Genius mom right here!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm such a genius!  Without even thinking, I went into the kids bathroom and poured bleach into an unflushed toilet...who knows how long the urea has been in there breaking down into ammonia.  SO DUMB!!!!!  Luckily I always hold my breath when I pour bleach and run out afterwards because I don't like breathing it in.  However, the bubbling water sparked my curiosity...until my eyes started burning and I realized what was happening.  LOL!  I'm pretty sure I'm fine and only breathed in a very small amount of the toxic fumes.  It just so happens to be a windy day, so I opened the windows and told the kids not to go near that bathroom for awhile.  I wonder how long it will take for the fumes to dissipate...any guesses?  There are no windows in that bathroom  unfortunately.  :( 

Oh, and this turned into a graet impromptu chemistry lesson for the kids.  They are quite interested in learning more about chemical reactions now!
