I keep ramshorn snails in all my tanks. Do yours eat specific plants? Mine dont seem to cause any damage to mine and i generally would not expect them to harm healthy tissue. In fact, i recommend their use! Damage may be a symptom of already dying leaves.

For dipping plants to kill snails and their eggs, See KRIB FAQ -- Potassium permanganate and Alum are suggested. KRIB FAQ on Snails I would be surprised if hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) would be strong enough to kill the eggs in dilute solution and i would be concerned that a concentrated soak would hurt the plants.
