LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Many a germaphobe will mix cleaners in an attempt to kill viruses ranging from the novel coronavirus to the common cold. Lexington Fire wanted to take a second to remind their Facebook fans that not all chemicals are meant to be combined.

Most people who took high school chemistry will know these...but a healthy reminder could help us all. A little bleach in water goes a long way and you don't have to worry about creating toxic gases.
