CLOROX vs PEROXIDE


 

Clorox vs Peroxide VERY interesting and inexpensive. 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 counter tops. 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 better!
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 get
> rid of 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.
>
> 14. Another place it's great is in the bathroom, if someone
> has been careless& has wet on the floor around the toilet& it's begun
> to smell of urine. Just put some peroxide in a spray bottle& spray. In the
> blink of any eye all the smell will be gone& the bacteria eliminated!
>
> 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, too

Kristin - that extra molecule of oxygen that turns water into rocket fuel certainly works wonders. I have been using peroxide regularly for the last fifty years. With the proliferation of commercial products, we need to be reminded to go back to the basics regularly. Thanks for the timely post.

I've read this before, Kristin, and tried a few of them. Peroxide is a great tool and very cheap.

It's also great for cleaning ears - but feels/sounds really strange.

I met a lady years ago who uses peroxide in her hot tub instead of all those nasty chemicals. It keeps the water clean and is good for cuts, etc. as noted in your post.

Kristin, I've used it in my ears and as a gargle too, The nose cleanse will be a little trickier trying to find the right kind of spritzer.  Anything to lessen chlorine in our waste water is a good thing.

Kristin-This is wonderful info. I had never heard about this. Chlorine is so strong. I use it in the bathroom because of Mom's accidents but I think I will try the peroxide.

My parents used it for cleaning and many other things  too:)

Now we have a lot of companies who offer a lot of staff~ in reality you can use old good peroxide for so many things:)

I even remember we bleached our hair with it~ haha~:)
