Oxygen is the most abundant element on earth, comprising 45.6% of 
the earth's crust and 20.95% of dry air, and is one of the most 
vital elements to support life for plants. animals, and man. 
Hydrogen peroxide has been sold in drug and grocery stores for 
many years as an antiseptic and a bleach.

It has not been approved for human consumption by the FDA or 
medical profession but has many uses in homes, farms, and gardens.

To make a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution using 35% hydrogen 
peroxide, mix 1 ounce of 35% into 11 ounces distilled water.  This 
makes 3/4 pint of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution.

CAUTION:  If you spill 35% hydrogen peroxide on your skin, rinse 
immediately with warm water.  Avoid any contact with eyes.  It 
must be handled with great care and respect.  When kept in 
refrigerator, mark clearly and do not mistake for water.

Pure 3% hydrogen peroxide may be added to chilled water for 
washing chicken or other poultry and beef or pork.  This process 
will destroy salmonella bacteria.

hydrogen peroxide to a sink full of cold water.  Wash vegetables 
thoroughly, rinse, and drain.  Use immediately or pat dry and 
store. If time is a problem, spray with straight 3% hydrogen 
peroxide, rinse with cold water, and drain.  This process prolongs 

IN THE DISHWASHER OR DISHWATER:  Add 2 ounces of 3% hydrogen 
peroxide to your regular washing formula.  Your glasses will 

MARINADE:  Place meat, fish. or poultry in a casserole.  (Avoid 
using aluminum pans.)  Cover with a diluted solution of 3% 
hydrogen peroxide.  Place loosely in covered container in 
refrigerator for 1/2 hour.  Rinse and cook.

LEFTOVER TOSSED SALAD:  Spray with a solution of 1/2 cup water and 
one tablespoon 3% hydrogen peroxide.  Drain, cover, and 
refrigerate. This eliminates use of chemical preservatives.

TO FRESHEN KITCHEN:  Keep a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide in 
the kitchen.  Use to wipe off counter tops and appliances.  It 
will disinfect and give the kitchen a clean, fresh smell.  This 
process works great in the refrigerator and children's lunch 

HUMIDIFIERS/STEAMERS:  Use one pint 3% hydrogen peroxide to a 
gallon of water.  Helps keep them clean, too.

TURKEYS: A number of turkey raisers throughout the U.S. and Canada 
are using hydrogen peroxide in their drinking water.  A turkey 
raiser in Canada put 20,000 turkeys on hydrogen peroxide.  In the 
same growing time, they average 1.5 pounds more per bird, used 
8.5% less feed and the mortality rate went down.

In Missouri, a turkey raiser took his turkeys from chicks to 
market without any medication or antibiotics.  One of the head 
veterinarians of the State of Missouri was asked about the use of 
hydrogen peroxide in the drinking water of turkeys.  His comment 
was, "It's only water and oxygen and cannot hurt them.  It will 
not show up in the chemical residue test." This same farmer was 
awarded the Grower of the Month award.

A turkey grower in Wisconsin reported after using hydrogen 
peroxide on his turkeys, that his chemical residue test came back 
with zero chemical residue.


FOLIAR FEED:  To foliar feed crops, put 16 oz. of 35% food-grade 
hydrogen peroxide into 20 gallons of water. This is sufficient for 
one acre.  Spray on plants early in the morning, while the plant 
pores are open.

SEED GERMINATION: To germinate seeds put one ounce of hydrogen 
peroxide into a pint of distilled water.  Soak the seeds for 8 
hours. An experiment was done soaking old wheat seed with the 
solution.  The hydrogen peroxide treated seeds germinated at a 
rate of 90% while the controlled seeds germinated at a rate of 

INSECTICIDE:  Use hydrogen peroxide as an insecticide by mixing ~ 
8 ounces or more of 35% hydrogen peroxide to 1 gallon of water 
with 8 ounces of molasses or white sugar. It has been found that 
blackstrap molasses works better than sugar. It seems to adhere to 
the plant better.

HOUSE AND GARDEN PLANTS:  Put 1 oz. of 3% hydrogen peroxide into a 
quart of water (or add 16 drops 35% to 1 quart of water).  Water 
or mist plants with this solution.

ORCHARDS: Orchard owners are watering the ground around the trees 
using 6 - 8 oz. of 3% to a gallon of water, and also using it as a 
spray.  It has been reported that a pear tree that never bore 
fruit is now bearing fruit after treatment.

RICE PADDIES:  In Japan, non-productive rice paddies were treated 
with hydrogen peroxide and now rice is once again being grown on 
the paddies.


Hydrogen peroxide is being used to disinfect water at fish farms 
so as to reduce the fungal growth on fish.  Hydrogen peroxide is 
being put in the make-up water at the rate of 5 ppm.  Tropical 
fish raisers have found that adding 1 oz. of 35% food grade 
hydrogen peroxide to 20 gallons of water is sufficient. As a 
precaution, do not exceed this amount.  Where a little is good, 
more is not necessarily better.
