Hopefully anyone opening this will realize immediately from the smell that it is indeed bleach and not ammonia. Ammonia has a distinct smell and usually one can't tolerate it very long without having windows and doors open. This smells nothing at all like bleach so you can tell/smell the difference.

And good advice from that link to not mix bleach and ammonia together - the fumes could very well kill you. On the bottle of bleach I have it says: Do not use or mix with other household chemicals such as ammonia, toilet bowl cleaners, acids or other household chemicals. To do so will cause the release of toxic gases.

You can mix them,but only in an extremely well ventilated area ! Years ago I worked with a woman who tried in a bathroom after moving & ended up hospitalized for a week.

leslie it states on the bottle to NOT mix them together with any other chemicals. Where is it stated it's ok to mix them together? Two volatile chemicals can cause a reaction and some even explode should they be mixed together.

Its not stated anywhere to my knowledge,but in small amounts in well ventilated areas it does cut through built up crud. I just don't know if its worth trying. If you talk to cleaning crews for crime scenes or fires they do it, but again they have huge commercial fans going.

Well leslie then it would be use at your own risk if people mix the two together. I would think if that was  ok it would be a product in one bottle instead of sold separately.

Piggly Wiggly. Always loved that name. Whenever we'd drive down to North Dakota, that's where we'd go to pick up some snacks.

Mixing bleach and ammonia, or anything else for that matter, is a big no-no. Not only can it release gases, but depending on what its mixed with, it could foam or bubble and could wind up in your eyes or on your skin.

Watch out for using either in a toilet if you have a toilet bowl cleaner in there too.
