There were three main types of poisonous gas used in trench warfare: chlorine, phosgene and mustard gas. Although it could kill, chlorine gas was easy to detect. Mustard gas was first used by the Germans in 1917 and it was incredibly effective. Although it wasn't as fatal as phosgene, mustard gas could linger over the battlefields and cause horrific burns. Phosgene however was a lot more powerful and it was difficult to detect - this became the main killing gas of WWI.
Australian soldiers wearing respirator gas masks during WWI. While under chlorine gas attacks, soldiers were instructed to urinate on their masks in order to more effectively combat the gas. However if for some reason they did not have a mask on hand, they were told to urinate on a piece of cloth and cover their face in it. Water also worked but was less effective.

Bleach and vinegar are effective cleaning agents when used separately. Although bleach is a strong disinfectant, and vinegar dissolves mineral deposits and kills many types of mold, fungi and bacteria, combining the two can be dangerous. Mixing bleach with an acid such as vinegar creates chlorine gas, a toxic chemical that can be deadly at high...

Water might be the essence of life, but it is also a liquid that can get contaminated quite easily. The world that we live in is one that is full of pollution and even water has not been spared of pollutants today.
MMS – Sodium Chlorite Sodium chlorite (NaClO2) also known as Miracle Mineral Supplement or MMS, is very alkaline and stable in solution but when acidified it forms the unstable chlorous acid and the gas chlorine dioxide (ClO2) which are strong all-round antimicrobial and parasite remedies. MMS may be used for an initial clean-out, and is very effective in high doses with acute and serious infections. Start with 1 or 2 drops of MMS and gradually increase up to 15 drops daily. Mix the MMS…
The first poison gas, chlorine,came on 22 April 1915, at the start of the Second Battle of Ypres. Around 5 pm, sentries posted among the French and Algerian troops noticed a curious yellow-green cloud drifting slowly towards their line. It signalled the first use of chlorine gas on the battlefield. The effects were severe. Within seconds of inhaling its vapour it destroyed the victim's respiratory organs, bringing on choking attacks. (For a memoir of the first gas attack click here.)
