Im a newlywed wife. I know this was stupid but i swear to god i didnt know. I mixed ammonia and bleach last nigh to mop the floors and the fumes were horrible and i felt dizzy so i immediately panicked and opened windows and walked outside for fresh air. Anyway i poured the stuff down the sink and went to bed. This morning i woke up with a sore throat and my hands are really dry. I googled it and was like holy cow what did i just do. Im debating on going to the hospital but my family days i should be fine so i want to know if any of you ladies have had a similar experience? And what did you do. Any long term effects?

You just burn the mucosa by the mustard gas you made. I dont think the effects are permanent but cant be 100% sure.

You'll be fine. Screw bleach... Use vinegar.

OH MY GOD!  You could have made hydrazine!!!

Mr. Lemon.  $1 at Dollar General from now on.  No more mixing bleach and ammonia!

And it doesn't make mustard gas.  It makes chloramine gas, which is a very toxic and irritating gas.
