FYI- Or did I forget about ammonia and bleach?

I put it on the lady's question asking about the maggots, isn't it ammonia and bleach that can make lethal fumes? If I am wrong, I need to delete.
If I am wrong what are the 2 cleaning products you are never supposed to mix? I don't want to kill us on accident, LOL!

  • Yeah, that's a big No-No. Since she said it was in her garage, hopefully her garage is not attached to her house & can be easily aired out. I remember reading the book "The Boy Called IT" and his mother did that to him & locked him in the bathroom. How that poor child survived the constant torture of his abusive mother is beyond me- but that's a whole other story. Sorry, not trying to derail. :p

  • I had that happen to me as well, in an enclosed shower ina basement bathroom. It will definitely make you beg for your next breath. Those two substances should be kept well away from each other.

  • You should not combine any cleaning products but ammonia and bleach are definitely bad news.
