Thread: peroxide.. Hmmm

  1. #1

    peroxide.. Hmmm

    Well i have been looking for some peroxide for the last few weeks and have been into boots looking sheepish at hair dyes. I asked behind the counter and the only thing they had was mouth wash.. hmm, well i googled peroxide and found a chemicals company who sell the stuff.. They had 35% peroxide for sale.. great i thought, that will do the job!

    I should have twigged when i opened the box and inside was 2.5lt container which had leaked and melter the polystyrene packing! without thinking i got it all over my hands and they promptly turned white!

    Anyways, it faded after a few hours.. I did one roe skull in 3h flat with it, will post pics later but while removing the cotton wool (with 2 pairs of surgical gloves) the peroxide got through the gloves without me knowing... this time my fingers were burning and they again went white..

    My fingers have now gone back to normal but are a bit sore.. Just thought i would share my experience to save anyone else the same problem!

    PS: its the dogs danglies for doing skulls!! Ive got a few jaw bones ive been saving to do next, as i say pics to follow!

    Looking forward to the pics, have you got any of your hands?

    was just thinking that, unfortunately no.. it looks and feels similar to when you burn yourself on an iron, no redness or swelling, just goes white and burns.. when the burning and whiteness stop, it definitely feels like a burn.. which i suppose is obvious as its a chemical burn?

    Its better to use marrigolds. Look for hair salon supplies online and try to pass yourself off as a hairdresser as I don't think they are supposed to sell outside the trade.You can get it in cream form and more liquid form. I have been using 40% liquid recently with lots of cotton wool.

    I just buy the over the counter stuff from a chemists shop. It's only a quid or so, and, whilst not the mega concentrations of some of the specialist stuff, it does the job, with the added bonus of not destroying the skin on your hands (though my fingers do go a little white)

    did you buy it from apcpure? I got 35% HP off them on ebay and it works a TREAT! F*** BOOTS and all their investigative questions over some measly 9% mouthwash! LOL...

    yes, have had my hands turned white many times! never bothered with gloves,,,probably should

    You need nitrile gloves as the peroxide breaks down the proteins in the latex

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.
