Hydrogen Peroxide


Hydrogen peroxide is an alternative to chlorine-based bleach that can also be found in products such as mouthwash, hair products and teeth whiteners. You might have a bottle of over-the-counter-strength hydrogen peroxide in your medicine cabinet, since many people use it as an antiseptic as well. It is sometimes used in household cleaning products to help remove or lessen stains and odors. We also sometimes use it in products to make foam, or as a stabilizer to maintain a product as it is exposed to air, light, or heat.
