Although it looks like water, hydrogen peroxide is much more different in content and is richer in oxygen.  If brought to a boiling point, hydrogen peroxide is bound to explode.

In households around the world, a milder and more diluted version of hydrogen peroxide is used. The general chemical we use at home is normally present from 3 to 5 percent.
