What To Avoid When Cleaning Your Bathroom With Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide is a versatile cleaner for use throughout your home, especially in your bathroom. However, you must still be cautious when working with this potent sanitizer.
Don't forget to protect your skin from hydrogen peroxide, as even the 3% concentration available in stores can cause blisters or chemical burns, or turn fingertips white.
Always wear rubber gloves when cleaning with hydrogen peroxide, and keep it away from children, as their skin is even more susceptible to chemical burns, according to the CDC.
Vinegar is useful for so many household cleaning tasks, but you should never mix it with hydrogen peroxide, as together they form a corrosive acid that can damage surfaces.
Even worse, it can harm your eyes, nose, throat, lungs, and skin. Instead, make a paste with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to safely remove greasy residue and stubborn stains.
