Bleach with Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Share Your Story: Accidental Poisonings

By Stefan

What I Did:

Mix Bleach with Toilet Bowl Cleaner

How I Did It:

I was cleaning the toilet, so i thought that adding bleach to the toilet while the toilet bowl cleaner was in there, almost instantaneously, i saw foam coming out of where the two components mixed, and a fowl, strong smell of some kind of cleaner came out of this combination, which i later learned was Chloramine Gas Fumes, a highly toxic fume that comes from the mixture of sodium hypochlorite(bleach) and acidic toilet bowl cleaner.

Lessons Learned

  • Do not mix Bleach with toilet bowl cleaner *thinks* Maybe i should try it with ammonia ;) JOKING - Seriously, don't do that.
