I almost drank Hydrogen Peroxide... Answered

If I were to, what would happen?


You'd either foam a little or die an excruciatingly painful death depending on percentage... Out of question how did you end up nearly drinking it, I did nearly drink some setting polyurethane compound once, thankfully it was thick enough that I noticed beforehand, then again it was in a plastic coffee cup, like my coffee and black, like my coffee...

Out of question how did you end up nearly drinking it
Some of it was in a cap next to my uncapped bottle, so I almost capped it with, well you know.

Well I was distracted by a lot of things at the time, picked up the wrong cup and tipped, but it's so thick I noticed it was heavy but apparently empty, at which point I looked and so the goop coming towards my lap...

What percentage? L

Probably not that much, but other comments considered within that context. L

Drinking enough of it could expand your stomach quickly enough to burst, or tear (the reaction with the HCl in the stomach will release a lot of O2 fairly quickly. But a sip shouldn't be harmful (although I would still try to avoid doing it ;-)
