Was it diluted? I can't imagine straight bleach not being toxic. And to answer your question, fortunately no.

Handful of time.

Eating tums, toothpaste and I'm sure other things.

Eating toothpast = a glass of cow milk or couple slices of cheese and all is well. Tummy may be upset but nothingto worry about.

Once. Took the bottle of spray baby lotion and sprayed it in his mouth. He threw up because of his gag reflex back then. They said he would be fine.

I can only remember once. He swallowed the flouride mouth wash instead of spitting it out. Poison control said to have him eat a piece of cheese.

right. It says on it that it is harmful. I use concentrated bleach too. The gal said bleach is not toxic. If watered down it is nearly always safe. I repeated back to her that she said it was non-toxic she said that was right. At most it will cause irritation in the persons throat and stomach.

My youngest has eaten half of a bottle of Singular and the plastic beads inside the medication bottle. 

He litterly climbed into the fridge and downed some cough medication. The earned us a trip to the ER and some charcoal.

and yesterday a mouthful of bleach water. 

BTW those plastic beads totally safe to eat. He was 2yo at the time and she said that it would take tons of them to make someone ill.
