Keep In Its Original Container
The first step to maintaining H2O2 at its peak effectiveness is to leave it in the bottle it arrived in. Transporting it to a new container only increases the risk of contamination. Our team specially designed its packaging and bottle to keep the hydrogen peroxide fresh longer. To further prevent foreign contamination, do not put anything else in this bottle and secure the lid tightly every time you open it. Every time the bottle is open is an opportunity for outside factors to introduce themselves and start exacerbating the decomposition process.
Away From Light & Heat
Isolating the bottle from higher temperatures and bright lights is also important for prolonging the effectiveness of 35% hydrogen peroxide because these factors are another accelerant of decomposition. Possible dark and cool places to store H2O2 are a medicine cabinet or a freezer. These cooler locations have the added bonus of being hidden from confused individuals who may be tempted to ingest the drops.
Separate From These Products
H2O2 interacts poorly with organic compounds, combustibles, strong bases, and salts because these products emanate a higher rate of free particles. To ensure you are storing the bottle in a place that maximizes the lifespan of the drops, do not surround it with these items and keep it off wooden shelves. Wooden shelves can hasten the speed of decomposition because they create more loose contaminants that can enter the bottle.
Out of Sight
If you live with children and pets, keep your 35% hydrogen peroxide hidden away because they may confuse it for a beverage. This is a hazard because H2O2 can be toxic if ingested, so The One Minute Miracle does not recommend storing it in your refrigerator.
