Alternate Use For Extra Peroxide In Hair Dye Kit For Cleaning
I dye my hair myself and use the remaining paste in the tube for cleaning.
Its main ingredient is peroxide, so I don't have to buy a bottle of hydrogen peroxide separately.
I also use the remaining dye paste to remove mould around the bathroom taps.
Thanks so much for this tip Sonya!
I love being able to find unusual uses for things around the house, and this definitely qualifies as one.
Most of the time we use the 3% hydrogen peroxide that is available in the brown bottle in the first aid aisle at the store.
Using it from the tube it is a much stronger concentration so be careful, but I think it makes great sense to use it for killing mold and mildew on hard surfaces! Just make sure to test it in an inconspicuous spot first to make sure it doesn't harm the surface you're using it on.
Below is another video giving tips for removing bathroom mildew.
Specifically, this video shows how to get rid of the actual unsightly mildew and stains it leaves behind around your shower, and other hard surfaces around your bathroom like tiles.
The video suggests using hot water, the abrasive side of a kitchen sponge, what it calls a "cream cleaner" (such as Soft Scrub), an old toothbrush and elbow grease to get rid of the fungus.
What I think this video is lacking are some suggestions for preventing mildew from forming in your bathroom in the first place, and also how to kill (not just physically remove) the mildew that has developed, so it is less likely to come back.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
