Chlorine or bleach is a popular cleaning agent among Ukrainian households. Its availability and disinfectant properties make it an excellent solution for cleaning various surfaces. However, not everyone knows that chlorine cannot be used everywhere. SSPDaily has reviewed some of the most common household items that should never be washed with bleach.

Dishes and kitchen utensils

Otolaryngologists do not recommend washing cutlery, plates, cups, pots, and other kitchen utensils with chlorine. Chlorine toxicity, especially in high concentrations, can cause various health problems, including a burning sensation in the respiratory tract, coughing, watery eyes, and choking.

Chlorine residues evaporate and can accumulate in the body, causing allergic reactions. This is especially dangerous for young children with weakened immune systems.

Laminate flooring and low-quality linoleum

Cleaning floors with bleach can be as harmful as washing dishes. Even after repeated rinsing with water, chlorine residues can remain on the surface.

In addition, bleach can damage laminate flooring and low-quality linoleum. For example, it can cause cloudiness, darkening, and thinning of the material. In addition, such cleaning can accelerate surface contamination.

Acrylic bathtubs

Acrylic bathtubs should never be cleaned with chlorine-based products as they can destroy the structure of the coating, make it porous and rough to the touch, and cause unsightly stains.

The inside of refrigerators

The question of whether it's safe to bleach the inside of a refrigerator is a matter of opinion among homeowners. If you do decide to use bleach, do not apply it to the sealing gums as they are best treated with less aggressive products. After cleaning, wash the refrigerator thoroughly with warm water and leave the door ajar to allow the excess chlorine odor to escape.
