Lessons Learned

  • Lesson learned, don't try to murder people

Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

You have provided some excellent warnings about mixing chlorine bleach and ammonia. Yes, toxic gases will be formed and the two should never be mixed.

However, you did not read the article about removing underarm stains well. The directions are for combining OXYGEN-based bleach and ammonia. While the cleaning should be done in a well-ventilated space due to the overwhelming odor of ammonia, NO TOXIC GAS will be formed.

This is why it is important to read directions completely and thoroughly before beginning a project.
