Chlorine Bleach – Can Turn Home Into Danger Zone

You clean your home to make it a safer more enjoyable place to be…right?

chlorine For decades, consumers have mistakenly equated chlorine bleach with words like “clean” and “safe”. But the reality is frighteningly car from it. One of the first ingredients used to create chemical weapons was chlorine during the Second Battle of Ypres, on April 22, 1915 in WW1.

The lethal chemical is still used in warfare today, with insurgents of the Iraq war making bombs out of giant tanks of chlorine.

Unfortunately, this lethal gas can also be created by accident when you unwittingly mix chlorine-based cleaning products with other common cleaning agents.

And it isn’t always mixing two cleaners, together, sometimes it’s simply residue from a past cleaner that reacts with the chlorine-based product.

In 2011, 152 workers were hospitalized due to exposure from chlorine gas after someone poured chlorine bleach into a container previously used with another cleaning solution.
