Hydrogen Peroxide Uses

Big Multi Usage Product for Preppers

After reading this I started using Hydrogen Peroxide to get rid of armpit stains, to clean cookie sheets, as a miracle cleaner in my kitchen and bathroom, and to make my own “oxi clean”…I ALWAYS have at least one bottle of the stuff under my kitchen sink, under my bathroom sink, AND in the laundry room. This stuff is amazingly versatile!

But it wasn’t until recently, after doing some IN DEPTH research on the subject, that I came to realize what a “miracle substance” hydrogen peroxide really is! It’s safe, it’s readily available, it’s cheap, and best of all, it WORKS! It works for a LOT of stuff!

Hydrogen peroxide should really be called oxygen water, since it is basically the same chemical make up as water but with an extra oxygen atom (H2O2). Because of this it breaks down quickly and harmlessly into oxygen and water.

Some other interesting facts about hydrogen peroxide:

It is found in all living material.

Your white blood cells naturally produce hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to fight bacteria and infections.

Fruit and vegetables naturally produce hydrogen peroxide. This is one of the reasons why it is so healthy to eat fresh fruit and vegetables.

It is found in massive dosages in the mother’s first milk, called colostrum, and is transferred to the baby to boost their immune system.

It is found in rain water because some of the H20 in the atmosphere receives an additional oxygen atom from the ozone (O3) and this H2O2 makes plants grow faster.

Next to Apple Cider Vinegar, hydrogen peroxide ranks up there as one of the best household remedies.

Besides the obvious (cleansing wounds), did you know that it is probably the best remedy to dissolve ear wax? Brighten dingy floors? Add natural highlights to your hair? Improve your plants root systems? The list goes on and on!

There are SO many uses for this stuff that I’ve started replacing the cap on the hydrogen peroxide bottle with a sprayer because it’s easier and faster to use that way.

An Impressive List of Uses for Impressive List of Uses for 3% Hydrogen Peroxide:

Wash vegetables and fruits with hydrogen peroxide to remove dirt and pesticides. Add 1/4 cup of H2O2 to a sink of cold water. After washing, rinse thoroughly with cool water.

In the dishwasher, add 2 oz. to your regular detergent for a sanitizing boost. Also, beef up your regular dish soap by adding roughly 2 ounces of 3% H2O2 to the bottle.

Use hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash to freshen breath. It kills the bacteria that causes halitosis. Use a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water.

Use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to make a paste for brushing teeth. Helps with early stages of gingivitis as it kills bacteria. Mixed with salt and baking soda, hydrogen peroxide works as a whitening toothpaste.

Soak your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide between uses to keep it clean and prevent the transfer of germs. This is particularly helpful when you or someone in your family has a cold or the flu.

Clean your cutting board and counter top. Let everything bubble for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse clean. (I’ve been using it for this a LOT lately!)

Wipe out your refrigerator and dishwasher. Because it’s non-toxic, it’s great for cleaning places that store food and dishes.

Clean your sponges. Soak them for 10 minutes in a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and warm water in a shallow dish. Rinse the sponges thoroughly afterward.

Remove baked-on crud from pots and pans. Combine hydrogen peroxide with enough baking soda to make a paste, then rub onto the dirty pan and let it sit for a while. Come back later with a scrubby sponge and some warm water, and the baked-on stains will lift right off.

Whiten bathtub grout. First dry the tub thoroughly, then spray it liberally with hydrogen peroxide. Let it sit — it may bubble slightly — for a little while, then come back and scrub the grout with an old toothbrush. You may have to repeat the process a few times.

Clean the toilet bowl. Pour half a cup of hydrogen peroxide into the toilet bowl, let stand for 20 minutes, then scrub clean.

Remove stains from clothing, curtains, and tablecloths. Hydrogen peroxide can be used as a pre-treater for stains — just soak the stain for a little while in 3% hydrogen peroxide before tossing into the laundry. You can also add a cup of peroxide to a regular load of whites to boost brightness. It’s a green alternative to bleach, and works just as well.

Brighten dingy floors. Combine half a cup of hydrogen peroxide with one gallon of hot water, then go to town on your flooring. Because it’s so mild, it’s safe for any floor type, and there’s no need to rinse.

Clean kids’ toys and play areas. Hydrogen peroxide is a safe cleaner to use around kids, or anyone with respiratory problems, because it’s not a lung irritant. Spray toys, toy boxes, doorknobs, and anything else your kids touch on a regular basis.

Help out your plants. To ward off fungus, add a little hydrogen peroxide to your spray bottle the next time you’re spritzing plants.

Add natural highlights to your hair. Dilute the hydrogen peroxide so the solution is 50% peroxide and 50% water. Spray the solution on wet hair to create subtle, natural highlights.

According to alternative therapy practitioners, adding half a bottle of hydrogen peroxide to a warm bath can help detoxify the body. Some are skeptical of this claim, but a bath is always a nice way to relax and the addition of hydrogen peroxide will leave you – and the tub – squeaky clean!

Spray a solution of 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide on leftover salad, drain, cover and refrigerate. This will prevent wilting and better preserve your salad.

Sanitize your kids’ lunch boxes/bags.

Dab hydrogen peroxide on pimples or acne to help clear skin.

Hydrogen peroxide helps to sprout seeds for new plantings. Use a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution once a day and spritz the seed every time you re-moisten. You can also use a mixture of 1 part hydrogen peroxide to 32 parts water to improve your plants’ root system.

Remove yellowing from lace curtains or tablecloths. Fill a sink with cold water and a 2 cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least an hour, rinse in cold water and air dry.

Use it to remove ear wax. Use a solution of 3% with olive or almond oil. Add a couple drops of oil first then H2O2. After a few minutes, tilt head to remove solution and wax.

Helps with foot fungus. Spray a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry. Or try soaking your feet in a peroxide solution to help soften calluses and corns, and disinfect minor cuts.

Spray down the shower with hydrogen peroxide to kill bacteria and viruses.

Use 1 pint of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a gallon of water to clean humidifiers and steamers.

Wash shower curtains with hydrogen peroxide to remove mildew and soap scum. Place curtains in machine with a bath towel and your regular detergent. Add 1 cup full strength 3% hydrogen peroxide to the rinse cycle.

Use for towels that have become musty smelling. 1/2 cup Peroxide and 1/2 cup vinegar let stand for 15 minutes wash as normal. Gets rid of the smell.

Use hydrogen peroxide to control fungi present in aquariums. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt your fish. Use sparingly for this purpose.

De-skunking solution. Combine 1 quart 3% H2O2, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 teaspoon Dawn dish detergent, 2 quarts warm water.

Notes from a Tim Woolf Fireside

Tim Woolf is a Survival and Emergency Preparedness Expert

CLEAN WATER:

In the Honduras hurricane a few years ago, 9,000 people were killed. In the 5 weeks following the hurricane, 35,000 people died from bad water alone.

  • minimum of 14 gallons per person for 2 weeks is required and this is WAY too little! The body metabolism changes after a quake or disaster and you will need more to drink.
  • 14 gallons per week does not cover anything but drinking water. You will not be brushing your teeth or washing you hands with such a small amount.
  • You must use NEW containers. Plastic absorbs whatever was in it first and it will leach into your water. The preference is the blue water containers to control the growth of algae, which results from light.
    • Algae is green, but isn’t harmful, just unsightly. Green cool-aid will disguise it.
  • Rotate the water every year.
  • Do not store water containers on concrete floors or near anything like gas, paint, etc. as it will pick up the taste and could be harmful.
  • Any unclean water will need to be cleaned.
  • Methods suggested have been: Boil, filter, iodine, Clorox.
    • Boil: 22 minutes at full rolling boil. Requires a lot of fuel for fire.
    • Filter: Too slow for large quantities. Iodine: Now hard to get because of illegal substances being produced with it. Thus it is illegal to have a large amount.
    • Clorox: 72 year old technology. It was the only source of chlorine on the market for many years. 1 year from manufacture date all the chlorine has evaporated and is gone through the plastic. At 6 months old 75% of the chlorine is gone.
    • Best Plan: powdered chlorine found at a spa store. The kind used for swimming pools. Must be high concentrate (97% or more) with very little other ingredients. It takes 24 hours to work. Use about 1/8 teaspoon per 55 gallons. 14 teaspoon if real dirty water is used. Get the chlorine test kit and if there is free floating chlorine after 24 hours, then the water is clean to drink. To eliminate the chlorine taste, leave the lid off of the container for 24 hours and the chlorine taste will dissipate.

There is an instrument called a MSR (MIRX – Mirox) used by the military for water purification. It is about $150.00

WaterBob Application

We, Colony 6, are going to offer a group buy on these amazing perpetual light sources.  I need to nail down the discount on them and then we’re ready to buy, buy, buy!  But, in the meantime, get familiar with them below:

UVPaqlite- The Amazing Light- No Batteries, No Bulbs, Use it FOREVER!!!

Picture  

What are UVPaqlites?
The UVPaqlites are designed to give the user a form of light that has utility beyond typical glow-in-the-dark novelty products. The Paqlites are reusable, portable, waterproof, and require no maintenance. When exposed to any other type of light: sunlight, LED lights, Flashlights, blacklights, etc. the Paqlites will glow all night long and even for days. They provide enough light to function in dark environments without using batteries, fuel, or energy.

What makes UVPaqlites glow?
The Patent Pending technology provides a new way to capture the glowing photons, which are produced via crystal manufacturing from the earth’s resources of strontium, aluminum and other rare earth elements.  When exposed to other light sources the crystals quickly absorb the light, store it, and then produce enough light to continue glowing for hours or days. Paqlite glow lights are environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

How long will the UVPaqlites last?
The UVPaqlites will last forever! The UVpaqlites, unlike traditional lights, do not require batteries, bulbs, or chemical activation (shaking or breaking) therefore you can reuse them over-and-over again. These glow-in-the-dark lights do not have a shelf-life so you can store them anywhere in case of an emergency.

Where can I use the UVPaqlite?
 Use these glow-in-the-dark lights as a night light, as a back up light in other dark spaces (basements, sheds, garages, etc), or hang them in a tent, RV, cabin, or gulf stream private jet. Our glow lights are so versatile customers are coming up with new uses everyday!

Tooblite – Reusable Glow Sticks

Picture

What is a Tooblite?

The Tooblite is a  reusable glow stick.

What makes the Tooblite  reusable?

The Tooblite absorbs lights (similar to glow-in-the-dark), so it  can be recharged from any light source including: sunlight, LEDs, black lights,  ambient light, household bulbs, etc. If it is bright enough for you to see the  Tooblite is absorbing light. So even on a cloudy overcast day it is absorbing the UV rays.

What is inside the  Tooblite?

The Tooblite is filled with glow-in-the-dark  crystals,made from strontium aluminate. These crystals are suspended in a solid  epoxy so it is durable.

How many times can it  be recharged?

The Tooblite can be recharged over and over again forever. It never loses its ability to recharge and it will never expire. That’s what makes it great for emergency kits, bug out bags, or 72 kits. You don’t  have to worry about expiration dates.

How long will the  Tooblite glow?

The Tooblite will glow ALL night long (+8hrs). The Tooblite uses supercharged glow-in-the-dark so the light diminshes over a 4 day period. For example:  If you left a Tooblite in a dark cave for 4 days, you would still be able to see it glowing with your eyes fully adjusted to the dark. It would be very dim but you could identify it.

What makes the Tooblite different from tradtional glow sticks?

Traditional  glow sticks are one time use products that require users to activate the light by shaking or breaking the tube. Traditional glow sticks utilize a chemical reaction whereas our Tooblite uses photoluminescence (glow-in-the-dark).  We use enhanced glow-in-the-dark technology that is why our product is bright enough to be a light source all night long. Some traditional glow sticks may intialally be brighter than the Tooblite, but the Tooblite will out last those products because it can be reused/recharged over-and-over again FOREVER.

GIDS (Glow In the Dark Spots)

GIDS are the newest creation from the UVPaqlite family, these Glow In the Dark Spots make finding items in the dark easy. Using the best glow in the dark technology, GIDS are fun to stick anywhere. They are 1.25″ in diameter making them small enough to stick on remote controls, light switches, down dark hallways, but bright enough to enhance night time visibility on bike helmets, backpacks, & clothing.

Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/034381_Tennessee_cannery_stored_food.html#ixzz1i8OjJNS3(NaturalNews) Citizens in Tennessee are being asked by government workers to divulge details about their preparedness plans in a door-to-door “assessment” program reported by Janet Kim from local news channel 5 (http://www.newschannel5.com/story/1…). During this assessment, government workers ask residents 22 questions about their preparedness status. NaturalNews has confirmed through reliable sources that these include questions about emergency food supplies.

Fortunately, this effort is being done by a Tennessee group of state employees who are widely recognized throughout the preparedness community as being “good guys” who are truly just trying to help people get prepared. They are not interested in confiscation or anything of the kind, according to our sources. It’s a local community preparedness support effort.

On another front, three days ago Oath Keepers reported that their chapter president in Tennessee was told by a local cannery federal agents were demanding customer lists (http://www.naturalnews.com/034371_f…). This account quickly went viral across alternative news websites, and the news exploded across the ‘net.

The Tennessee cannery that originally relayed that account to Oath Keepers has backed off their account and is now telling customers who call that federal agents never visited their cannery. Oath Keepers has posted an update confirming this (http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2011/12…).

The change in this first-hand account has many people scratching their heads, as this story was confirmed face-to-face by none other than Oath Keepers Tennessee Chapter President Sgt. Rand Cardwell, a USMC veteran (Desert Storm) with a solid reputation. There is virtually no possibility that Sgt. Rand Cardwell invented this story, as he is widely known to be a trustworthy individual who honorably served his country as a U.S. Marine.

A far more likely explanation may be found in the Patriot Act itself, which features a sneak-and-peek with a gag order provision that allows federal agents to conduct searches of any facility and then gag the witnesses from speaking about it for at least one year, after which they may challenge the gag order. The existence of this sneak-and-peek gag order is widely acknowledged and easily verified through common web searches. Even NPR reported on it several years ago: http://www.npr.org/news/specials/pa…

Another possibility is that the original source at the Tennessee cannery may have been instructed to remain silent by higher ups either within their own organization or, theoretically, the Mormon Church with which the cannery is affiliated. This is only speculation, of course. We no longer have access to any further fact-checking because nobody from that cannery is talking. NaturalNews has long admired the preparedness philosophy of the Mormon Church and its members, most of which are far better prepared for an economic collapse than people of any other organized religion.

Who is getting prepared? The smart folks

The bottom line is that government officials are taking a curious interest all of a sudden in the preparedness status of the American people. Whether for innocent reasons or for nefarious purposes, this is a new focus of both state and federal government, and it indicates that somebody up the chain of command is very interested in knowing WHO is preparing and HOW they’re getting prepared.

My advice to NaturalNews readers is to connect with a Mormon cannery in your area and help support their operations. Such canneries frequently offer food storage skills and advice, in addition to offering you quality stored goods at affordable prices. Most Mormon-run canneries graciously open their doors to people of any religious denomination, and for that they deserve tremendous credit.

NaturalNews will continue to investigate this story and bring you any important developments. In the mean time, we encourage all our readers, in Tennessee and elsewhere, to get yourself prepared for what’s coming. Because there will very likely come a day when the federal government begins to look at stored food, cash, and ammunition as “signs of terrorism.” The government already flags people who “pay with cash” as being engaged in suspicious activity — just try to buy an airplane ticket with cash and see what happens if you don’t believe me. Similarly, those who buy quantities of firearms are already being flagged and tracked by the ATF. The federal government runs elaborate infiltration and spying schemes to ensnare raw milk farmers (http://www.naturalnews.com/033428_F…).

For that same government to start asking questions about who has stored food isn’t even a stretch. It fits their pattern of spying on their own people even as the government tries to encroach upon more freedoms we all once took for granted.

Stay prepared, folks. The economic tsunami is headed our way, and there’s a whole lotta paper currency that may end up being worth no more than the paper it’s printed on. For now, I think it’s safe to purchase stored food without drawing too much attention to yourself, but you’ll probably get a much better value if you buy it locally from regional canneries where you don’t have to pay the large shipping costs.

Do I have 5-gallon buckets full of spelt and brown rice? You bet I do. And I got ‘em from a Mormon cannery in Idaho.

Growing and Heating in a Greenhouse

December 14, 2011 3:26 pm | No Comments

I live in Northern Utah so our days are really short this time of year. I just started seed again a few weeks ago, and I simulate longer warmer days for these new seedings from germination till about 3 weeks.
To do this, I put a 4′ flourescent light almost touching the flat. This flat has a clear plastic dome over it, to keep the heat in and let the light in.
Flourescent lighting gives off a little heat, but I heat my greenhouse by using roofing cables that are used for melting snow on the edge of the roof.
I run them back and forth under the beds and put them on a timer to come on about 5pm and go off about 8am. They are waterproof and use very little energy. They could be hooked up to a solar panel.
If I am expecting it to be below 10 degrees, I will put a little radiator type heater in the greenhouse, on a timer to come on when the sun goes down.
If it is going to be below zero and windy, I will cover the plants with a layer of bubblewrap or 6 mil plastic as another barrier. I haven’t had to do this very often though. You could just use the second layer if you don’t have a really cold climate, without additional heat. Greenhouses and plants,collect heat in the day, and use it in the night to stay warm.
The North wall of my greenhouse has insulation foam to help keep the heat in also.
This has worked really well for the past few years.

100% Homegrown

In the pursuit of providing a self sufficient lifestyle in these troubled times, we have so many options that we don’t think we are capable of, but are really quite easy if you take one step at a time.

I always thought gardening started on my last freeze date in May, but I have come to learn that if I prepare a little in the fall, and even through the winter, we can eat out of our garden, cold frames and small greenhouse year round providing enough nutritious, organically grown food for three or more families depending on the time of year.

One thing I do is till and prepare a couple of rows for planting in the fall, then I cover the bed with grass clippings and leave it till spring.

The beauty of these beds is that if we have a really wet spring, where it is too muddy to get in and walk or dig, I can still hand trowel a little hole and put in lettuce and spinach starts and peas. All of which love cool wet weather.

I have greens in a month, even when there is still snow coming every once in a while.

Story at a Glance – Flouridation

December 3, 2011 8:29 am | No Comments

  • In the past 13 months, 31 communities in Canada (10), New Zealand (2) and the U.S. (19) have voted to stop fluoridating their water supplies. The total number of people freed from forced fluoridaiton in this period is over 2.5 million. Meanwhile, councilors are pushing for the discontinuation of fluoridation in New York City.
  • Fluoride is a toxic drug. Fluoridating water is reckless, as you cannot control the dose ingested, or who receives it, and there’s no medical supervision. Water fluoridation clearly violates the individual’s right to informed consent to medicine
  • The Fluoride Action Network (FAN) urges communities to pressure local water departments to place a warning on the water bill, stating that parents should not use fluoridated water to mix baby formula. Other action items are also specified
  • There are now 25 studies showing that fluoride is associated with IQ reduction, even at fluoride levels as low as 0.3 to 3 parts per million, which overlaps the range in many American communities (0.7 to 1.2 ppm). FAN argues that it is reckless to expose a baby to up to 300 times more fluoride than present in mothers’ milk (0.004 ppm).
