13. Clean Your Toothbrush

Clean Toothbrush

For something we put in our mouths at least every morning and night, toothbrushes are not something that we normally clean. Toothbrushes usually sit out on the bathroom counter, unsheathed and open to all types of bacteria, including those that come from an open flushing toilet. If you are worried about having a dirty toothbrush, try soaking your toothbrush in a cup of hydrogen peroxide for at least 30 minutes. The soaking should ensure that your toothbrush is clean and ready to go.

12. Get Rid of Earwax

Get Rid of Earwax

Earwax is something that we all have to deal with, but it doesn’t always have to be a problem. Though most earwax can be eliminated by simply using a tissue, there is still hidden earwax that may not be cleared out so easy. Since using q-tips is heavily frowned upon, try adding a few drops of hydrogen peroxide and olive oil to your ear to clear out excessive earwax. You may have to wait a few minutes before it fully liquefies and becomes easy to drain.

11. Purify Your Humidifier


Using a humidifier in your room can provide many benefits, such as better sleeping habits, a soothed throat, and an overall cleaner breathing environment for you to live in. Over time, however, the water in the humidifier can end up containing plenty of harmful bacteria that will end up growing mold in the water and contaminating the air around you instead of purifying it. Luckily, this can easily be fixed by adding a pint of hydrogen peroxide for every gallon of water that ends up in the humidifier.
