SUMMARY OF EMERGENCY PROCEDURES;
1. H2o2 contains no poisons or toxins. It is a chemical compound consisting ONLY of water (h2o) and oxygen (o).
2. If contact with skin, do not panic. H2o2 it will TEMPORARILY bleach the skin color and will sting. However, no permanent damage is done and color will return in less than one hour. No poison or toxic substance has been absorbed through the skin as h2o2. The bleaching is caused by the oxygen in h2o2.
3.If contact with skin, wash off area generously with water or any drinkable liquid (soda pop or any beverage if water is not available.
4. If contact with eyes, immediately flush eyes generously with water. Or any water based liquid.
5. If internally swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Drink as much water as possible and contact emergency medical care immediately.
6. Spill clean up? Wash with water. H2o2 contains no toxins or contaminants to ground or ground water.
7. H2o2 is not flammable.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SHIPPING h2o2 to a friend or other location
There are restrictions on shipping h2o2. This is only a summary and specifics may add additional requirements.
The h2o2 we ship may be shipped in limited quantity as an "ORM-D" product (consumer commodity). There are many requirements and restrictions. If you reshipped h2o2 to a friend or another person, you MUST follow these rules. Please note, other rules may prohibit reshipping.
1. H2o2 can NEVER be sent by air mail, any air transportation or through the United States post office.
2. There is a limit on the level of concentration that can be shipped.
3. We HIGHLY advise that you do not reship if the bottle has been opened and the seal broken.
4. For safety to the carrier, we highly recommend double sealing the bottle in 2 bags of at least 2 mil thick plastic bags.
5. The box must be marked with a specific ORM-D label and with red arrows pointing to the top of the bottle on at least two sides.
6. You can not ship h2o2 in any concentration to any foreign country, Hawaii or Alaska due to restrictions and the strict restriction of no air transportation of h2o2.
7. Do not ship h2o2 to a military base or to a government building.
8. You can not take h2o2 in any concentration on aircraft, even in personal baggage.
BEFORE SHIPPING OR TRANSPORTING ANY h2o2 product, re-read the above and speak to the shipping company.
TYPICAL USES OF HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
Why is the use of bleach and ammonia so common in the United States? For one reason: it is cheap to manufacture and can be stored for a long amount of time. While convenient for companies, both are highly toxic in both liquid and vapor form. This has been known for decades. The fumes of bleach and ammonia are harmful to you, to your children, to your pets and to your plants. They both can mix with other chemicals to produce particularly deadly vapors.
Many countries and increasingly individuals instead use hydrogen peroxide. As the elements of h2o2 are hydrogen, oxygen and water (none of which are toxic), the obvious safety factors are great. And generally h2o2 is more effective.
Does it cost more? Yes, but little more. Remember, those gallon jugs of bleach and quart bottles of ammonia based cleaners are highly diluted. The actual dollar-price difference is small - and in many instances actually lower.
Swimming Pool and Hot Tub usage:
Many recommend shocking your pool or tub to start using hydrogen peroxide. Either Food Grade or Technical Grade can be used.
To “shock” your pool or hot tub, a relatively high level is used at a ratio of 1 cup for every 250 gallons. DO NOT RUN your pump continuously. Rather, run it only long enough to circulate the water and then turn off the pump. Ideally, you should add the h2o2 at sunset and allow the water to sit 24 hours before turning the pump back on. The tub or pool may be used afterwards.
It is NOT necessary to shock your pool or hot tub if you are starting with fresh water. H2o2 will not adversely interact with other pool chemicals.
POOL AND HOT TUB MAINTAINANCE:
This depends quite a bit on the water source and the amount of organic materials that enter the water (dust, leaves, number of people using the pool etc.) If you are starting with new water, a good starting point is 1 cup of h2o2 for every 500 gallons of water.
H2o2 interacts with and oxidizes organic materials and decomposes with UV light. This is a reason that h2o2 must be added time to time to maintain its level in the water. There is no danger of h2o2 levels increasing or forming dangerous residual chemicals.
Ideally, you would keep the concentration level measuring between 50 and 100 ppm. Test strips can be found for such testing at any local pool store.
CHECK YOUR FILTERS OFTEN:
As with any pool or hot tub with a filtration system, you should regularly check your filter(s) as clogged filters will damage some pumping systems.
H2o2 should ALWAYS be stored in TOTAL DARKNESS and a cool location. UV light causes h2o2 to decompose.
Always wear plastic gloves and safety goggles when adding h2o2 to the water as it can splash or spill. You simply add the hydrogen peroxide to the water and no special injection system is necessary.

TO WASH AND PRESERVE FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES:
Food spoilage and food poisoning both are the result of microorganisms growth in fresh cut fruits and vegetables. Increasingly, food packers have begun switching to use of hydrogen peroxide as a disinfecting agent due to the safety issues of using chlorine. H2o2 is a powered anti-microbial which may be used not only for washing fruits and vegetables free of pesticides and other contaminants present, but also to extend the shelf live of these fresh products and elimination of the microorganisms delays spoilage.
If you are wise enough to wash your fresh product and tired of how quickly it spoils even if refrigerated, washing these in an H2o2 solution will cure both problems without any of the toxic effects of chlorine.
Dilution ratio: 1/8 cup h2o2 per 1-gallon water. (A little goes a long way!)
TIRED OF LETTUCE GOING BAD AFTER YOU START TO USE IT?
Ever notice that after you open a head of lettuce, it starts to go bad within hours - turning brown? This is due to invasion of microorganisms into the area where the lettuce has been cut. Your touching transported the bacteria, fungus etc.
Dilution: If you keep a gallon jug with 1/2 ounce h2o2 to the gallon and rinse the head off before putting it in a sealed plastic container (shake off the excess h2o2 solution first), it will last longer before it turns.
Many medical experts agree that most colds and flues are not transported through the air but rather by the hands. You shake hands with someone and whether in eating, rubbing your nose, smoking a cigarette, chewing your fingernails, etc - pass this on to yourself via your hands. Experts agree that washing your hands often is the best way to reduce catching many diseases.
Dilution: To make a good hand wash, use 1 ounce per 1-pint (2 cups) h2o2. You also may add hand soap to this solution and put it in a hand soap pump bottle. Now you are not only washing your hands, you also are using a powerful antiseptic.
TO PRESERVE MEAT:
The primary cause of meat spoilage is microorganisms. Meat packers learned long ago that if they can keep meat from being touched it will not spoil for months. Packinghouses will have their meat cutters never touch the meat directly and continually dipping their knives in sterilizing solution. If you are tired of your meat spoiling within a day or two from arriving from the grocery store (cutters in grocery stores tend not to follow these standards), wash fresh meat (beef, poultry and pork - all but hamburger) in an h2o2 solution and put it in a zip-lock bag careful NOT to touch it first and it will last for weeks.
Dilution: Same as vegetables and fruit above.
HOT TUBS AND SWIMMING POOLS:
What is more repulsive than the powerful and repugnant smell of chlorine in a hot tub or swimming pool? And those fumes are anything but good for you. Increasingly, h2o2 is the preferred method of keeping hot tub and pool water free of algae, bacteria and fungus. It certainly is great to wipe down a hot tub for cleaning (rather than choking on bleach fumes).
Dilution Ratio: 1/4 cups h2o2 per 500 gallons of good water.
This ratio may be lowered to 1/8th cup per gallon water if you are using "treated city water" and the hot tub is indoors. H2o2 will not adversely clash with bleach/chlorine.
TIP: Birdbaths can become terribly contaminated if not periodically cleaned. Use the same ratio. The same is true for fountains. HOWEVER, do NOT use h2o2 or chlorine if fish are present, as fish are very chemical sensitive.
HOUSE & GARDEN PLANTS:
Plants like h2o2 and it benefits them in two ways. First, it oxygenates the soil. Second, it kills microorganisms, fungus and bacteria harmful to plants. It will not harm worms. House plants and gardens thrive with h2o2 supplementing and increasing numbers of commercial farmers have added h2o2 to their inventories for their crops for this reason.
Dilution Ratio. Put 1/2 ounce food grade per 1-gallon water for plant watering and for water to soak seeds for sprouting.
Sprouting needs: Add 1 ounce 3% hydrogen peroxide to one pint of water and soak the seeds overnight. Add the same amount of hydrogen peroxide each time you rinse the seeds.
KITCHEN, BATHROOM AND GENERAL SANITIZING:
Chlorine, bleach, and ammonia all are toxic, both in liquid form and the fumes they cause. H2o2 is the safe and wise alternative. Use it to wipe down kitchen counters, to mop the floor and particularly wipe down the refrigerator interior (kills the organisms leading to spoilage. It will sterilize the toilet bowl and overall bathrooms tend to collect microorganisms. Wipe out the children's lunch box to eliminate odors and overall it is great for eliminating kitchen odors.
Dilution Ratio: 1 cup h2o2 per 1 gallon water.
We make a specific product for h2o2 bathing (Body purification). H2o2 baths oxygenate the skin and kill the microorganism that infests the skin. If combined with Epsom salt (available in any drug store), this would be the most relaxing and reviving bath you ever took. Follow up with a quick rinsing shower. This is particularly pleasant is shortly before bedtime and you will sleep the best in your life.
Dilution Ratio: 2 cups Body Purification per approximately 10 gallons bath water. May double this level of concentration if you wish after testing this lower level first. the dilution ratio of 1 ounce per 1 quart is good for a face wash water, and good to reduce ache as well. But do not use around your eyes any stronger than this and if in doubt, dilute further.
Pillows and pillow cases are extremely good at gathering micro-pests.
H2o2 is a safe alternative to unsafe bleach. The finest clothing manufacturers use h2o2, not bleach, as their whitening agent. Bleach residual against your skin is terrible for the skin and chloride vapor in the air is very harmful to health. Replace bleach with h2o2.
Every month or so you should rotate the pillows you sleep on. Remove the pillowcase and seal the old one in a black plastic trash bag and leave it in the sun (if possible). At the end of the month, all the mites, fungus, bacteria and other microorganisms are gone. Rotate your pillows this way. The only alternative is to wash in an h2o2 solution (if pillow is washable and most actually are) or throw you pillows away every month or two.
Dilution for laundry: 1 cup h2o2 per wash load.
You may increase this amount for strong bleaching effect on whites if you wish. H2o2 will also kill the millions of micro-mites and pests that gather in bedding and pay particular attention to pillowcases.
Dilution Ratio: 1/2 cups h2o2 into the dishwasher.
Dishes will sparkle and sanitized. Or use 1 ounce per gallon sink water if you sink wash your dishes (add it to in the rinse water if you rinse with a basin.)
For small animals (dogs and cats) use 1 ounce hydrogen peroxide to 1-gallon water for their bath water. For drinking water, the dilution should be no stronger than 4 drops h2o2 per 1-gallon water.
Remember to keep your pet's bedding clean like yours and h2o2 is a great sterilizing agent. Wash a cat litter box with the h2o2 kitchen cleaning mix described about and odors are gone - and not replaced with horrible bleach smells.
Never use ammonia to clean anything around pets.
It is terrible particularly to use ammonia for mopping around pets. Ammonia smells like urine to animals (how many animals mark their territory) and both cats and dogs can be deeply confused by ammonia smells as it leads them to believe their territory had been invaded. Usage of ammonia has lead to many otherwise unexplainable dog and cat run-aways.
Never use h2o2 for aquarium water as each species of fish if generally very chemical specific. However, h2o2 can be used for aquarium clean up (fish out) and would kill the microorganisms that make the rocks, etc in an aquarium stink.
(NOTE: Our H2O2 is used by some of the largest commercial aquariums in the country specifically to be able to clean aquarium water and pumping equipment without removing the fish or water. Our H2O2 was selected for its purity and consistency - critically when dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventories of exotic fish. After testing numerous suppliers of even legitimate Food Grade H2O2, they selected ours HOWEVER, such usage requires expertise and specific testing equipment. Therefore, do NOT use any H2O2 in aquarium water with fish present unless you really know what you are doing.)
After using the h2o2 cleaning solution (2 ounces per gallon)
Letting it soak a while, then rinse again with fresh water. Odors gone. Microorganisms gone. As an aquarium does not have the natural self cleaning ability as to rivers, lakes and oceans, you should periodically not only clean, but also sterilize your aquarium.
Feet get quite abuse being trapped in the same shoes day after day for which the micro-pest level becomes high. For a good foot soak, add 1 & 1/2 ounces hydrogen peroxide to 1-gallon water and soak. This will avoid problems before they start. This will prevent athlete's foot and will cure it with repeated foot soaks.
(Note: This level is TOO high for internal consumption. Do NOT swallow!)
This not only kills the bacteria that causes bad breathe and goes a long way to preventing tooth decay, it also has a whitening effect.
Dilute h2o2 on a 1-16 ratio (1 part h2o2 to 16 parts water). This actually is a bit lower than 3% drug store and Walmart h2o2.
DO NOT USE as a mouthwash in higher concentration.
(This is one ounce per 1 pint or 2 cups of water). You can mix this up well in advance and just leave the bottle on the bathroom counter. The contents will remain sterilize due to the sterilizing effect of h2o2. 10 times as effective as alcohol based mouthwashes, plus the whitening effect at a fraction the costs.
Swish it around in your mouth for 1-2 minutes before brushing. Watch how white your teeth eventually become! But do not exceed the concentration!
These ratios are for Pure Health Discounts food grade h2o2 or other LEGITIMATE h2o2.
While you may read materials urging using much higher amounts of h2o2, this is not applicable to h2o2. While it would be in our economic interest to urge higher uses of h2o2 to increase sales, they are a particularly legitimate and ethical company. Many consider Pure Health Discounts THE premier h2o2 company on the consumer and health level for these reasons.
Pure Health Discounts operates in bulk quantity h2o2 and calculates it's smaller quantity prices based upon their bulk purchasing. As their own focus is for internal (oral) usage as a health supplement, they do not play games with quality or concentration levels. Some people are staking their lives on h2o2. This translates into both superior quantity and the best price structure at the consumer level. The more h2o2 we sell, the high bulk quantities then hold the pricing down. Sacrificing quality is not an option, nor is having old stock inventory. Our inventory rotates on less than a 30-day timetable. Sadly, many small-scale sellers buy h2o2 by the gallon, then dilute it and resell it in 1 quart and 1 gallon sizes - usually for more than our h2o2 - to make a profit.
Like all chemicals, there is great discounting in bulk container ordering and production. We then pass bulk quantity savings on to small-volume purchase consumers.
BUT THIS ALSO MEANS YOU SHOULD NOT SURPASS THE DILUTION RATIOS - as our h2o2 is very, very potent in concentrated form.
Because a little goes such a long way, you also save money due to the concentration level. In pre-diluted form, you would to receive dozens of gallons to equal one quart of concentrated form. In short, we figure you are intelligent enough to dilute it yourself.
When was the last time you put a big tablespoon of bleach or ammonia in your glass of water?
Sound nuts, no? But people buy huge amounts of beach and ammonia both of which are toxic in liquid and vapor form.
This fixation on bleach and ammonia is not worldwide and increasingly being rejected in the United States. Bleach and ammonia are bad for you. They are poisonous. H2o2 is not. But there are many uses of h2o2 you might not be aware of - and things you would not dare do with bleach or ammonia. While bleach comes in 1-gallon jugs typically, this also is very diluted.
If you read materials urging higher ratios, it may be because their h2o2 is inferior or they are incompetent.
DO NOT use drug store 2-3% h2o2 for any purposes having to do with food or any potential internal consumption due to high levels of stabilizers - which often include heavy metals.
WHAT ELSE IS OUR HYDROGEN PEROXIDE USED FOR?
Taxidermists use it to sterilize and whiten bones and skulls. We receive many thank you emails from those folks thanking us for no longer having to soak day after day due to the concentration of our h2o2.
We have received emails from people ordering (and then re-ordering) who use it for furniture stripping and lightening wood. It is used for many, many chemical and small-scale manufacturing purposes.
WILL our h2o2 prices remain this low?
For now, yes, but h2o2 is a commodity with traditionally a fairly low price. It is energy intense in production and increasingly regulated. While trace amounts appear temporarily in nature, it is not a substance naturally produced as the source of production.
We receive thank you emails from individuals who have used h2o2 for various reasons every day - for the quality of our h2o2 compared to what they bought before, usually at much higher prices too.
Most people who try h2o2 never buy bleach or ammonia again. Increasingly, the mainstream medical community is embracing h2o2 for numerous purposes. Its fully accepted in Europe and most parts of the world already, h2o2 is one of the fastest growing products on the health market today. Why would anyone buy poisonous bleach and ammonia when h2o2 does the job safely, better, and has far greater possible uses?
You need to be aware the the FDA has not approved of any medical application or usage of hydrogen peroxide. There also are persons within the FDA who oppose AMA licensed doctors using hydrogen peroxide in their medical practice.
PLEASE NOTE: Hydrogen peroxide should NEVER be used for any medical purpose and never ingested or injected into the blood stream unless is it GREATLY reduced. You should NEVER inject hydrogen peroxide in any concentration into your blood stream and doing so will result permanent injury or death. Such direct injection should only be administered by an AMA licensed doctor and then it would be administered in a VERY diluted form. Hydrogen peroxide at any concentration level should NEVER be used for a eye wash, for cleaning ears or as a nasal spray.
There is no established level of safe oral ingesting of hydrogen peroxide, though it has been used in 3% concentration as mouthwash for decades (though not to be swallowed). Any oral consumption of any hydrogen peroxide should only be considered if it is first VERY diluted.
Only as a personal comment and not a health recommendation, my own usage for oral consumption is limited to 1 drop per 2 ounces of water. The is a dilution ratio of 1/ 1,200th as there are 600 drops per ounce. This equates to a concentration of approximately 0.01% hydrogen peroxide.
PLEASE NOTE: 35% concentration hydrogen peroxide should NEVER be used for any medical purpose and never ingested or injected into the blood stream unless is it GREATLY reduced. You should NEVER inject hydrogen peroxide in any concentration into your blood stream and doing so will result permanent injury or death. Such direct injection should only be administered by an AMA licensed doctor and then it would be administered in a VERY diluted form. Hydrogen peroxide at any concentration level should NEVER be used for a eye wash, for cleaning ears or as a nasal spray.
There is no established level of safe oral ingesting of hydrogen peroxide, though it has been used in 3% concentration as mouthwash for decades (though not to be swallowed). Any oral consumption of any hydrogen peroxide should only be considered if it is first diluted.
FOOD GRADE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE SHOULD NEVER BEEN USED FOR DIRECT INJECTION INTO THE BLOOD STREAM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE REGARDLESS OF METHOD OR LEVEL OF CONCENTRATION. No product sold by DFWX or on this web page is usable for direct injection into the blood stream regardless of purpose or concentration. Doing so will result in permanent injury or death.
Only as a personal comment and not a health recommendation, my own usage for oral consumption is limited to 1 drop per 2 ounces of water. This is a dilution ratio of 1/ 1,200th as there are 600 drops per ounce. This equates to a concentration of approximately 0.01% hydrogen peroxide, not 35%. "35%" means the volume is 35% hydrogen peroxide and 65% water. These articles are for information purposes only and is not intended as a substitute for medical advice.

The comments above are my own personal comments and opinions. I do not and can not offer anyone professional medical advise.
There are serious dangers with the misusage of hydrogen peroxide. It should NOT be used as an eye wash, ear wash or nasal spray. Direct injection into the blood stream is so dangerous that this must ONLY be done by an AMA licensed doctor and they use a HIGHLY diluted mixture of hydrogen peroxide and other substances in a process that takes hours. I have personally received AMA licensed doctor administered injection of h2o2 in the past and can not understate that you must NOT do so yourself. Improper injecting of h2o2 directly into the bloodstream will cause permanent and massive injury or death.
In this author's opinion, oral consumption of hydrogen peroxide MUST be HIGHLY diluted. Excessive concentration can cause severe stomach damage and other injury. However, this is true of virtually any substance you would ingest, including virtually all over-the-counter medications and even food. Excessive consumption of food is now the 2nd leading cause of death in the USA.
