Hydrogen peroxide is extremely useful when dealing with household chores, being able to clean and disinfect different useful items, from mattresses to your toothbrush. Here is a list of hydrogen peroxide’s strenghts:

1. Best way to clean the mattress

Stains on the mattress? Better said blood stains on the mattress? Not anymore! Prepare a mixture of 2 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part of Dawn dish soap and pour it in a spray bottle. Spray it over the mattress and rub the stubborn stains. They will be vanished in seconds!

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! Check out the following homemade stain remover:

3. Disinfect your toothbrush

You should disinfect your toothbrush periodically, and the following hydrogen peroxide tip is the best way to do it:
