Chlorine, a non-flammable, poisonous gas, is a major industrial chemical. Although classified as non-flammable, many combustibles will ignite in chlorine, creating toxic byproducts. Chlorine vapors, heavier than air, will remain close to the ground and expand rapidly when released, creating a very hazardous atmosphere.
In 1997, The American Public Health Association unanimously passed a resolution urging American industry to stop using the chemical chlorine.
When you open the door of your dishwasher after washing, toxic volatile chlorine from dish detergent and tap water is released into the air.
