Chlorine bleach fumes: Masking, harmful effects?
    #781717 - 07/28/02 10:58 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I am using a 10% bleach/water solution in my coolmist humidifier to clean and disinfect my terrarium.

Is there any way of masking/getting rid of the awful odor of the chlorine fumes other than venting to the outside of my home?

Would these fumes cause any serious problems in myself or pets if the humidifier runs in a 12ft x 24ft x 8ft room.

Thanks.

There are no bad effects of the bleach fumes exept they sting the eyes and the smell hurts the nose if its strong. I washed down my whole bathroom with 50% bleach solution, wall, floor and ceiling. Once i was done my eyes were so god damn red and stinging i could barly see any white at all

It may damage the lungs if you inhale it for a prolonged period....

"Potential symptoms of overexposure are burning of the eyes, nose and mouth; lacrimation, rhinorrhea; coughing, choking and substernal pain; nausea, vomiting; headache, dizziness; syncope; pulmonary edema; pneumonia; dermatits; eye and skin burns" Merck Index, Volume 12.

Effects will be somewhat logrithmic to the concentration. Long term issues are not likely to be present unless using very high concentrations of chlorine. That said, why do you feel you need to add chlorine? Just use tap water....it's already nicely chlorinated at an appropriate level

Incidentally, the U.S. army apparantly developed a chrloine-based gas weapon.

why not just use a weaker solution ?
10% is overkill anyway.

Ya try 1% - 3% bleach, that would work for air sterilization.

I dont think too many people know when they smell bleach its a meth lab, the cops couldnt even do anything. Im 1000% sure they cant get a search warrent for the smell of bleach...

i just saw in the paper a couple of months ago that a cop busted a meth lab because he smelled a "suspicous odor". That gave him probably cause to just walk into this guys shed to find his meth lab.

i used 10% because of a past posting of phrozendata using this as a substitute for lysol. i just wanted to give my setup a good cleaning, especially the flex hose from the humidifier to the terrarium.

i wasn't so much concerned for what my neighbors smell as i was for what i and my pets smell/inhale. if 1% to 3% will do the trick, i'll just use that instead.

as always, thanks everyone for the information!

Ask yourself this question: would you pour chlorine and water into a drinking glass until you had 10%/vol chrlorine solution....and then drink it?

If the answer is no....why are you exposing fungi that you eat to those concentrations? And what is wrong with the chlorine level in your local water supply?

If it were me, I'd just add a little H2O2.

he's not drinking it,

he's just cleaning the damn room.

I was referring to the original poster who's using 10% bleach solution in his mister. I'm presuming he doesn't just use the mister when there's nothing in his terrarium. Then again, maybe I'm wrong...

there's nothing in my terrarium at the moment. i'm just running the humdifier with the bleach solution to clean primarily the flexible tube that connects it to the terrarium.

Wouldn't peroxide be a better, less smelly alternative? Cheap too.

White vinegar in one spray bottle, 3% H202 in another spray bottle.

Spray one on (doesn't matter which - first), wait 5 seconds, spray the other on, wait 10 seconds, then wipe down.

Smell isn't great, but it's not toxic & this combo is as good at killing bacteria, spores, mold, an other nasties - as lysol & a ton of other disinfectant / sanitizers.

Is there anything that the wise agar doesn't know...
I think we owe agar  :thumbup: :thumbup: for the wealth of information he has provided here on the Shroomery. I know I have had great success with his help  :grin: Thanks for the Spawnmate help!  :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :thumbup:
