5 Clever Uses for Hydrogen Peroxide in your Stephenville Home

Back to Real Estate News

Chances are, you don’t reach for a bottle of hydrogen peroxide when you set out to clean your Stephenville home. But perhaps, you should! This tried and true mother’s helper makes cleaning your home a breeze! Here are 5 ways you can put the brown bottle to good use!

  1. Clean your Cutting Boards and Countertops: Porous surfaces are no match for hydrogen peroxide’s fierce bubbles. Just like it can clean a wound, it can also clean your cutting boards and countertops. Use it from an opaque spray bottle by spraying down these items and allowing it to bubble-up for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse clean.
  2. Sponges: Did you know your sponge is one of the dirtiest items in your Stephenville home? Soak them in a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and warm water for 10 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly after.
  3. Whiten Bathtub Grout: Yellowed bathroom grout can make even the cleanest bathrooms look dingy. Try this! Dry your tub and then spray it down with your spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide. Allow it to sit and then scrub the grout with an old toothbrush. Bye bye yellow grout!
  4. Remove Stains from Clothing: Hydrogen peroxide is amazing when used as a pre-treater for stains. You can soak clothes in hydrogen peroxide for awhile before tossing into the laundry, or just add a cup of peroxide to your regular load of whites to boost brightness. It’s an eco-friendly alternative to bleach that works just as well
  5. Help out your Plants: Spray down your plants with hydrogen peroxide to ward off fungus.
