Don’t Flush that Floss!

I didn’t know until today that flushing dental floss can gum up the works of a city’s water system: https://www.thestar.com/news/2007/01/10/dental_floss_gums_up_sewer_system.html 

It snags on other things in the water waste stream and creates big intractable hairball-like things that damage the pumps at the water processing plants.

Never Mix Bleach and Vinegar

I knew never to mix ammonia and bleach. Why do they not mention that mixing bleach with vinegar creates the same toxic gas? I’ve been experimenting with all-natural daily shower sprays. They weren’t working, so I thought, why not add a tablespoon of bleach? Luckily I Googled ‘can I mix bleach and vinegar?’ and found out why not.

Never mix bleach and vinegar, or any other acid, including lemon juice.
