Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound with many uses. These uses include bleaching hair, removing pollutants from the air and producing food. In addition, hydrogen peroxide can be used as a water disinfectant. Inhaling hydrogen peroxide can cause lung problems and the effect of chronic exposure to hydrogen peroxide is not yet known. Consequently, using hydrogen peroxide as a water disinfectant is generally considered a last resort in emergency situations.

Use a measuring cup to measure out 1/8 of a cup of hydrogen peroxide.

Pour 1 gallon of untreated water into a pot.

Mix 1/8 of a cup of hydrogen peroxide into 1 gallon of water in the pot and stir well.

Store the water in a clean, durable container and drink it within six months.
