I saw an article in Saturday's edition of the Kennebec Journal about an Augusta woman who mixed pool chemicals (calcium hypochlorite) with water in a bucket in the sink and it caused burns to her face and neck. It pays to read directions but it wouldn't hurt to hand out safety alerts where pools are sold and places where pool chemicals are sold.

I think some people need safety notices posted on their hands that say "Request assistance for everything"
 
i still don't exactly understand how this happened, mixing water and hypochlorite isn't that dangerous...
