Suggestion/question: Using Hydrogen Peroxide as sterilizer

I have read various posts here involving sick fish, equipment, and questions about sterilizing (or as close to it) of equipment without using damaging chemicals.

How about food grade hydrogen peroxide? I have a gallon container of it which is 35%... yes, that is right. thirty-five percent!!

I am using very strong concentrations of it on buckets, equipment that have come in contact with 'sick' water, tanks, etc. Since it is water on steroids, I think it would be very easy to rinse off. I just don't know how efficacious it is in killing 'bugs', parasites, and whatnot.

Any input would be appreciated.
