Did you know, Hydrogen Peroxide is a wonder product that has an incredible variety of cleaning uses. Check through our top 10 below and learn how powerful hydrogen peroxide really is …
1. Remove Pit Stains
Let’s face it, brownish-yellow armpit stains are embarrassing. And aggravating, especially if they develop on a fairly new garment. Erase them by creating a solution of one part dishwashing liquid and two parts hydrogen peroxide, then applying it to the stain for about an hour. Wash in cold water, then dry and wear. Note: A tough stain may also require scrubbing with baking soda.
2. Grow Mushrooms
It’s crazy, but true. Hydrogen peroxide — the 35 percent version — helps combat mold infections that can ruin ‘shrooms. Apply a few drops to fruiting chambers (where mushrooms grow) to instantly add oxygen.
3. Clean the dishwasher
Use hydrogen peroxide to clean out your dishwasher. You can spray hydrogen peroxide directly into the appliance, let sit a bit, then wipe out. Or you can create a cleaning “bomb” with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and an essential oil. Mix them and use an ice cream scoop to scoop out round balls. Let them dry overnight. To use, place the bomb at the bottom of the dishwasher. Then mix white vinegar and liquid dish-washing detergent in a glass or ceramic bowl and place in the top of the dishwasher. When you run a cycle with the bomb (along with vinegar and detergent), the peroxide will whiten and clean the appliance while the baking soda scrubs it and the oil provides a fresh scent.
4. Whiten Almost Anything, from Fingernails to Grout.
Hydrogen peroxide is great at whitening and brightening many items, such as stained tiles, dirty grout and even fingernails. For the latter, combine one part hydrogen peroxide with two parts baking soda and rub the paste on your nails. Let sit for two or three minutes, then rinse away. Voilà! Gorgeous, white nails. For whitening grout, either pour the hydrogen peroxide straight on to the tile or make a paste with baking soda and scrub away.
5. Make a Mouthwash
Hydrogen peroxide is especially great for dental hygiene. Use it as a mouthwash to kill germs, making sure to dilute first (half water, half hydrogen peroxide), then swish in your mouth for one minute and spit out. Never swallow! An added benefit of this mouthwash: It’ll whiten your teeth. You can also use it to disinfect and clean your toothbrush and any dental appliances, such as retainers and mouth guards.
6. Boost your Laundry
No need to buy those expensive commercial laundry products that have the words “oxy” in them and promise to whiten your clothes. Simply add a cup of hydrogen peroxide to your washing machine when doing a load of whites. The hydrogen peroxide will also deodorize clothes and remove stains. You can pour it directly on stains but do a color-fast test first if you’re applying to darker clothes.
7. Kill Mold and Mildew
As we noted earlier, hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria, but it also dispatches fungi such as mold and mildew. So grab a spray bottle of hydrogen and spray your bathroom fixtures, floors, walls, humidifier, dehumidifier, even your shower curtain. That fizzy sound will tell you it’s working.
8. Grow your Garden
Gardeners know one of the best substances for their plants is hydrogen peroxide. The all-purpose liquid can help with pest control, prevent infection on damaged trees, kill foliage fungus and combat root rot, as well as improve plant growth. That extra oxygen causes the roots to absorb more nutrients. For pest control or growth, add one teaspoon to one cup of water in a spray bottle and mist the plant. To combat root rot or fungal infections, use one tablespoon per cup of water.
9. Keep Food Fresher
Spraying salad greens with a little H2O2, then returning them to the fridge, will thwart sogginess for several days. Fruits and veggies also can be spritzed or bathed in a hydrogen peroxide solution to keep them fresher longer. Just be sure to rinse them thoroughly before eating.
10. Keep those Nails Sparkly Clean
Hydrogen peroxide can be used to treat fungal nail infection. Take time out of your day and soak your feet in a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water. This will help you to relax and at the same time treat fungal nail infection. Patience is required with this treatment as it can take time to work.

Spoke to Vicky at Safesol, she was very knowledgeable. I placed the order and paid online and the items arrived within the timescale advised. Simple and efficient.
Mixed with baking soda and made a paste to freshen up bathroom grouting. Now have some in a spray bottle as a safe multipurpose cleaner.
Last year used Grow Up on one side of my garden - just watered the other side. The difference was plain to see. The flowers and bedding plants that had received 'Grow Up' were significantly bigger and seemed healthier than those that hadn't. I shall certainly be using it this year on all of my garden. Fantastic product with impressive results.
We use this product about 10 times a day as we have a small disabled mostly incontinent dog. If she pees on the mat, a mop with kitchen roll and a squirt of SweetPee saves us having to wash the mats so frequently as it removes the smell. Have used it for just over 2 years now and its brilliant.
Have paid a lot out and no matter what I did the over riding smell was urine. Not any more.whole house smells fresh.amaysing bottled miracle. V.vardy.
Always great service and comprehensive support from the team at Safesol.
Simply, does what it says on the tin. excellent product, no hesitation in recommending.
