bleach... toilets.. and pee?

someone just told me that if you use bleach to clean your toilet you run an extremely high risk of biting the big one?
Apparently the ammonia in urine reacts with the bleach and gives off fairly noxious fumes.

anyone heard this before?remember this?? we really need to get this urban legend rolling... anyone wanna do up some techy kindda writeup bs to circulate?

There is "some" in human urine, but if you flush the toilet first, then pour in the
bleach you shouldn't have a problem.

urine breaks down into amonia, in other words if you dump that Mt Dew bottle thats behind the seat in the jeep from the last road trip into the toilet after cleaning it "might"have a reaction

'Zactly. Bleach and ammonia mix together to create mustard gas. A pretty good way to watch yourself cough up chunks of your own lungs.

However, as long as you aren't peeing all over a toilet bowl full of bleach, you probably won't have an issue.

And like any other time you are using cleaning chemicals, just make sure the room is adequately ventilated.

One of the places I used to work told us not to mix amonia and bleach when cleaning stuff because it made some sort of bad gas. Can't really say it's a fact though.

I've heard of this a couple of times. I heard of one guy who's wife ( I guess, or maybe him) had cleaned the toilet and let bleach in the bowl. I guess he was sitting on the pot dropping the kids off and peeing at the same time, and the fumes got to him. I think they said he either passed out and hit his head on the floor, or hit it on the counter on the way down, I don't remember which. I guess technically he didn't die of the fumes, but they were the initial cause of him passing out! Now that's a killer dump!

I've always had it stuck in my head that it was mustard gas. Oh well, either way, it ain't healthy!

We've got these little things in out toilet tanks that have chlorine bleach tablets. All the water filling the tank is run through the little container with the tablet. Sometimes the bleach fumes get a little strong. Never passed out yet but the shit, er chlorine, will sure make your eyes water. That can't be good.

I've personally seen and breathed some of the gas that is made with chlorine and ammonia is mixed together.

Yes it is dangerous, yes it's bad to mix them, but it probably is not enough to make a guy keel over and pass out on the toilet from his own wizz and chlorine.

When I worked for a vet, we would bleach the kennels where the cats stayed. If one peed in there and you put bleach in there watch out!
It will literally take your breath away

It's even worse if the spray your exhaust manifold. When that shit gets hot and starts smoking it smells hella nasty. I have to wash mine off every day because a cat sprays it during the night every night. Hence the shocking alarm system that will be going into my truck.
