I was curious to see whether 3% hydrogen peroxide can be used as antimicrobial and virucidal product for daily use in home. There are several disinfecting products in the market claim that use of these wipes for some minutes can disinfect the hard surface. Also, there are quite a few ethyl alcohol based hand sanitizers. Can 3% hydrogen peroxide be used as effective disinfectant and antiseptic - similar efficacy with those of the commercial disinfecting products?
Website https://www.cdc.gov/hicpac/Disinfection_Sterilization/7_0formaldehyde.html discuss use of hydrogen peroxide against a wide range of pathogens. I found that the bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide lists it as antiseptic - to use for gargle etc. Can 3% hydrogen peroxide be used as a disinfectant for a broad spectrum of microbes?
