Bleach And Rubbing Alcohol
Bleach doesn’t go well with any chemicals, and rubbing alcohol is included in that long list. The reason for this? Mixing these chemicals creates chloroform. Other toxic compounds can be hazardous if accidentally ingested, and can damage your liver, eyes, and lungs. It also makes peracetic and peroxyacetic acid, which is corrosive and can damage your eyes. Vy Dong Ph.D. said, “Chloroform can be used to knock people unconscious, and it is suspected to cause cancer. Chloroacetone is no better, having been used as tear gas in World War I.” Avoid making these chemicals in your own home, especially if you have children. There’s no reason to combine these two anyway, so you’ll likely never find yourself in this position (DPH).
