Hydrogen peroxide is a widely used and relatively weak oxidising acid. Most hydrogen peroxide solutions are virtually colourless in appearance, apart from the most concentrated forms, which are a very pale blue colour.
Hydrogen peroxide is regularly used in cleaning products and specifically as a bleaching agent. In higher concentrations it can be quite hazardous and should be handled with care only by competent persons. One of the largest uses for hydrogen peroxide is in the paper manufacturing industry for bleaching paper.
As it is non chlorine-based, hydrogen peroxide is better for the environment than chlorine-based bleaches, such as hydrogen chloride. It is also odourless, so unlike chlorine based bleach it does not give off a chlorine smell.
