    What concentration for Hydrogen Peroxide would you say is good. I once washed my mouth out with the stuff straight from the bottle, I swear my gums felt burned for two days.

    May I ask what the strength the hydrogen peroxide solution is recommended?

    I believe 3% peroxide is what's used. I'm sure someone else will come along to confirm that.

    Got the bottle in front of me now. 3%Hydrogen Peroxide is the only active ingrediant, the inactive ingrediant is purified water. Use it straight out of the bottle, and let it soak until the fizzing stops.
