Toilet cleaners: What they contain
It is one of the most toxic cleansers, as it contains the most active compounds.
Typically, they contain marble powder or sand and pumice powder or chalk. To whiten they contain chemical over-abrasives, potassium hypochlorite or sodium hypochlorite.
To disinfect contain chlorine, formaldehyde or phenol, but also chemical fragrances, for good smell – the remainder, about 35%, is water.
The simultaneous “release” of chlorine with formaldehyde and chemical fragrances creates toxic gases.
(In 1918, in World War I 85,000 soldiers died of chemical gases, which were based on chlorine).
In addition, “known” is the cough and asthma of the cleaners.
