    Oxygene is a natural antiseptic so one of its most common uses is to clean wounds to prevent infection.

    In order to achieve naturally lightened hair from the sun, simply spray it on damp hair and let it soak in for 10 – 15 minutes before rinsing.
  3. Toothpaste for teeth whitening
    Mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to make a homemade toothpaste that you use for a short time (up to 5 days) to remove stains from your teeth.

Always be cautious as the liquid in large quantities as well as its vapors can cause skin and lung burns. Also, be especially cautious not to swallow it when it comes to oral use. Ingesting can be harmful to your health and cause dizziness, nausea, vomiting and (in large enough quantities) even death. Hydrogen peroxide is only suitable for external use!
