I Never Knew You Could Do So Many Things With Hydrogen Peroxide

I still remember how much I detested get cuts and scrapings as a kid…because they meant my mom would douse the places 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 only bumps and cuts. Then again, if you know all of these awesome employs 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.

1. Devote your dishwasher cleanser a boost by adding a splash of hydrogen peroxide to it.

2. Make elephant toothpaste with your kids.

3. Got gunk in your ears? Clean them out with a fell or two of hydrogen peroxide.

4. Get rid of dry, cracked heels by soaking your feet in a hydrogen peroxide and hot water bath for 30 minutes.

Dry them off and scrub with a pumice stone to easily remove the dead skin.

5. Clean off burnt-on food and grease stains with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.

6. Disinfect your makeup brushes with baby shampoo and some hydrogen peroxide.

7. Hate the yellow cavity stain marks on your white shirts? Some hydrogen peroxide and dish soap get rid of them!

8. Spot clean carpets with a mix of water, hydrogen peroxide, and lemon essential oil.

Here are the details.

9. Watering your plants with one ounce of hydrogen peroxide to every two beakers of water is super good for them. Here’s why.

10. Don’t only rinse your fruits and veggies — make sure you’re really cleaning them by spraying with some hydrogen peroxide.

11. Keep leftover salad from spoiling and wilting by spraying it with a half beaker of water and a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide.

12. Run some hydrogen peroxide over your toothbrush to clean it.

13. You can also build toothpaste from hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.

14. Pour a half cup of hydrogen peroxide into your toilet bowl, let it sit for 20 minutes, and scrub it clean.

15. Spray down your rain after every employ with some hydrogen peroxide. It’ll disinfect and keep your grout white.

16. Get rid of acne and acne scars with hydrogen peroxide.

17. Spray pennies or other copper pieces with hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, and salt to give them an antique look.

Well there you have it — stop simply utilizing it on your cuts and start using it all around your home!

Can we secure the internet of things in time to prevent another cyber-attack?

Easy-to-hijack smart devices just crashed some of the worlds biggest online platforms. Experts say its a wake-up call to improve security and quickly

Can the world wide web survive the internet of things? Its a question many are asking after a vast attack on US and European internet structure last week, likely led by smart DVR players and webcams, that has left the tech industry reeling.

And according to experts, unless hardware and software producers band together to improve the security of the open internet and quickly more assaults are imminent.

The attack on the internet infrastructure provider Dyn took down sites including Netflix, Facebook, Twitter and the Guardian last week. Dan Kaminsky, lead scientist for the cybersecurity firm White Ops, said the incident should force the tech industry to take a more serious look at its networks.

Back in 2008, Kaminsky discovered a serious vulnerability in the domain name system( DNS) the way computers name sites on the internet that became known as the Kaminsky bug. Since uncovering and helping to mend that flaw, he has spoken regularly about the need for broad and free security measures online.

Millennials stand apart from other Americans in preferring faster Internet access to safer Internet access, according to a new survey.

When digital-authentication firm SecureAuth asked people from all age groups whether they would rather be safer online or browse faster online, 57 percent of Americans chose security and 43 percent chose speed. But among millennials, the results were almost reversed: 54 percent chose speed over security.

Surprisingly, most millennials dont think theyre at risk, SecureAuth CEO Craig Lund said in a statement to the Daily Dot. They have grown up being so connected on so many social media sites, it never occurred to them that the danger is out therenot to mention that the preference for being connected and involved can often take precedence over the potential risk.

Young people are also more willing than the overall population to share sensitive information over public Wi-Fi connections, which are notoriously insecure as they allow anyone on the network to analyze and intercept passing traffic. While a clear majority (57 percent) of Americans told SecureAuth that they transmitted such information over public Wi-Fi, nearly eight in 10 (78 percent) of millennials said they did so.

The SecureAuth survey’s findings track with other data on millennials’ cybersecurity knowledge and behavior. A surprising 44 percent of millennials believe their data is generally safe from hackers, and millennials are more likely than members of other age groups to share account passwords with friends.

There are new stories of breaches almost every day and millennials need to understand that the actions they take online have serious ramifications, said Lund. Attackers will go after everything from credit card information to health care recordsonce millennials understand this risk, we can work together so that being connected and secure arent mutually exclusive.

Americans overall are paying more attention to some aspects of digital security. An October 2015 study by the wireless industry’s trade group found that 61 percent of Americans use passwords on their smartphones and 58 percent use them on their tablets, compared to 50 percent and 48 percent, respectively, in 2012.

The most common piece of personal information that Americans filled out online while using public Wi-Fi was their street address, followed by their credit card and their account passwords.

Unsurprisingly, given the nature and focus of online harassment and stalking, women value security over speed by a wider margin than do men, with a 24-percentage-point split (62 percent for security versus 38 percent for speed), compared to a 2-percentage-point split among men (51 percent versus 49 percent).
