Moms love hydrogen peroxide. Here are 50 uses everyone ought to know

Fight Bad Breath

Brushing your teeth swishing with minty mouthwash won’t always help get rid of bad breath. Hydrogen peroxide, on the other hand, helps get to the root of the problem by killing the germs that cause bad breath.

Make sure to use what’s known as “food grade” hydrogen peroxide when you put anything in your mouth!

Whiten Teeth

Want whiter teeth without having to buy expensive whitening strips? Well, one side benefits of using hydrogen peroxide to kill bad breath germs is whiter teeth! The peroxide acts like a bleaching agent, so don’t be shy about using it as both a mouthwash and tooth brightener.

Again, be sure to only use FOOD GRADE hydrogen peroxide, which can be found online, for anything you take in orally.

DIY Toothpaste

If you don’t like using commercial toothpaste and all the unnatural ingredients that come with it, then DIY it! Make a natural paste by mixing together baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and coconut oil.

Sanitize Your Toothbrush

Hydrogen peroxide is great for sanitizing your toothbrush or retainer. It’s easy to just quickly rinse it in hydrogen peroxide between brushings.

Sterilize Makeup Brushes

Makeup brushes are a haven for bacteria, and you should already be washing them once a week with soap and water. To help disinfect them even further, soak the brushes in a bowl of water that has a teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide added to it.

Banish That Toothache

The pain from a really bad toothache can bring a grown man down to his knees! If pain over the counter pain relievers aren’t doing the trick, try swishing your mouth with hydrogen peroxide. Be sure to hold it in your mouth for a few minutes to help kill the bacteria before you spit it out.
