Uses for Peroxide

Note: The following are not recommentations.
I received this information in an email.
It is posted here for interest only.
These suggestions have not been tested in the Printlace household.
I do remind you, however, that peroxide is used to lighten hair.
I would be very careful how and where I used peroxide.
I am adding a personal note at the end.

"This was written by Becky Ransey of Indiana (a doctor's wife), and
I want to share it with you. She was over recently for coffee and
smelled the bleach I was using to clean my toilet and countertops.
This is what she told me...

I would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little ole
bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug
store. What does bleach cost?

My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, and
most doctors don't tell you about peroxide. Have you ever smelled
bleach in a doctor's office? NO!!! Why? Because it smells, and it
is not healthy! Ask the nurses who work in the doctor's offices,
and ask them if they use bleach at home. They are wiser and know

Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40's? It's
chlorine, Folks! And it was used to kill our troops. Peroxide was
invented during WWI in the 20's. It was used to save and help
cleanse the needs of our troops and hospitals. Please think about this.

1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the
bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it
out. (I do it when I bathe.) No more canker sores, and your teeth
will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.

2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them
free of germs.

3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs
and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when
you wipe, or spray it on the counters.

4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it
to kill salmonella and other bacteria.

5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50
mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every
night and let dry.

6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten
minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that
would not heal with any medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide.

7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water
and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your
septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.

8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50
mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and
help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow
your nose into a tissue.

9 If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist
right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it
for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

10. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray
the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it
through You will not have the peroxide-burnt blonde hair like the
hair dye packages but more natural highlights if your hair is a
light brown, reddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually,
so it's not a drastic change.

11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils,
fungus, or other skin infections.

12. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load
of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on
clothing, pour it directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a
minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

13. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing, which
is why I love it so much for this.

I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be
without! With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a
way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner!

This information really woke me up. I hope you gain something from it, 

Printlace Note
I remember, as a child, having a nasty bike fall.
My elbow was scraped on a gravel street and small particals of rock were in the wound.
My mother used peroxide to "boil" out the dirt and possible infection."
