How to make silver hydrogen peroxide
Simply clean tarnished stainless steel cutlery
We were clearing our medicine cabinet when a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide fell into our hands. We bought it to clean wounds, but didn't use it.
I thought about what else could be done with it. I already had a few ideas and did a little research on the Internet. We also had our stainless steel cutlery. This was now a bit old, still in good condition, but also partly tarnished / discolored a bit brown.
Pictures 2 + 3 show pieces of cutlery with discoloration. All other pictures were taken after cleaning. Unfortunately you can't see how clean it got, but it worked really well.
To the tip:
- Fill hydrogen peroxide 3% into a spray bottle (I used a funnel for this).
- Put the cutlery in a bowl or other container.
- Spray the cutlery well on all sides with the hydrogen peroxide 3%, wait 3-5 minutes and let it take effect, then polish with a soft cloth. You could see directly on the cloth how the deposits came off. In the case of stronger discolouration, simply leave the whole thing to act a little longer.
If you do not want to get the hydrogen peroxide on your skin, you can put on gloves, but this is not absolutely necessary with a 3% solution. However, it must not come into contact with the mucous membranes and eyes.
I had originally read that hydrogen peroxide is particularly suitable for cleaning old silver cutlery.
As an aside, because I found it very interesting, hydrogen peroxide (the concentration can also be higher here) is very versatile:
Hydrogen peroxide was introduced into therapy around 130 years ago. It was discovered about 180 years ago.
- It has a disinfectant effect, has been proven to kill germs, bacteria and viruses and can also be used in the household for cleaning.
- In hospitals it is also used for wound healing (antiseptic) and it is used in dentistry.
- It can be used as a bleaching agent, works well against mold, is used for bleaching and dyeing hair, among other things.
- There are good informative books about it, but there is also a lot of interesting information about it on the Internet, I found it all quite exciting. Originally I only knew hydrogen peroxide (3% solution) from the hospital.
- Hydrogen peroxide (3% solution) can be obtained relatively cheaply in pharmacies.
I think I'll use it more for cleaning in the future and read more about it.
