    You absolutely cannot mix bleach and ammonia. It can kill you. She was lucky she only got a headache. Please tell her never to do this again or even to have the two cleaners in the same room.

    Joentuff -

     

    Please call the Poison Control Center (in the United States National Poison control number 1-800-222-1222) or go to the Emergency Room.  The combination of bleach and ammonia creates a poisonous gas and she should have medical attention as soon as possible.  These two chemicals should never be combined.

     

    Please take care of her right away.
