Subject: Peroxide VS Bleach
(came to me...EBS...in a 2/23/09 e-mail & I post it without meaning to recommend
"This was written by Becky Ransey of Indiana (a
doctor's wife), and I want to share it with you. She was over recently for coffee and
smelled the bleach I was using to clean my toilet and counter tops. This is what she told
"I would like to tell you of the benefits of that
plain little ole bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store.
What does bleach cost? My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, and
most doctors don't tell you about peroxide.
"Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor's
office? NO!!! Why? Because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nurses
who work in the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach at home They are
wiser and know better!
"Did you also know bleach was invented in the late
40's? It's chlorine, folks! And it was used to kill our troops. "Peroxide was
invented during WWI. It was used to save and help cleanse the needs of our troops and
hospitals. Please think about this:
- Take one capful (the
little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then
spit it out. (I do it when I bathe.) No more canker sores, and your teeth will be
whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.
- Let your
toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of
- Clean your counters
and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little
on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.
- After rinsing off
your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other
- I had fungus
[onychomycosis] on my feet for
years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every
night and let dry.
- Soak any infections
or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen
gangrene that would not heal with any medicine but was healed by soaking in
- Fill a spray bottle
with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without
harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants
- Tilt your head back
and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus.
It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your
nose into a tissue.
- If you have a
terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into
your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen
- Put half a bottle of
peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin
- You can also add a
cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If
there is blood on clothing, pour it directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute,
then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.
- I use peroxide to clean my mirrors.
There is no smearing, which is why I love it so much for this.

should be without! From: Ruth Sykes Sent: Feb 5, 2009 9:36 PM"
