Green Cleaning with Hydrogen Peroxide

Maybe you have heard about cleaning with hydrogen peroxide and wondered if it works.  Hydrogen peroxide by itself does not clean, but when formulated with the right detergents, a powerful green cleaner is borne!

The short Youtube video below extolls the virtues of cleaning products containing hydrogen peroxide, or read on for more details on how hydrogen peroxide products can solve cleaning problems.


What does hydrogen peroxide do?

Hydrogen peroxide is sometimes referred to as “oxygen bleach”.  It has the ability to destroy odors caused by bacteria, remove stains, and brighten surfaces.  Unlike chlorine bleach, hydrogen peroxide does not destroy fabrics, is surface safe, and non-toxic.  After use, hydrogen peroxide naturally decomposes to oxygen and water.

Where does hydrogen peroxide shine?  A few examples…

Grout Cleaning:  Getting grout clean and keeping it clean is one of the most frustrating tasks for cleaners.  A cleaning product fortified with hydrogen peroxide makes an exceptional grout cleaner.  The detergents power out dirt, the hydrogen peroxide helps remove stains and brightens the color of the grout.

Carpet Cleaning and stain removal:  Carpet can get stained quickly with beverages like coffee, sports drinks, soda, or alcoholic beverages.  In addition, it is a great sink for odors.  A carpet spotting product containing hydrogen peroxide is your best bet for removing coffee and other beverage stains.  Encapsulation carpet cleaning products fortified with hydrogen peroxide for interim cleaning help power out stains and leaves carpets smelling fresh.

Deodorization:  Natural decomposition (aka rotting) of organic materials involve bacteria that generate foul odors.  Cleaning products containing hydrogen peroxide are natural malodor counteractants that destroy the odor causing bacteria, and hence the bad odors.  One of the most common challenging malodors is urine odor.  Hydrogen peroxide fortified products can help neutralize urine odors and stains on fabrics, carpets, and on grouted tile floors in restrooms.

    Wow I never knew that Hyrdogen peroxide was good to have around the house for any purpose except for cleaning out cuts. Double-o-seven – that’s a great name for a cleaner. That’s quick the line up by the way.
