As I’ve mentioned before, I’m big fan of DIY non-toxic cleaning products. It’s a better choice for your health and the environment—plus it saves money, too!
One of my go-to products is Essential Oxygen Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. Unlike other varieties of hydrogen peroxide—like the kind you find in brown bottles at the drugstore—it doesn’t contain toxic additives or heavy metals.
This is a great one-stop shop cleaner. I use to disinfect almost anything—even food! It cleans everything from cuts and scrapes (dab it on with a cotton ball) to cleaning vegetables (fill a sink or bowl with water and add 3 oz. of hydrogen peroxide) and laundry (add 3 oz. to each washer load) and baby gear (spray it on, wipe it off). You can also soak nuts and grains in it (soak in a dilution for 1-24 hours) to activate and clean.
At the first sign of a sore throat, I gargle with 1/3 oz. of hydrogen peroxide to ward off an infection. And you can also sanitize your toothbrush with it by soaking bristles in it overnight.
