    I literally read 5 minutes ago that alcohol mixed with bleach is toxic?

  2. Yeah, mixing bleach and alcohol produces chloroform which can cause you to pass out! That being said, I don’t know if diluting bleach in water first then mixing it would make a difference. I don’t think I want to be the one to try it out…Maybe someone else knows.

  3. Please correct your recipe- Bleach and Alcohol should NOT be mixed!!!!

  4. You cannot mix bleach with alcohol! Very dangerous!!
