Hydrogen Peroxide For Cleaning & Household Uses

Hydrogen Peroxide is a non- toxic multi-purpose item you should always have in your house. It is good for using in the kitchen, garden, household cleaning, and also for your first aid kit.

Hydrogen peroxide needs to always be kept in a dark bottle, as exposure to light will make it less effective. Also, avoid using it with other liquids, as that is another way to make hydrogen peroxide ineffective.


There are different types of hydrogen peroxide for different purposes. There is the food grade hydrogen peroxide that can be used for kitchen purposes. The regular hydrogen peroxide in the brown bottle that you buy at the local grocery store is the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. This one is safe to use in your household, as it is highly diluted and won’t be harmful.

For cleaning and killing germs, you might want to use Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide. Chemists have combined hydrogen peroxide with additional synergistic chemicals to make this type of hydrogen peroxide a formula that will eliminate germs.



It’s always best to use a non- toxic cleaning agent for cleaning your countertops. Hydrogen peroxide will do a great job of cleaning your countertops. But do use the food grade hydrogen peroxide when cleaning kitchen surfaces, tables and counters.
