Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) and Vinegar -
The Natural Antiseptics

For the flu and colds
Although it sounds contradictory to conventional wisdom, however many people have tried hydrogen peroxyde in the ears with good effect, especially if it's done when the symptoms first appear.

In 1928, Dr. Richard Simmons, hypothesized that colds and flu virus enter our bodies through the ear canal. That means we can catch the flu and colds via the ear canal and not through the eyes or nose or mouth as most of us believe. Needless to say, Dr. Simmons' findings were dismissed by the medical community.

According to Dr. Simmons, keeping your fingers out of our ears will greatly reduce our chances of catching colds and the flu, however these two are microscopic and can be air-born and land on our ears. Once they have entered the inner-ear, they begin to breed, and from there they have access to every part of our bodies.

Hydrogen Peroxide Ear Drops
Remarkable results can be achieved in within 12-14 hours when we administer a few drops of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) into the ears. There will be some bubbling, and in some cases, mild stinging might occur. I do this myself and I can assure you that it is not painful in any way. It tickles more than anything.

Wait until the bubbling subsides - usually a few minutes - then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear.

Although this practice is perfectly safe for infants and children to use, the loud bubbling and stinging may frighten them, and they will need someone they trust to put the hydrogen peroxide in their ears. DO NOT get hydrogen peroxide in the eyes - if you do, flush with water.

Many people have also successfully used the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide solution in ears packed with wax, to help loosen it up after it has been soaked with oil for a few minutes (any oil will do, olive oil usually works best).

Natueral Disinfectant and Vegetable Wash

You can make your kitchen a safer, cleaner place and eliminate bacteria, without exposing yourself or your family to toxic chemicals which also damage the environment.

What you need is 3% hydrogen peroxide, and plain white vinegar or apple cider vinegar and 2 clean "spray bottle", like the ones you use to dampen laundry before ironing.

When cleaning fruits or vegetables, simply spray them well first with both the vinegar and the hydrogen peroxide, and then rinse them off with tap water.

It doesn't make a difference which one you use first. There won't be any lingering taste of hydrogen peroxide or vinegar, and neither is toxic to you even if a small amount were to remain on the produce.

The sprays of hydrogen peroxide and vinegar do an exceptionally good job at sanitizing counters and other food preparation surfaces such as wood cutting boards.

In tests performed at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (1), combining the 2 mists eliminated virtually all Salmonella, E. coli bacteria or Shigella on heavily contaminated foods and surfaces when used in this manner, making this spray combination more effective at destroying these potentially deadly bacteria than any commercially available kitchen cleaner or chlorine bleach.

Inexpensive 3% hydrogen peroxide can be found in drug stores (Guardian, Watson's etc)

Another idea is to keep your toothbrush in a glass of hydrogen peroxide in between brushings.
