     If you're going to try distilling H2O2, you might as well start with
the stuff sold for bleaching hair, which is a 6% soln, instead of the
sterilizing stuff which is 3%.  I bought lots of it long ago when I was 
making O2/combustible_material explosives and hadn't yet discovered 
Solidox pellets; mix in a bit manganese dioxide (cheaply obtained from
dead carbon-zinc cells) and it liberates quite a bit of O2.  The clerks 
at the grocery store looked at me funny, perhaps because I kept buying the
stuff but never showed up with blond hair.
