  1. Was it the reaction between the Urine and the Baking soda? Or the Urine and the Bleach? Or All three?

    I know Urine and bleach cause a sort of Mustard gas type of reaction, but I’d never heard of the Baking soda urine combo.

    Sounds like a fun home chemistry experiment!

  2. I first heard this urban legend several years ago on Mythbusters. Including the C’ville location.

    Killer Washing Machine: BUSTED
    The washing machine has a safety feature that prevents the spin cycle from hooking on into anything. The dog urine would not explode with the bleach or the detergent, so it was quickly busted.
