Word! Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide

(En español: Peróxido de hidrógeno)

Say: hy-dro-jen puh-rok-side

Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical that can clean your cuts and scrapes. When it's poured on a cut, it bubbles a little, making oxygen and killing germs. Your parent also may use it to clear earwax from your ear.
