Cut off cold water supply to the water heater. Turn off power to the water heater. Open a hot tap somewhere to act as a vent. Drain the water heater. Screw a short hose (washing machine hose) onto the drain. Using a funnel add peroxide. Follow with some water to get all the peroxide into the water heater. Close the drain. Refill the water heater. Turn on the power.

If you get a hose longer than the water heater is tall and keep the end of the hose above the top of the water heater, then you will only need to drain a couple of gallons out of the tank rather than draining the whole tank.
