    Hydrogen Peroxide - Where to buy? 22nd Sep 08 at 1:06 PM
    I'm looking to buy some 3% hydrogen peroxide to remove a blood stain dried on leather... I went to the chemist to be told they don't sell it (it's a bomb making ingredient apparently so I'm guessing that's why)... I only want about half a thimble full - anybody any ideas where else sells it?

    I has a really painful mouth recently and was using hydrogen peroxide diluted as a mouthwash. I bought mine from my local independant chemist who had no qualms at all about selling it to me, perhaps because they have known me since I was a youngster.:confused:

    It was a Boots I asked in. I know it's used in hair bleaching kits... and they use 30% or so... way stronger than I want to buy.

    Stupid chemists. All this "war on terror" paranoia has gone way to far. Peroxide is useful for all sorts of things and is ideal when you need the cleaning/sanitizing effect of chlorine bleach but without the bleach smell.

    I bought a bottle recently from a Tesco pharmacy - it is a 3% solution suitable for use as a mild skin disinfectant, mouthwash or gargle.

    You could go in with the bloodstained item and ask if they would sell you enough to treat it in front of them. On the other hand...blood stained leather might freak them out even more, eh?

    Buy it at Boots
    I just bought a 200ml bottle of 6% Hydrogen Peroxide from the pharmacy counter at my local Boots store in Weston-super-Mare. The lady who served said she would check the "highly flammable" cabinet in the store room and returned a few minutes later with the bottle.

    There was no quizzing or raising of eyebrows and best of all it only cost 99p which is a lot cheaper than the red wine stain removers sold in the local supermarkets.

    according to my hairdresser its the 18% that has been banned or is hard to get a hold of as that is what was used in the London bombings.

    I get mine in Superdrug. I use it for all sorts of things (but not the bomb making).

    Sorry, I've had to remove a post as it gives medical advice.

    Hi, Martinís asked me to post this: Sorry, giving or asking for medical advice is not permitted on this forum as itís not what this site is about. While discussing medical insurance policies, cheaper ways to see consultants, cashback for alternative health treatments and how to get specific medication cheaper (legally) are all perfectly acceptable we ask you specifically not to discuss what to do in the event of certain medical problems (please see this rule on the Health Board). If you have any questions about this policy please email forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com.

    sorry if its late
    do you guys know if this would remove a captain morgan's dark rum stains from a white river island t-shirt and/or a grey superdry hoodie?

    Thanks for any help haha. Just confused.
    Also I hear hydrogen peroxide whitens teeth, how would one go about doing that?

    I got some on Amazon uk recently. If it is 6% and you want 3%,just dilute it half water to half chemical and it is 3%.
