Danger: Never Mix these Cleaning Products

When you’re faced with a tough cleaning job, it’s tempting to get creative with your cleaning products, however, mixing cleaning products can be quite dangerous. Here is a list of cleaning products you shouldn’t mix together.

Baking soda and white vinegar: Combining white vinegar and baking soda creates a chemical reaction that causes the solution to bubble and foam. Although combining these products in an open basin, such as a sink, is fine, combining these products in a closed container can cause a build-up of pressure, that when agitated, can cause the container to combust.

Hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar: Combining these two products in a container creates a corrosive acid that can be toxic and cause irritation to your skin and eyes and have a negative effect on your breathing.

Bleach and white vinegar: Combining these two products will release toxic chlorine and chloramine vapors which can cause chemical burns to your eyes and lungs.

Bleach and ammonia: Combining these two products produces toxic chloramine vapors that can cause throat burns and overall respiratory complications.

Two different drain cleaners: Never mix two different drain cleaners or use one product right after the other. Mixing two drain cleaners can release toxic chemicals that can be harmful to your health.
