    Picked up 2 gallons of hospital grade HO today. Any pet uses for it out of the ordinary?

    From Wiki -
    Hydrogen peroxide is most commonly available as a solution in water. For consumers, it is usually available from pharmacies at 3 and 6 wt% concentrations. The concentrations are sometimes described in terms of the volume of oxygen gas generated; one milliliter of a 20-volume solution generates twenty milliliters of oxygen gas when completely decomposed. For laboratory use, 30 wt% solutions are most common. Commercial grades from 70% to 98% are also available, but due to the potential of solutions of more than 68% hydrogen peroxide to be converted entirely to steam and oxygen (with the temperature of the steam increasing as the concentration increases above 68%) these grades are potentially far more hazardous, and require special care in dedicated storage areas. Buyers must typically allow inspection by commercial manufacturers.

    Your question is valid. I'd be more interested in knowing that the supply at home was medical grade.

    depending on the percentage, chemistry class could lead to the dark side.

    TATP, is good for ear wax removal? After the ear drum removal, you will have no problem with the wax.

    Think I was cheated. Only 1.4 percent. Small bottles you can get are 3%. Should have checked better. By the way--TATP is extremely unstable--not to be played with.

    It is HO treated with Acetone basically. Produces a powerful boomer but is highly subject to movement, temp, etc setting it off. Terrorists use it in the East as it is easily produced using readily available items.

    It is what the Bad Guys were going to use, BEFORE the TSA decided to make all Liquids in carry ons, less than an Oz... Two part Binary Energetic, that is inert until mixed.... Then a Super Super Sensitive Primary Energetic, that NO ONE, in their Right Mind, would use, as it is WAY TO unpredictable, if ANYTHING ELSE WAS AVAILABLE.... NOT for the timid, or in initiated, for sure...
