Whether it is conscious or unconscious we all want to protect our family and friends from bacteria and viruses in our household. Hydrogen peroxide is a great way to do some green cleaning and make sure that the mess will not only disappear but so will the things that can cause us harm. The things that naturally cause us harm are also anaerobic which means they survive best without oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide uses oxygen and instead of pumping the bad guys full of lead it pumps them full of oxygen to destroy them. So what exactly makes food grade hydrogen peroxide the best choice to do some green cleaning? Well, it is the byproducts of food grade hydrogen peroxide that make it an ideal choice to cover many of your green cleaning necessities. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into two simple compounds water and oxygen. You can make your dilution of food grade hydrogen peroxide and when you are done cleaning you dispose of it in any way without any worries. I am not saying that highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide cannot cause any harm by itself, because it can. The byproducts may be harmless and make it an ideal choice to do some green cleaning, but hydrogen peroxide in its starting form must be handled properly and with care. Wear protective equipment to avoid skin contact with higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and you can have a friend that supports all your crusades to keep your family healthy.
