ink + bleach = heat?
« on: 11/06/2007 18:03:55 »
I go my fingers messy while filling up the printer cartridges (didn't use gloves) and using soap did little to clean them so, I used a bit of bleach!

As soon as the bleach touched the ink stained bits there was a noticeable heating effect on the skin and adding more water seemed to make it hotter.

The mix of ink and bleach seems to create a heating effect so, what reaction is causing that?

Probably the oxidation of the pigments and of the solvent by the bleach.

Bleach is corrosive, and I find if I get it on my skin there is a burning sensation... could that just be it?

It depends, do you use cold or hot bleach? [;)]

Seriously, I think that, yes, that effect is probably due to it, and, maybe, also to an acidic-basic reaction: skin contains organic acids.
