Bleach! Fear of household cleaners!

Posted by AMD on August 28, 2004, at 20:29:18


Does anyone know if bleach fumes, the kind you might breathe in while doing laundry for half-an-hour, cause permanent brain damage? I have this deathly fear of household product smells and last night I was in the garage cleaning things up while a load of whites was in the washer. I spent five minutes in there before I wanted to puke from the smell, and came back in 15 minutes when the smell had dissipated, spending another thirty or so. Did I cause damage? Reversible? Is this fear irrational? If I can't "smell" the bleach, does that mean it's OK? If I cover my mouth with a mask, does that protect one? Am I freaking out for no reason? I can't stop obsessing today that I my mind is lost from this ... ugh! How much of this would one expect before really seeing brain damage? How would I know?
