6 Common Household Chemicals that Don’t Play well Together
Often times people think that just because two products work that they will work even better if you combine them. I’m here to tell you today that that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are certain household products and chemicals that when mixed together create nothing but toxic chemical reactions. And even if it doesn’t produce a chemical reaction, you never know what type of effect it will have on the surface you plan to use it on. For your safety, and the safety of those around you, make sure you always read the product label and never mix the following products:
Acetaminophen & Alcohol
Ammonia & Bleach
When mixed together bleach and ammonia can create an extremely toxic gas called chloramine. Similar to mixing bleach and vinegar which we discuss below, this mixture can cause an array of health complications. You may experience shortness of breath and chest pains if exposed to the combination of ammonia and bleach.
Pro Tip : Never mix bleach with anything besides cold water.
