Ever wonder what people do with hydrogen peroxide? Besides bleach out their hair, I mean.

Well, it is often included in first aid kits, and when you buy it at the store, it can usually be found near the rubbing alcohol and band-aids.

Chemically speaking, it is H2O2, just slightly different from water, which is H2O.

Hydrogen peroxide will happily give up that extra O (oxygen), and as a result, many wonderful things can happen! Check it out:

1. Bye Bye germs. Dilute hydrogen peroxide with water (1-pint peroxide to 1-gallon water) and add the mix to a humidifier – no more airborne germs!

3. Bye Bye viruses. Simply put three drops of peroxide in your ears and let it drain out. It will remove excess wax.
