Scared about peroxide mouth wash
« on: January 07, 2014, 05:39:16 PM »
Ok so I used some hydrogen peroxide (3%) over the counter solution as a mouthwash. I took a mouthfull of water and added just a squirt to it, less than a teaspoon probably. I gargled and swished with it, I did this twice and the second time I swallowed maybe less than a 10th of the mouthful, if I even did at all I really couldn't tell. I drank two other bottles of water quickly after and called poison control and the said as long as I didn't vomit twice or more not to worry.

I am still freaking out as I read the safety sheet and it said that in vitro it can damage DNA

People have gargled with mouthwash for years. You are 100% fine.

Peroxide is commonly used as a mouth rinse/gargle. If there was that much of a risk, they wouldn't even suggest you do it. Just don't chug from the bottle. You're good!

My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.
