Do NOT mix CLR with bleach, especially in a confined area like a boat cabin. CLR is an acid that will disassociate the chlorine in the bleach turning it into chlorine gas.

Cabyn Fever, MY BAD! you are so right I should have included "NOT AT THE SAME TIME" on the CLR & bleach, IT's not a good mix. Thank you for pointing that out.
