Cleaning With Hydrogen Peroxide
A few tips before you get started using hydrogen peroxide to do your cleaning.
- You can use just about any hydrogen peroxide you buy in the store. I buy it when it is on sale at Meijer.
- Make sure you keep your hydrogen peroxide in a dark bottle. It can break down with sunlight.
- Also, hydrogen peroxide can sometimes discolor items. It is always best to test in a small area before you use it.

I've never used hydrogen peroxide. I didn't know it had so many uses.
Donna Brunet says
I have an even easier way to clean stains on mattresses. Spray full strength on the stain and let dry. Seriously. No scrubbing necessary.
I will have to try that next time. Thanks!

I use hydrogen peroxide for everything! Maybe too many things, actually. One time we had to use it on our dog because they swallowed something dangerous that needed to get out immediately. It's a tactic used in case you need to get your dog to throw up ASAP. She swallowed gum that had xylitol in it (boyfriend didn't know there was that ingredient in the gum) and had it laying around. 🙁

I had 5 babies at home and the midwife always instructed me to buy peroxide. I lifts blood stains out of rugs and mattresses, tout suite! Amazing.
Spray full strength hydrogen peroxide on blood stains, they disappear like magic, you may have to repeat process if heavily stained.
