Mixing household cleaners can become toxic
Today’s Video of the Day from the American Chemical Society describes how mixing household cleaners can become poisonous.
The most common mistake is made when different cleaners are used on the same surface, such as a toilet.
For example, the combination of bleach and ammonia can form a toxic gas called chloramine. Bleach and alcohol mix to form even more dangerous chemicals, including hydrochloric acid or chloroform.
