Hydrogen peroxide uses in prepping
Reason #3: Hydrogen peroxide rinses mouth.
As an oral debriding agent, hydrogen peroxide can aid in removing
phlegm, mucus or other secretions associated with a sore mouth.
Use a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution to rinse your mouth.

When using hydrogen peroxide for oral rinsing, it's best to choose
food-grade hydrogen peroxide.

Reason #4: Hydrogen Peroxide cleans your
The FDA approves using a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide as a
mouthwash, so naturally it's also an effective method to clean
your toothbrush. Hydrogen peroxide with
baking soda is highly
effective as well. Hydrogen peroxide also whitens teeth! An
important consideration, however is not to soak your toothbrush
in hydrogen peroxide as the quality of the product degrades with
light. Just use hydrogen peroxide as a rinse!

Reason #5: Hydrogen peroxide Helps wash produce,
meat and poultry.
Hydrogen Peroxide is a natural sanitizer for your food, but use
food grade product only! Hydrogen peroxide at 30-35% food grade
is effective as a fruit and vegetable bath, as well as a meat
sanitizer and disinfectant. Hydrogen peroxide also helps prevent
mold growth on strawberries.

Reason #6: Hydrogen Peroxide replaces chlorine
bleach as a cleaning agent.
Hydrogen peroxide has an impressive list of household and
medicinal uses, which is why preppers find it a practical addition
to their supplies. Preppers who want to reduce their toxic load of
cleaning agents, can turn to hydrogen peroxide as a non-toxic
solution to hundreds of household cleaners, including reduction of
bleach, ammonia and petroleum products.
Preppers can turn to hydrogen peroxide as a non-toxic solution for
phosphates, bleach, ammonia and petroleum products.  Hydrogen
peroxide can reduce the toxic load of cleaning agents.

Because the oxidizing capacity is so strong, hydrogen peroxide is
as ideal for pools as it is for laundry and everyday household
cleaning. For example:
  • Use hydrogen peroxide to clean cutting boards and
    countertops to kill salmonella and bacteria.
  • Use hydrogen peroxide to clean mold.
  • Clean toilets.

Reason #7: Hydrogen peroxide soothes insect bites.
Hydrogen peroxide helps reduce the itch of mosquito bites when
applied topically.  This method works well in conjunction with
baking soda to create a paste.

Reason #8: Hydrogen peroxide works to heal
Hydrogen peroxide helps gets rid of pimples when applied
topically. Hydrogen Peroxide in a 3% grade, is an acceptable
grade for applying to skin.

Reason #9: Hydrogen peroxide prevents body odor.
Hydrogen peroxide can cleans your arm pits naturally to help you
reduce the toxic load of deodorants. This will also help you save
money! Hydrogen peroxide works to remove bacteria, which is the
real cause of body odor.

Reason #10: Hydrogen peroxide aids plant growth.
Did you know hydrogen peroxide is lurking in rainwater? But this
is not so of tap water! Hydrogen peroxide is in the earth's
atmosphere and waters. This naturally occurring compound occurs
when water and the ozone combine to make hydrogen (H) and
oxygen (O) in its simplest state. Where water is H2O, Hydrogen
peroxide is H2O2. Hydrogen peroxide is beneficial to plants.
Farmers routinely spray diluted hydrogen peroxide to counter the
effects of toxins in the air. Dr. David G. Williams explains also
how you can make an insecticide from hydrogen peroxide.

Reason #11: Hydrogen peroxide helps remove
earwax and helps relieve swimmer's ear.
Pediatricians have recommended small droplets applied by ear
swab to help loosen earwax in children, allowing the wax to
naturally move out of the ear. Ask your physician if this method is
appropriate for you.

Reason #12: Removes fungus from finger rings.
Have an itchy platinum ring? For platinum rings that irritate skin
make a 1/3 solution of hydrogen peroxide and a 2/3 solution of
Braggs vinegar. Let it soak over night in a small bowl. (Set aside
safely away from the kitchen in your medicine cabinet.) In the
morning your ring is sparkling and fungus free.

Hydrogen peroxide can help in many other ways than listed in this
  1. Athletes Feet
  2. Denture and retainer cleaner
  3. Head lice treatment
  4. Teeth whitener
  5. Toothache solution

Hydrogen peroxide, if stored properly, has a long shelf life making
it an ideal product for Preppers to stock; however, even hydrogen
peroxide has an expiration date.

Two kinds of Hydrogen Peroxide
There is talk about Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) and the special
uses preppers have discovered, but there is little talk of an
important distinction of this naturally occurring compound! There
are two kinds of hydrogen peroxide: one is to be used only
externally, while the other is food grade and may be ingested, but
only after dilution. It's important to know the difference! It's also
important to consult with a health professional before using
hydrogen peroxide.

#1: Topical Hydogen Peroxide.
Hydrogen peroxide for topical use guards against infection by
decreasing germs in minor cuts, burns or abrasions. The mix is
typically 3% hydrogen peroxide and 97% water.

#2: Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide.
Know the different kinds of food-grade hydrogen peroxide:
  • Food grade 8% hydrogen peroxide solution is good for
    disinfecting water, a foliar spray, chemical free cleaning and
    bleaching. 8% strength is ideal for oxygen bathing, as a
    natural produce and poultry wash, and for use as a
    mouthwash or ear drops. This oral rinse,

  • Food grade 12% hydrogen peroxide should be diluted with
    water is taken orally as an oxygen therapy regimen, but this
    is a highly controversial therapy, which may cause death!
    Andrew Weil, M.D. on his Web site drweil.com warns that
    "Drinking food grade hydrogen peroxide can cause vomiting,
    severe burns of the throat and stomach, and even death." Dr.
    Weil also writes that "Food grade hydrogen peroxide is more
    than 10 times stronger than the solution approved for use on
    the skin."

  • Why is 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide dangerous? Food
    grade hydrogen peroxide (periodic element H2O2) comes in
    varying strengths and is highly controversial with regards to
    treating diseases. While it's labeled as "food grade" the FDA
    warns of the dangers of consumption. Being that it's food
    grade, one would assume it's fit for human consumption;
    however, it's really a matter of semantics. The definition of
    "food grade" is anything that touches food. One example of a
    food grade hydrogen peroxide use is as a wash for poultry,
    fruits and vegetables.

  • Food Grade 30-35% hydrogen peroxide is dangerous:
    Hydrogen peroxide even a grade of 30% hydrogen peroxide
    will turn your finger white if you touch it and you'd be in
    much pain. At this grade, hydrogen peroxide is a
    disinfectant. It will burn your throat! Do NOT ingest without
    proper dilution and instruction.

Did you know Hydrogen peroxide had an important role in World
War II? Special hydrogen peroxide solutions were fuel for
torpedoes and rockets!

Hydrogen peroxide is useful as an antiseptic first aid treatment, a
cleaning solution, and much, much more. With more than a 101
uses for hydrogen peroxide, you'll find having a bit of extra
around the household or homestead will be useful.

    Peroxide is one of the 99 ways to spend a buck prepping the
    dollar stores. While you can buy hydroen peroxide at the
    dollar stores for use topically, food grade hydrogen peroxide  
    is not available there.

  • Know someone who has cancer? Hydrogen peroxide can
    help. First, hydrogen peroxide can help reduce the toxic load
    of chemicals that a cancer patient experiences. Reducing the
    chemical agents is a large part of cancer treatment; however,
    hydrogen peroxide also can help to oxidize the blood. If you
    know someone who has cancer, lease share this important
    article on natural alternatives on how to survive cancer.

Prepping with Hydrogen Peroxide
There are dozens of hydrogen peroxide uses for survival.

Dozens of practical reasons preppers use hydrogen peroxide...
Wondering why preppers stockpile hydrogen peroxide? Because
it's a multipurpose survival item!

Because hydrogen peroxide is non-toxic and has dozens of uses
as an antiseptic for skin, teeth, and ears it belongs in the
prepper's medicine cabinet. It's also extremely versatile for other
applications, such as cleaning or even helping you get potable
water, so it belongs under the kitchen sink, out in the garage or
gardening shed.

Hydrogen Peroxide Uses in Prepping
There are dozens of practical reasons preppers stockpile hydrogen
peroxide. Below are the reasons that apply to preppers.

Reason #1: Hydrogen peroxide can purify water!
A little known fact about hydrogen peroxide is that it can purify
water. In emergency situations, Hydrogen Peroxide can oxidize
water much the same way farmers use hydrogen peroxide to
purify water for their livestock. Mind the details for using
hydrogen peroxide to purify water! There's a secret to doing it

Here's the secret: you must use 35% food grade hydrogen
peroxide. Often tutorials forget to tell you to use 35% food grade
hydrogen peroxide, which is an extremely important detail to omit!

What's more, the FDA warns that "hydrogen peroxide taken orally
can cause severe gastrointestinal irritation leading to
ulceration..." So beware! Ingesting hydrogen peroxide poses
potentially life-threatening allergic reactions. Anything made from
35% Hydrogen Peroxide is dangerous to ingest. It's highly
corrosive and must be diluted! Avoid contact with eyes and keep
out of reach of children. In case of contact, immediately flush skin
or eyes with plenty of water for 15 minutes.

Reason #2: Topical antiseptic.
Hydrogen peroxide, has multiple medical applications, and is most
notably a household
antiseptic. It is not a true antiseptic;
however, it does aid in cleaning small wounds. Hydrogen peroxide
is also not an antibacterial; however, rubbing alcohol can be used
as an
antibacterial agent.

While a popular household antiseptic even among non-preppers,
hydrogen peroxide is a sure find in the prepper's medicine cabinet
to disinfect small wounds; however, preppers should take care in
use! Even the 3% solution is mildly corrosive.

Use hydrogen peroxide to heal boils. Apply directly to the boil to
help get at the infection.

  • NOTE about use on minor cuts: The reason hydrogen
    peroxide should not be used on more serious scrapes is that
    while hydrogen peroxide cleans the infection, it may also
    damage the healthy tissue and in this way prolong the
    healing. Before using hydrogen peroxide, it's important to
    clean the affected area with soap and water to remove
    debris. Of course hydrogen peroxide is your best alternative
    if there is no access to clean water.
