I always use Muriatic Acid to clean the bathroom especially to remove the stains in the toilet bowl. But I always forget to wear a mask. Is it really bad to inhale it ?

Muriatic Acid is hydrochloric acid. To minimize the risks while working with hydrochloric acid, appropriate precautions should be taken, including wearing rubber or PVC gloves, protective eye goggles, and chemical resistant clothing. Hydrochloric acid in high concentrations forms acidic mists. Both the mist and the solution have a corrosive effect on human tissue, potentially damaging respiratory organs, eyes, skin and intestines.

Oh my gosh, how careless I have been!


Thanks a lot for the advise, Trago!

I would keep an eye on your health and if you feel odd, go and see a doctor!
