    Yes. You’re freaking out over something small.

    Ehhh.. just be cautious.

    No. You are in danger for the night!

    Open the windows and turn a fan on if you’re that nervous. If it hasn’t bothered you now, it won’t.

    Oh, if you accidentally mix ammonia and bleach you will KNOW. Indeed, there’s no way you can be unsure or not know. So if you aren’t wheezing and struggling to breathe, you are FINE. There’s almost no in-between. You flushed in between, meaning that all the water in the bowl was replaced before you sprayed something with a small amount of ammonia, most of which probably didn’t even touch the water. You are FINE. Trust me; I’ve mixed the two and I know what it’s like. I’m lucky I didn’t end up in the emergency room (stupidity on my part).

    Trying to make your own chloramine? Lol. I’m sure you and your pup are ok, and you won’t make that mistake again.

    OMG, this is so true!  I have done it!  I’m pretty sure I made mustard gas.  It was unbearable.  Your eyes and lungs just burn like crazy.

    The only solution I have found that works long term is to have Dh clean the bathrooms.

    bluesky355 :  you’re fine now. You’d know it if you weren’t. But maybe take this as impetus to swap out this toxic cleaners for something safer and more environmentally friendly (: it’s not necessary to use bleach or ammonia in your bathroom (and really terrible for the environment) unless you’re trying to cover up a murder scene… go pick up some method toilet bowl cleaner and bathroom cleaner (smells like mint and eucalyptus…yummy!). No more worries about toxic fumes or weird reactions and your bathroom will be just as clean!

    and as

    If you had actually mixed those two things you would not be posting to us. You would be running away. Also most consumer grade items that aren’t just a pure chemical (like bleach) are formulated so that you can’t accidentally create chemical weapons as long as you don’t straight up mix them.
