Hydrogen peroxide is: A powerful oxidizer. It bubbles on skin when H2O2 separates into oxygen O and water H2O.

Short periods of exposure have slight antibacterial properties. But long exposure will dry your skin. Rinse with plain water. ...Read more

Is there a DIY recipe for anal bleaching? Is 3% hydrogen peroxide & baking soda ok? I don't wanna damage sensitive skin.
No: There is no reason to bleach an anus (no reason to attempt to alter the color of an anus). Anuses come in various shades, and they are happy to be whatever color they are. It's up to the owner of an anus to also be happy with her anus's color. As long as there is no medical problem, such a a big black mole on the anus, then just leave the anus alone. No good can come from messing with one's anus. ...Read more
