I have received a death news about one of the ladies during use cleaning materials at home, after the analyze and interpret the subject scientifically we have the alarm to avoid the mistake which caused death.

Flash: Cleaner is used to remove calcareous sediments formed in the bathrooms and toilets and active substance is hydrochloric acid.
Clorox : a material for removing stains used in whitening or bleaching clothes, toilets, floors and bathrooms. It includes an active material which called sodium hypochlorite.

The problem is: Some women believe that if we have mixed two materials with each other it cause a strong cleans and multiply it effectiveness. But the truth is exactly opposite where:

While mixing two different materials they react with each other produce mounts chlorine gas throttle (Cl2), which causes fainting and if the place is closed where there is no ventilation will cause the status of the death immediately. And chemical reaction that occurs is: NaClO + 2HCl = NaCl + H2O + Cl2
If we mixed to materials the cleaning will be unable because the reaction is cancelled.
