Just so, can bleach be used as drain cleaner?
Bleach is not good to unclog a drain. Although 3/4 cup of bleach followed by a thorough flushing of hot water can be used to deodorize and sanitize drains, it won't help a clog.
Likewise, what happens when you mix bleach and drain cleaner? "Many household cleaners, particularly toilet cleaners and some drain cleaners have acid in them," Teets said. "If you mix bleach with acid, it can form a chlorine gas which is a green and very noxious gas that can cause respiratory problems. It is very poisonous to breathe in."
Similarly, it is asked, is Drano the same as bleach?
Drano is lye-based household drainage cleaner product sold in several forms, consisting in variations of sodium hydroxide (lye), sodium hypochlorate (bleach), sodium nitrate, sodium chloride (salt) and aluminum.
