13 Household Products You Should Never Mix

Accident can be avoided with simple knowledge of regular items we use and their combinations

1- Mixing of Different Battery Brands
Mixed Batteries Do Not Work Well Together

As we mix and match lithium battery with another alkaline battery the performance of the holding device won’t be improved. Moreover it is not advisable to mix various brands in a single device. This will reduce performance of the device causing leakage of batteries. Furthermore old and new batteries should not be mixed too and the user should replace the whole set of batteries if replacement is warranted.

2- Rubbing Alcohol Mixed With Bleach
Rubbing Alcohol and Bleach

This rather relates to chemistry technicalities. Rubbing alcohol, or surgical spirit we may call it, contains ethanol or isopropyl alcohol. Mix of the two are very special to causing damage to our skin, nervous system, kidneys, liver, lungs and even eyes.

3- Ammonia And Bleach
Bleach for Beautifying Your Hair

We use ammonia bleach for beaching of hair in our homes. This chemical combination can prove toxic and dangerous when it produces vapors. This may cause damage to our respiratory system. Worst comes worst when it is used in large quantity it produces large fumes of ammonia (usually called tear gas). Users might form another substance called liquid hydrazine.
