It can readily be reduced.
H2O2 the extra oxygen is very and easily decomposes, in sunlight or just by leaving the lid off the bottle. It is used for the treatment of scratches and anywhere the skin is damaged. It is a greater germ killer and is harmless and painless.Source(s): Teacher

Oxidizes -- it's all about the electrons..
