I still remember how much I hated getting cuts and scrapes as a kid…because they meant my mom would douse the spots with hydrogen peroxide and that arguably hurt more!

But it also always did the trick. Since hydrogen peroxide does expire — you should get rid of it six months after opening — it can be tough to use the entire bottle up on just bumps and cuts. Then again, if you know all of these awesome uses for the fizzy liquid, you'll find yourself going through bottle after bottle. This stuff is so useful!

First, for easy application, consider getting a spray bottle top for your hydrogen peroxide.
