uses for hydrogen peroxide

Tips and experiments on how to efficiently clean old bones

Important: This is pretty much a summary of all the research I’ve done on the subject and personal experiences from people who dabbled with bone preservation. I’m still experimenting with bone preservation using hydrogen peroxide so I might get things wrong here, I intend on updating this guide with new things I discover, and I more than welcome people with actual knowledge on the subject to correct me or add more tips!
Also if you’re a child pls get an adult to do this and don’t play with chemicals, I don’t have money for a lawsuit.

We’ve all been there. Upon arriving at an excavation site, or while surveying, we sometimes find a cool-looking, out-of-context bone. It’s clearly old (maybe not ancient, but old) and out of context, so it might even be legal to take, depending on your country’s law and your profs mood. Upon picking up your new, maybe-legally acquired bone, you notice it’s grimey af. “fuck”, you say. “how could I POSSIBLY clean it?” you say. “LIKE THIS!” I say, providing you with a short, amateurish guide on How To Pretty Up That Old Bone You Randomly Found™:

Thinking about using the good ol’ chlorine bleach? THINK AGAIN because the bone you’ll recover from a chlorine bleach bath will most likely either become super fragile and crumbly, or come out in a liquid state, and no one likes a mushy, flaccid bone.
Also - keep in mind that what is written here should not be applied to bones that seem fragile and crumbling. Why’d you even pick them up they’re far too fucked to be restored by amateurs like me lol.
Also 2.0 - what is written here should not be applied to fresh roadkill or whatever fucked up freshly decomposing carcass you find outside.

What you should be thinking about using is hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). You can buy H2O2 at any drugstore (3% and 6% concentrates are what is sold in my local store). Avoid using H2O2 that is meant for hair since it has other components in it that can damage the bone.

First, get a toothbrush, prefferably not your own, and brush the bone with some warm (not hot, I repeat, not. hot.) water till you get the dirt out. If the dirt is especially stubborn, sharpen a chop-stick into a shiv and carefuly pry the dirt out. If chopsticks are not available, find another pointy wooden potential prison weapon and avoid using a pointy metal thingy since wood is much softer and has far less chances of damaging the bone. After getting done with the initial dirt touch ups, steal a plastic container (with a lid) from your unsuspecting mother/roomates. Put some gloves on, be responsible and don’t handle H2O2 with your bare hands for the love of god. Put your bone in the stolen container, cover it with hydrogen peroxide and add an equal amount of water. Close the lid, hide the box from your disturbed mother/roomates and wait for about a week. Don’t use a lid that completely seals the container from the outside world, it’ll literally blow the fuck up. Use a slightly loose lid. 

You should leave your morbid witch container be for about a week, but still check up on your bone every other day to see its progress. Higher concentrate hydrogen peroxide has more chances of eating away the bone so keep an eye on it!
It’s been about 48 hours since I soaked the Astragalus I found and so far so good! Will add pics once the whole process is done!

Going back to fresh roadkill and decomposing carcasses: H2O2 does not dissolve soft tissue and flesh, so don’t pick up that shit thinking H2O2 will get rid of it for you. What H2O2 will do to a bone like that is make the soft tissue more loose and easier to remove. It will also sterilize the bone, which is good. 

Now go have fun with your slightly disturbing hobby!

If you were to write a list of first aid products, like hydrogen peroxide for example, that all pet owners should have, what would you include? Also I'm not sure if those are personal pictures of Fernbank but if you ever find yourself in Atlanta I would highly recommend going! -Thank you :)

I would start by telling everyone to throw their hydrogen peroxide in the bin.

While hydrogen peroxide has been traditionally used, because it fizzed and looked dramatic and was assumed to be doing something, it actually damages the animal’s tissues and delays healing. Salty water does as good a job at cleaning a wound, but causes no tissue damage.

The first aid kit I would recommend owners have is really basic. The intent of first aid is only to preserve life or prevent further damage until ongoing medical care can be reached. It’s not a substitute for treatment or seeing a vet.

  • Salt, for salty water
  • Iodine (betadine). when diluted to a weak tea color is non-damaging for healing tissues. Diluted more that 1:50 is safe around eyes.
  • A cone (Elizabethan collar)
  • Saline solution for eye irrigation
  • Gauze swabs
  • Co-plus self adherent bandage, or equivalent brand
  • scissors
  • tweezers
  • nail clippers
  • pair of gloves

That’s basically it. Having a towel, blanket, or something on hand for pet transport is advisable too. Many of these things you can find in a human first aid kit.

But please remember a first aid kit is no substitute for seeking veterinary (or medical) attention. I do not want to see things like this happening.

They were my personal photos from Fernbank Natural History Museum. I greatly enjoyed going, and the Autumn forrest there was beautiful too.

Do you have any tips for a beginner? Beginner as in I just found a dead bird and I have no idea what to do. I already made sure it wasn't protected by state law but..... now what? How do you clean bones? How do you remove skin? What are good places to find dead animals?

hey I got u covered fam

some tips:
- don’t use bleach, use hydrogen peroxide in scrubbing and whitening bones.
- and don’t use gorilla glue.
- know your laws well.
- Home Depot 5 gallon buckets and folgers coffee cans are great for maceration, they keep the smell in very well.
- if you aren’t macerating, (but you’ll probably need to a little, to get the last of the tendons n shit off) be sure to use a rot cage or an old dog kennel.
- always skin and deflesh, decay stew isn’t fun.
- clean and disinfect all your knives and crap anytime they touch a dead, no matter how little they touched it.
- always wear bright orange when going out into the woods. especially if it’s a hunting season, there might be more people out, or the woods are particularly hard to see through.
- keep some bags for deads in your car, it’s annoying having to run home for a bag. - get familiar with the prices of bones, so if you come across something you know if it’s a good deal or not.
- spend lots of time reading as much info on vulture stuff as you can (you can go through the informational tag on this blog, this post will be tagged in it too) because you’ll either be glad you did or annoyed you didn’t when you come across something new you want to do but don’t have time to read up on it.

and as for the individual questions,

you have options for cleaning bones
- maceration, soaking in water till everything comes off.
- nature cleaning, putting the dead in a rot cage/old kennel and letting the bugs take care of it.
- rot box, throw it in a storage container with a little water and maybe a couple any sized holes in the bottom until it’s clean.
- what I call the body bag method, throw that shit in a plastic bag and let it rot.
- burying it under ground or in a pot.
for a bird which is smaller and more fragile, I’d say clean it up and macerate it, that’s the gentlest way to clean it.

I’ve never skinned a bird but from what I know, get a good sharp knife (I use a pocket knife and an exacto knife for the smaller areas, but any knife should do).
I’ve heard hanging it upside down helps a lot but I wouldn’t with a bird, too small. start skinning by cutting a line from the groin to the head, and around any legs/wings/head you don’t want to skin, (leaving a little won’t hurt) pinch the skin and pull it up while cutting it as to be careful not to puncture the stomach wall, it’ll be a little more difficult to do with the guts hanging out. then start to pull away the skin, if it doesn’t pull off easily take your knife and gently cut between the skin and the body, in little strokes. it should come right off and boom skinned bird.

then open up the stomach and pull out all the organs (this is my favorite part tbh it’s fun).
If you can/want you can preserve organs in 70% isopropyl alcohol which you can find at wallmart/target/all that crap or any drug store. just rinse it well, completely fill the jar, and throw the lil shit in there.

then set up what’s left of the body in your preferred cleaning method and wait until he’s done.

and for good places to find deads,

- road kill can be good, if it’s legal in your state. the skull isn’t always crushed and even if it is you can get other bones and maybe a pelt.
(you can tell if a skull is crushed by how they’re laying, gently squeezing the head, or just by looking at the head).
- I’ve found some good shit on eBay, you can find taxidermists who are just getting rid of extra skulls/heads cheap.
also etsy sometimes.
- antique/oddity shops.
- trading days, it’s like flea markets for country folk and sometimes you can find some cheap and good stuff.
- just out in the woods, look for water and food sources, also places an animal might go to die or might accidentally get killed. look for tracks too, you can see where the animals frequent.

I hope this helps! if you have any more questions feel free to leave another ask or message me.

And there was always the problem of gross pollution. Say that somebody dropped (accidentally or otherwise) a greasy wrench into 10,000 gallons of 90 percent peroxide in the hold of the ship. What would happen —and would the ship survive? This question so worried people that one functionary in the Rocket Branch (safely in Washington) who had apparently been reading Captain Horatio Hornblower, wanted us at NARTS (Naval Air Rocket Test Station) to build ourselves a 10,000-gallon tank, fill it up with 90 percent peroxide, and then drop into it —so help me God —one rat. (He didn’t specify the sex of the rat.) It was with considerable difficulty that our chief managed to get him to scale his order down to one test tube of peroxide and one quarter inch of rat tail.

i put my back into the bruise, carve the dark stain out of the fruit and discard the fruit. i leave behind nothing of the wood but the rot. i take you and make you unbeautiful. i wanted to love you until the forests screamed but i am only ever cutting down trees. white lace doesn’t look lovely if you know how much hydrogen peroxide was used to get the sick stain of blood out of it. we could kiss until it killed me but you have touched greater gods than the salt of my skin. we could burn the horizon until all you hear is violence. until the violins crack. 

I want to help out with fellow young adults~

  • When cooking potatoes, you know they’re done if you stick a fork/knife through and it goes in easy and out easy
  • When cooking pasta, if you can easily cut a noodle they’re done. (if you’re making spaghetti add a tiny bit of salt to the water and parmesan if you have it)
  • You can also add parmesan to the spaghetti sauce as well
  • do not put dishsoap in the dishwasher or the washing machine/dryer
  • only use dish soap for dishes in the sink
  • do not use laundry detergent in the dishwasher or the sink
  • remember to clean the lint out of your dryer
  • please don’t mix chemicals! (as seen on another post)
  • If you have periods and you accidentally stain your clothes, use cold water and hydrogen peroxide (you can also pour it on the article of clothing) and let it soak then wash it in cold water
  • if you’re cramping, try using a pad (I always do) also, heating pads are your best friend
  • learn the self-heimlich 
  • buy a first aid kit
  • do not i repeat DO NOT take out the battery in your smoke detector!
  • If you happen to have a kidney stone, drink PLENTY of water! Do not drink 1L within an hour though, keep in mind of waterintoxication it is a thing. If you are in pain try drinking water and if it’s bad take your medicine. Drinking anything with lemons helps break up the stone and take it easy. Don’t over do it!
  • a lot of grocery stores will have a last chance meat selection where you can get cheap meat for that night or within the next couple of nights
  • if your frozen meat is brown, it’s bad
  • magic erasers are your best friend
  • acetone (what’s usually found in nail polish remover) can be used for removing super glue
  • if you’re in a hot climate and working outside soak a towel and put it around your neck
  • if you’re working out in a hot climate, soaking the towel and freeze it overnight
  • stay hydrated, I believe if your urine is yellow you’re not hydrated enough. (Information from the kidney stone but also works any other time) if your urine is more clear then you’re okay
  • keep your phone/a phone close to you at all times in case you need it
  • keep an object (bat, walking stick, a small statue, anything that’s small and easy to hold) by your bed just in case
  • keep all doors, windows, and anything locked when you’re not using them
  • if there is a problem but it’s not an emergency, have your local police department’s phone number 
  • don’t be afraid to buy the generic brand
  • READ THE LABELS ON YOUR MEDICINE
  • do not ever drink (alcohol) and take any type of medicine
  • don’t forget to take care of yourself, everything will be okay if you’re living on your own. do the best you can and take what you can get, and always remember that if you have a question, ask it. no matter what it is. Do your best and take care, remember to stay hydrated and eat (even if you don’t feel like, eat something)
Here are 20 benefits you didn’t know of; Hydrogen Peroxide Edition.

Here are 20 ways you can take advantage of this small, but mighty, power! (Henceforth I will abbreviate hydrogen peroxide to “HP” and the below uses the %3 concentration of HP that is often found in common stores rather than a %5 concentration)

  1. Destruction of viruses- 3 drops of HP in each ear, and let drain, will eliminate earwax and any viruses that like to fester such as “swimmers ear”.
  2. Elimination of pesticides- Soak vegetables in ¼ cup of HP and 3 cups of water for 30 minutes. After rinse well, and store in the fridge (ensure that your vegetables are healthy and whole to prevent from solution sinking into the product)
  3. Kills off airborne germs- Mixing 1 pint of HP with 1 gallon of water and pouring into a humidifier will kick airborne germs in the bud, cleansing your air!
  4. Clean toothbrush-Leaving a moist toothbrush overnight isn’t the best for oral hygiene. Soak in HP and you’re all set!
  5. Helps with foot fungus-Mix together a 1:1 ratio of HP and water in an amber bottle and keep away from sunlight, apply to fungus directly.
  6. Remove organic stains- Anything like sweat, blood, wine, or food stains can be dissolved with HP and a little laundry detergent.
  7. Protection from swimmers ear-I bring this up in the form of a routine of cleansing your ear as a preventative measure, rather than a one-time fix as I had before.
  8. Treat calluses and corns- Mix equal parts HP and water and soak your feet to soften them.
  9. Eliminate boils-Pour one cup of 35% HP into a bath and soak in the tub.
  10. Skin cleanser-the anti-bacterial properties of HP can cleanse your face as well!
  11. Mouth rinse-Not only will it kill mouth bacteria that cause bad breath, but whiten!
  12. Wound cleaning and disinfection-Small cuts and lacerations of course will be able to heal faster unhindered by debris and bacteria!
  13. Relieve toothache-gargle with a mixture of coconut oil and HP a remedy that has been said to relieve tooth pain swiftly!
  14. Sinus cleanser-Safe enough to enter your nasal passages and clean out your sinuses!
  15. Body detoxification- 1 cup of 35% HP in a bath for a 30 minute soak, and then shower as per usual!
  16. Household cleaner-As a sanitizing agent HP is remarkably well-suited for the job! Use as a general, multi-surface cleaner!
  17. Contact lenses cleaner- In a diluted solution of HP, leave your contact lenses to soak in it overnight!
  18. Refresh reusable shopping bags- Especially if you carry packages of meat that are not always tightly packed and give under duress, do some sanitizing with HP!
  19. Glass cleaner- Allow HP to sit on a mirror and bubble before wiping away!
  20. Lunchbox disinfector- Lunches that leak can provide a shock under the microscope, use HP to cleanse it!

gravegh0st  asked:

hiya! i'm really curious how to get into vc? i've always been intrigued even before i knew what it was (in 3rd grade i wanted to keep a rabbit that died in our garden's skull and the skull from a roadkill skunk). but i just don't know where to start? do i just go pluck some roadkill from the road? honestly just some links or maybe phrases to search to get me started would be nice tbh. thanks for running this blog! it's really cool man

Welcome to the community! I’m glad you like our blog =)

To make things easy, click here to access the Vulture Culture Masterpost, which has different links for animal processing methods and tutorials. This post should have all the information you’ll need to get started with processing animal parts. And here’s a nice page about roadkill collection alone.

I’m also going to add in another link:
This is Lupa Greenwolf’s website on animal parts laws, which has a good summary of different laws but isn’t listed on the Masterpost.

Before you get started doing much of anything I’d first recommend that you brush up on your laws. While it may be a pain, look up your local laws. It’s always easier to keep things legal instead of trying to go through hoops and hope you don’t get caught.

Also, feel free to ask around in the community if you ever need any help! Tumblr has a very active Vulture Culture community and many of us would be glad to assist fellow Vultures if we’re able. I’ve also noticed there’s several VC groups on Facebook, and some Vultures like to hang out on Instagram.

Another thing I’d like to mention is that if roadkill doesn’t work out for you, whether it be because of laws or you just find out it’s not your cup of tea, there’s always other ways to obtain animal parts. Finding stuff in the woods, getting in contact with hunters/trappers, getting “ins” with pet breeders/pet stores/farmers/butchers, buying things in thrift stores/oddity shops/trade stores/fur dealers/flea markets/garage sales, or even buying online whether it’s from a fellow Vulture or bigger websites like Moscow Hide & Fur or even eBay. Find what works best for you.

Finally, here’s some common phrases you might want to know:

Bone Phrases:

  • Maceration: A method of processing bones, where you soak them in plain water.
  • Degreasing: The process of removing grease from bones. This is done after cleaning, but before bleaching. Common methods include soaking bones in water with plain Dawn dish soap and changing the water until it becomes clear, or for tougher jobs you can use ammonia or even acetone.
  • Bleaching: NOT referring to actual bleach! Bleaching is using hydrogen peroxide in order to whiten and sanitize bones after they have been cleaned and degreased. Actual bleach will set in grease, and eventually cause your bones to become brittle and flake or otherwise turn to powder.
  • Nature Cleaned: Refers to bones that were found “clean”, as in they were free or mostly free of meat and skin.
  • Boiling: DO NOT BOIL BONES! If someone who knows better says their bones are boiled, it’s likely that they actually mean “simmered”. Simmering bones is just what it sounds like, and has to be done carefully to avoid cooking the fat into the bones.
  • Grease Spots: These are unsightly (and sometimes smelly) dark or yellowish spots on bones that were not properly or thoroughly degreased. Bones can usually be degreased again without any problem. If a skull was bleached with actual bleach it’s not recommended to attempt to degrease them, as they may disintegrate more quickly if submerged in water.
  • Articulation: Putting a skeleton back together after cleaning.
  • Staining: The act of coloring bones using different dying agents.
  • Replica: As it implies, this is not a real skull/bone, it is an artificial fake, usually made from some form of resin.

Pelt Phrases:

  • Green/Raw: This means a pelt that is not tanned, and likely not processed in any way. An untanned pelt will eventually decompose, so if you want to keep a pelt you will need to tan it.
  • Fleshing: Fleshing is the process of scraping or otherwise removing any extra meat or membrane from a pelt in preparation to have it tanned. This step, while difficult, is necessary in order to have a tan penetrate the skin. If a pelt is fleshed, that means someone has already done this step.
  • Salted: A pelt that is salted is also not tanned, but is dried. This also applies to dried pieces such as mummified bodies or dried wings or other parts. Usually done after fleshing a pelt, salting will temporarily preserve a pelt so that it may be transported or stored until it can be tanned. It’s recommended to use non-iodized salt for this process. Borax can also be used, and is good for deterring bugs, but it tends to have bad reactions with tanning agents. Borax can be good to use for salting bird wings, feet, or other things that you cannot tan.
  • Rehydrating: This refers to wetting a pelt, usually for the purpose of shaping it or tanning it (if not already tanned). Can be done with a salted or tanned pelt. Taxidermists and crafters commonly rehydrate pelts or parts of pelts to work with them. Not recommended to do multiple times, as it can weaken the leather.
  • Slipping/Slipped: This refers to patches where fur comes out of the pelt, usually during or after tanning (though slipping can happen before that). Typically the result of improper preservation, and more common to happen with animals who were left to sit and rot before being either processed or frozen whole.
  • Pickle/Pickling: Part of the tanning process, this step helps kill bacteria left in the hide. Not referring to what you can do with a cucumber.
  • Blown Ear: This means the ear is ripped, which can happen when the ears are being turned. Not desirable for taxidermy.
  • Turned Ears/Split Lips: If a pelt has its ears turned and lips split, that usually means the pelt in general has been prepped for taxidermy. Turning ears refers to removing the ear cartilage, while splitting lips means separating the inner lip skin so there is enough skin left for tucking. Usually you’ll also want the nose cartilage removed, and for the inner eyelids to be in tact.
  • Craft Quality: This means a pelt is suitable for crafts, but is not suitable for taxidermy, and possibly too “unsightly” for displaying on its own. Usually for pieces such as faces or paws, or for pelts with a lot of slips or holes.
  • Wallhanger: Referring to a pelt that is good for display. Usually also good for crafting with, however it’s best to ask to ensure the leather isn’t too weak.
  • Mountable: A pelt that should be suitable for taxidermy. This means that the pelt is complete, holes are minimal, there is no slipping or very little slipping, the leather is strong, and preferably it is “taxidermy prepped” (ears turned, lips split, etc.).

I think between this list and the Masterpost you should have enough information for a good start! I hope this isn’t too much all at once, or too basic and stuff you already knew. If you have any questions feel free to send us another message, or ask around in the community in general.

How to take care of an open wound.

Because I keep seeing people give awful advice and it makes me cringe, so I’m posting this for information.

This applies to MINOR wounds, such as scratches, blisters from friction or sunburn and other nicks and cuts that you don’t necessarily need medical attention for.

This can also be applied to #self-harm wounds that are superficial, if you need to care for your injuries.

Blisters.

  1. Never pop a blister. The clear fluid inside a blister is called plasma or serum, which aids in the healing process, and it will be reabsorbed into the body on it’s own. The skin over the blister protects the area from infection.
  2. Cover the blister with a padded dressing (such as a bandaid) to prevent friction stress. 
  3. If the blister pops of it’s own accord or the skin has been damaged, gently rinse the area with warm salt water. Never use hydrogen peroxide or bleach, as this will kill the good bacteria in the wound and will extend the healing time, making it more susceptible to infection.
  4. Cover the open blister with a bandaid or other absorbent dressing, and try to keep the area clean and dry. 
  5. Watch for infection. If the clear fluid becomes yellowed or cloudy, you should see a doctor, because pus is generally a sign of infection alongside localised heat, swelling and pain. 

Cuts or abrasions to the skin.

  1. Warm, salt water is the only thing that should be applied to the wound. Clean it once a day AT MOST, and cover the wound with a waterproof adhesive dressing. 
  2. Do not interfere with the wound. Picking scabs and constant cleaning/dressing changes will disrupt the healing process, opening the area to infection or scarring. 
  3. Never put ointments or creams on the area, unless instructed to by your doctor. Doing so will invite bacteria into the area and could provide an environment for infection to grow.
  4. Watch for signs of infection. Again red, swollen and inflamed skin is an indicator, as well as pus and pain that does not abate. If this occurs, consult your doctor for advice.

 

Further, more detailed information under a cut for #self-harm wounds.

PSA for pet owners

If you find your puppy/ kitten, fully grown dog/cat near rat poison, licking it or with it in their mouth chances are they already ate a lot of it. Don’t assume that you caught them in time. Call or head straight to your vet immediately. If too far away get them to vomit using some hydrogen peroxide and then go to your vet. Time is life.

Hair dead from too many times dyeing it, but you're too punk rock to stop?

Well! I had this same problem. I’ve been changing my hair color every two weeks for the past three years, and a lot of people would ask how I kept my hair from falling out of my scalp. Answer is, for a while, sheer dumb luck. Then, earlier this semester, it started breaking off in huge, multicolored clumps. (My roommate must have LOVED that). After that, I devised a hair care regimen that keeps everything in ship shape and looking lovely. 

  1.  Wash with Target’s Keratin Oil Shampoo cus dear god does that shit work. It comes in a big pink bottle and smells like joy.
  2. Try the Lush Seanic or Cinnamon Shampoo. This is if you are in dire need, of course, since that stuff is hella expensive. However, if you were in my position, $10 is NOTHING to keep from going bald. Also, they come in bar form which doesn’t sound like that big of a deal until you realize that this makes it more efficient to transport by a hell of a lot, thus making it super environmentally friendly. Plus they aren’t tested on animals. I like Lush way too much for my own good. Anyway! Moving on!
  3. Kiss My Face’s Whenever Conditioner wraps you all up in healing glee. This is also made with Moroccan Oil which (my research has shown) is a sustainable and humanitarian substance. But aside from the politics therein, this conditioner doesn’t take too much to coat all of your hair and makes everything smell like citrussy goodness. Leave that on there for about 5 minutes and then rinse like a normal conditioner.
  4. USE ACTUAL FUCKING BLEACH I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. JESUS, I GET THAT WE’RE PUNKS BUT OMFG DO NOT JUST USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE THAT KILLS YOUR HAIR AND IT WILL NEVER BE HAPPY AGAIN.
  5. When styling, Got 2 b Glued makes a new keratin formula which is great for your hair. Which is good considering that brand holds your hair in place by means of divine intervention. Like no shit, it’s awesome. Never moves. A+

Now, keep in mind every scalp is different. However, this worked really really well for me, and I think it will for you too. Keep killing fascists and be kind to yourself <3

anonymous asked:

I saw a picture of a deer skull you cleaned, and i was wondering how you got the color so even and nice?? I use a 50/50 water and hydrogen peroxide solution and my skulls come out splotchy and grayish :/

I used all hydrogen peroxide, and I soaked it twice for a few days, rinsing it with cold water between soaks and after the last one. That’s something I saw online to do, and I plan to do it with the other bones I found on my walk yesterday that were ready to be taken (the ribs and spine still had some flesh on them, so I’m gonna leave those out until the fall).

Not really sure if that’s the right way to clean them, but I saw it on a website and it worked for me. Also make sure to cover up the container you put the bones to soak in. I used an old tupperware container and put cling wrap under the lid before closing it up, that way the hydrogen peroxide works better.

I made copper acetate at home!The whole appartment smelled like vinegar,but it was worth it
Actually is really simple to make this at home,all you need is some hydrogen peroxide (the one for human use is good),vinegar (you have to mix it with hydrogen peroxide in equal parts) and some copper coins. Boil the mixture of vinegar and H2O2 and then add the copper coins and you’re done!

So I’ve had my ears pierced ever since I was a few months old. But right now my right ear hole is infected. Like why??? It’s sore, red, crusty and a little swollen. I haven’t worn earrings in months. Usually if I wear earrings it will get sore sometimes. But it just randomly got infected.

I’ve been using hydrogen peroxide on it. This is just reassuring me to not get Aubree’s ears pierced.

Just a tip, if you are afraid you will ruin your underwear bc of your period, put on a pair of bikini bottoms that fit. That way you don’t need to use hydrogen peroxide to get any blood out bc it comes out with only water, leaving no stain.

Multipurpose life hack

I saw this post on facebook and am here to share. Probably one of my favorite things

Oh, Hydrogen Peroxide. You do so many things. You deserve more attention.

Here’s a list of the many benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide!

1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. No more canker sores and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash. (Small print says mouth wash and gargle right on the bottle).

2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of “Peroxide” to keep them free of germs.

3. Clean your counters with 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.

4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.

5. One man reports, “I had a fungus on my feet for years - until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry. All gone.”

6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. A nurse reports that she has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine, but was healed by soaking in peroxide.

7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.

8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, or plugged sinuses. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes then blow your nose into a tissue.

9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

10. If you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages, but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, reddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually so it’s not a drastic change.

11. Put half of a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections.

12. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there are protein stains on clothing, pour it directly on the spot, let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with water. Repeat if necessary.

13. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors with, and there is no smearing which is why I love it so much for this.

14. Use 3% Hydrogen peroxide for removing blood stains – especially if they are fairly fresh. Pour directly on the soiled spot, let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary. It is a great bleaching agent for stubborn stains on white clothes. Combine ½ c. hydrogen peroxide and 1 t. ammonia for a great stain removal combination.

15. Use hydrogen peroxide to bleach delicate items such as wool or wool blends. Soak them overnight in a solution of one part 3% hydrogen peroxide to eight parts cold water. Launder according to care instructions.

*Also, if you have a dog that you need to get to vomit (like if they ate a bunch of chocolate), make them swallow hydrogen peroxide. Give it to them a few teaspoons at a time.*
