Should You Replace Vinegar With Hydrogen Peroxide When Cleaning?

I love using hydrogen peroxide when I am cleaning my house. In fact, in my opinion, it’s even better than vinegar. I know that this is a pretty bold statement since vinegar is such a staple in almost any DIY recipe for cleaners, however, I must say that I prefer hydrogen peroxide over it.

If you are a fan of using natural ingredients to clean your home then I suggest you give hydrogen peroxide a try for a while and see if you like it better. One of the reasons as to why I prefer it over vinegar is the smell. I hate the smell of vinegar and I don’t like the idea of my home smelling that bad right after I am done cleaning. I have tried adding essential oil to it and I still can’t take it.

The second reason as to why I prefer using hydrogen peroxide is because it gets rid of stains way easier. I have found that it’s more effective in stain removal.

Here Is How I Use Hydrogen Peroxide!

– I remove stains off of my mattress

Dealing with a stained mattress? No problem because hydrogen peroxide can remove even the toughest ones out there. For example, blood stains are easily removed with it.

Simply mix 2 parts of hydrogen peroxide with 1 part of liquid soap in a spray bottle and spray the stained area with your solution.

– I disinfect my toothbrushes

As we all know we need to disinfect out toothbrushes every once in a while. I have found that the best way to do it is by soaking it in hydrogen peroxide for 5 minutes then rinsing it with hot water.

– I easily clean dirty pots and pans

Cleaning dirty pots and pans are often associated with scrubbing for hours with no result. Well, what if I told you that you no longer need to scrub? In fact, there is such an easy way to clean pots or pans that are covered in grease, stains, and food residue!

You need to create a paste by using 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of liquid soap, and 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide. Apply a thick layer of the paste on your pot/ pan and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing it with a sponge.

– I remove sweat stains off of my clothes

One of the hardest stains to get rid of has to be that yellowish sweat stain on light clothes. I swear that no matter how many times you wash that clothing item in the washing machine the stain will still remain.

Thankfully, hydrogen peroxide can get rid of this problem. Simply soak the stains overnight in a mixture of baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and water.
