How Does Hydrogen Peroxide Work?

Answer

Hydrogen Peroxide is a very weak acid that is often mixed into water and sold at pharmacies and in general stores around the world. Hydrogen Peroxide reacts to a enzyme known as Catalase in the blood and some enzymes found in most bacteria. When it comes in contact with these things, it bubbles and fizzes rapidly, turning the hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen gas, hence the bubbles.
