- Two different cleaners
You couldn’t be more wrong if you belong to the group of people who think that by mixing a window cleaner with some universal cleaner, will get better results. By all costs you should avoid doing this as every cleaner is made for a specific purpose.
- Rubbing alcohol and bleach
This mixture is a big NO-NO! It’s in fat a combination of chloroform and hydrochloric acid, which is extremely dangerous. It’s best to just use bleach on its own.
- Bleach with ammonia
Mixing these two ingredients creates toxic smokes, mainly chloramines, which are not only dangerous for your eyes, but are also really unsafe to breathe in.
- Chlorine bleach with vinegar
Because this combination produces a toxic chlorine gas you shouldn’t mix chlorine, with any kind of acid, including vinegar.
- Baking soda and vinegar
You should always stay away from this cleaning formula although it seems perfectly natural, and quite efficient as a house-cleaning device. Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate reacts with acetic acid (found in vinegar), producing sodium acetate, water, and carbon dioxide. Vinegar also causes baking soda to bubble, so if you put them in a closed container, it can explode!
- Hydrogen peroxide and vinegar
You should never blend these two items, especially not in the same container as it will lead to the creation of peracetic acid, which is highly toxic and can damage your skin, eyes and respiratory systemdespite the fact that some people will say it’s a perfectly safe combination and will use it as a cleaning device.
