 tablespoons of Dawn dish soap and mix it well. By pumping up the brush over the stain, dispense the liquid and scrub it easily.
3. Disinfect your toothbrush
You should disinfect your toothbrush periodically, and the following hydrogen peroxide tip is the best way to do it:
-remove the toothbrush head and place it in a glass then pour hydrogen peroxide over it to cover the bristles. Let it sit for 5 minutes then put the toothbrush head back.
4. No more baked on grease on pots and pans
This one is my champ! I literally hate scrubbing burnt on grease on pots and trays, but this little hydrogen peroxide trick saved me. Mix ½ cup of baking soda with ¼ cup of dish soap and ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide to form a paste and apply it on the pan. Let it stand for a few minutes and then remove it gently along with the burnt on grease.
5. Clean the oven
Bleah! Grease is very difficult to remove and not so funny when it comes to cleaning, because you have to arm yourself with patience unless you use this hydrogen peroxide trick that will this dirty job, not so dirty anymore.
6. Remove mold in 10 minutes
Did you think that mold can be removed successfully only with vinegar? Wrong! Pour 3% concentration of hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and spray it over the moldy area. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then scrub the mold away. Repeat if it’s necessary. This method works wonders if you use it in for shower and tub mold.
7. Get rid of armpit stains
Yellow armpit stains on your white t-shirts? Gross! It will get you uncomfortable every time you want to raise your arms up. To remove them, just mix ½ cup of baking soda with ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1 cup of water and soak the yellow armpit stains in it overnight. In the morning, wash the garment in the washing machine at a normal cycle.
8. Clean and disinfect fabric upholstery
I love fabric chairs in the kitchen, but they get dirty very quickly and accumulate some hard to remove disgusting stains. To remove them, you may want to prepare the next cleaner: ½ cup of Dawn soap with 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide. Add the mixture in a spray bottle and spray it over the upholstery you want to clean, and then rub it thoroughly with a cloth.
9. Cutting boards disinfectant
You already know that cutting boards need to be disinfected otherwise you may get real sick. So, after each meat cut, you better apply hydrogen peroxide over it and let it stand for 5 minutes. Rinse it with cold water and let it dry naturally.
