KITCHEN COUN­TERS 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.

CUT­TING BOARD

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. TEETH WHITENING 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.

RE­US­ABLE SHOP­PING BAGS

It’s more than likely the re­us­able bags you take to the su­per­mar­ket are con­tam­i­nated with germs, even Ecoli. That’s be­cause gro­cery bags of­ten come in con­tact with poul­try and pro­duce that have bac­te­ria on them, which causes cross-con­tam­i­na­tion the next time they are used. These bags should be laun­dered af­ter ev­ery use, but most shop­pers ad­mit they’ve never done that. An eas­ier so­lu­tion is to spray them in­side and out with or­di­nary 3 per­cent hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide.

RE­MOVE

Blood­stains on kitchen tow­els, clothes or other items can be dif­fi­cult to re­move. The se­cret is to sat­u­rate the stain with hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide. Al­low it to sit for a few min­utes. Then rinse with wa­ter and laun­der as usual. BLOOD­STAINS
