Cleaning your kitchen sink or your bathroom floor tiles? Here’s an important reminder when using chemicals such as chlorine as cleaners.
Cleaning products that contain chlorine bleach or acid should not be mixed with other cleansers. Chlorine bleach reacts with ammonia or acid and produces dangerous gases.
So when cleaning, remove or take off jewelry and wear rubber gloves. These scouring cleaners can dull the polish on jewelries. They can also scratch soft gems such as pearls and opals, and the chlorine bleach can discolor silver.
