Everyday Cheapskate: Amazing Ways to Use Hydrogen Peroxide Around the House

Mary Hunt on

Last week, I heard from one of my readers who wrote about hydrogen peroxide -- something I've written about in the past but not so much in the context of this reader's personal report.

I loved her story and outcome but needed to confirm that hydrogen peroxide is safe, reasonable and recommended as a mouthwash.

In the process, I ran into a whole lot more than I was looking for: multiple uses for hydrogen peroxide around the house -- some new, some not so new but perhaps forgotten.


Clean your counters and tabletops with hydrogen 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.



After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour hydrogen peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved hydrogen peroxide as a sanitizer.


Mix salt, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to make a paste for brushing your teeth. Not only will this help reverse the early stages of gingivitis but if used regularly, it will also remove stains and whiten your teeth.
