25 People Who Engineered Their Own “Fixes”

“Heard via radio show that you can use bleach when you hand-wash dishes to make them cleaner.
Read the back of my dish soap. Didn’t see any warnings, so I dumped a capful of bleach in my soapy dishwater.
The smell was awful and I started getting light-headed. Unplugged the sink, vented the apartment and went outside for a while. Found out later that I had made chlorine gas.
Looked up what went wrong. Turns out there’s a big difference between adding bleach to dishwater and rinsing dishes with bleach water.” (wilwarinandamar)
