Prepping with Hydrogen Peroxide
hydrogen peroxide uses - just for preppers

Dozens of practical reasons preppers use hydrogen peroxide...
Wondering why preppers stockpile hydrogen peroxide? Hydrogen
peroxide has an impressive list of household and medicinal uses,
which is why preppers find it a practical addition to their supplies.

Here are some uses of hydrogen peroxide that we bet you didn't
know!

  • Hydrogen peroxide had an important role in Word War
    II: special hydrogen peroxide solutions were fuel for
    torpedoes and rockets.

Preppers who wish to reduce their toxic load of cleaning agents,
can turn to hydrogen peroxide as a non-toxic solution to
hundreds of household cleaners and personal care products,
including reduction of phosphates,
bleach, ammonia and
petroleum products.

Reasons Preppers Store Hydrogen Peroxide
There are dozens of practical reasons for preppers to use
hydrogen peroxide...

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
right.

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 is 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.

  1. 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.

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.

Reason #4: Hydrogen Peroxide cleans your toothbrush.
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.
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 blemishes.
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: Prevent 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 article:
  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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
