I kill every plant I try to grow, but growing things in my toilet?  That's where I'm a viking.

farking Tilex, man. No matter how many windows I open, extra fans I turn on, that shiat makes me feel like I've been huffing ignited napalm. Too bad its the only thing that really gets the job done.

Poppycock.

I just wanted to use that word..  Thank god I only smoke tobacco or I might have to worry about that COPD thing.

If I use straight/diluted bleach for cleaning, my cats act like I've spread catnip everywhere, I'm pretty sure they get high from it.  That can't be healthy for their already tiny brains, but my inner-teenager says "Hey, you can probably catch a buzz from that too".

as much as huffing ignited napalm sounds like fun perhaps it's time to buy a respirator.

Chlorine bleach is friggin evil.  At least the chlorine part. Which is pretty much the whole part.

Last summer I opened a plastic tub of pool pucks and got a fairly minor whiff of concentrated vapour. Almost 2 days in hospital with every breath sheer hacking agony for about 24 hours straight. The first 20 minutes or so was so bad it was the only time in my life I thought I might actually be dying. The Doctor said any lung tissue that was scarred by the chlorine is gone forever.

We don't use bleach anymore.

I used to get whiffs of chlorine pucks and concentrate boy at my home pool and school pool. Might have burned my nose and made my eyes water, but I've never gotten to this level. You sure you didn't mix them with ammonia?

Water is in the toilet for a reason. That's why you keep killing them. Plants crave electrolytes. It even says so on the label.

Or get with the current century.  Use those pre-moistened lysol wipes with a solution of like 99.99996% water and .00004% something mildly antiseptic.  Instead of poring from a jug of chlorine.

Ha!  Since the divorce, I've learned that I can let it just turn black before I'm forced to clean it because the growth keeps tickling my balls.

Everybody knows that the ideal toilet cleaning combination is bleach and ammonia. It will get the toilet nice and clean and afterwards you will probably not be around to care anyway...

Just make sure you flush all the bleach down, don't want to wake up in the morning and take one of those super strong beer pisses, and cause a chemical reaction.

Wowzers!

I remember I once worked for a mold abatement company(?) We used what's called "outdoor bleach"(what I would call "super bleach") to spray houses for mold.  Even with a Tyvek suit and respirator on, my shirt would look mono tye-die and my lungs would feel super fuzzy.  Needless to say, I didn't last long there.

I don't know what was worse, the chlorine or the giant bumps of yip the manager would share with us at the end of the day.

Bleach?  Doesn't get out the red stains from the well water.  And 'iron-out' sorta works.
But muriatic acid?  That shiat works!

Concentrated chlorine was one of the things armies were throwing at each other about a hundred years ago.
 
2017-09-13 06:33:11 AM  
The article was about all kinds of cleaning chemicals, not just bleach. I use it, but mostly I use the basics: Comet, vinegar, ammonia. Bleach for things that need to be bleached. Comet is the best thing in the toilet--any of those other stains, just ignore them. It's a farking toilet. Do you want to die over a toilet ring?
 
2017-09-13 06:59:09 AM  
chlorine bleach is not chlorine gas duhhh...

BTW it is the oxygen in it that does the bleaching.  As for the war references a 50% bleach solution is what they use to neutralize nerve gases
 
2017-09-13 08:05:48 AM  
Maybe don't sterilize every surface in your home? A squirt of dish  soap in the bowl, vinegar to wipe the seat and lid. Occasionally I use  homemade cleaning wipes - baby wipes with rubbing alcohol. I almost never clean with bleach, and when I do, it's quite diluted.
 
2017-09-13 08:12:16 AM  
I have one relative who is constantly bleaching and Lysol-ing every surface of her home, because her children are sickly. They all have allergies to pretty much everything, and no immune system to speak of. I don't have the heart to tell her that she did this to them, by raising them in a surgically sterile environment, and making them scrub their hands as soon as they come in the door from outside.

You're welcome, my kids.

Very sure.  They were just solid bricks of pool chlorine that had been sealed in a small tub.  I figure the very warm weather caused a bit of a buildup of chlorine gas and when I opened it (it was tightly closed so I kind of bent right in there to twist the lid hard) I got it full in the face.  We now use Bromine.

when i worked for a lab that tested blood for diseases by amplifying key nucleotide sequences... we had to bleach every counter and floor at the end of each shift. protocol was 10% household bleach in DI. Or basically a gallon of bleach in the mop bucket and fill the rest with water. every surface was supposed to stay wet for 10-15 minutes before being wiped with clean water. It was a negative pressure facility, so there were fans on making it evaporate rapidly, which meant everything was SOAKED and it was all serious bleach vapor. spent 5 years doing that. my lungs aren't the same.

CSB. when i was young i worked at a pet store. somebody had left the rat tanks too long between cleanings. I wasn't thinking about the fact that rats pee a huge amount of ammonia. Our tank cleaner was bleach based. i thought about it AFTER i started gagging, coughing, and getting dizzy.

What were the safety procedures in place for that?  Respirators?  Proper ventilation?  There are rules for using dangerous chemicals, and OSHA regulations on top of those.

surprisingly, no. because they were household cleaning agents used at the same concentration as used in households, they weren't really covered. Just like "small" blood spills weren't hazardous and didn't require special cleanup if they were 1-2 kleenex level stuff instead of shop rags and bucket level.
The lab was under FDA consent decree at the time, so as far as I know, all OSHA regs were complied with. though some of the compliance was questionable and might not have held up under scrutiny.

Yeah, I would have not been a happy camper with that set-up.

ArthurVandelay: Either would have quit, or purchased my own PPE specific for what I was worried about.


considered that, but we found "workarounds" such as waiting until the last possible minute and leaving the fumes for the next shift. of course the shift before us did the same thing. we ended up doing all of our training/prep/email/etc outside the "lab" to delay going in until the stank passed. Still though, "tolerable" doesn't necessarily mean "safe" for daily exposure.

oh spare me the idiocy of another "being clean is bad" thread. If you still ried from now til eternity to "sterilize" your filthy homes, they and you would still be teeming with pathogens. The world is made of pathogens. It would not be humanly possible to get your homes or your filthy bodies clean enough for you to be "harmed" by "too much clean". This article is about morons who use concentrated bleach in unventilated areas and make themselves cough, because they're morons.

Dog saliva carries at least three common pathogens that present like colds/flu/strep throat when a human ingests them. That's why people who are too close to their dogs are always sick, they just would never believe that germs could come from their cuddly little shiat-eater. Its always "just a little cold", "just allergies"; it's NEVER from french-kissing a pet who eats feces.
Watch your dog sometime. Specifically, watch what it puts in its mouth.
