Only When You're Gone: Bathroom Chemistry

The 4 year old snuck the bottle of food-grade sanitizer from your home brewing kit (thanks, by the way for leaving it out) and poured it into her play cups with toothpaste, hand soap, and water (Luckily the NyQuil she also pilfered is child-proofed). The PB&J and yogurt I was cleaning off the dog while this happened was discovered to be a red-herring mess; Keeping Mom busy while getting into the real stuff. Like 50% phosphoric acid, 15% Dodecylbenzene Sulfonic Acid, and 10% Isopropyl Alcohol.
She mixed all the components of her "really cool experiment" together with the 18 month-old's toothbrush, then handed it to him. Luckily, he did not drink it.
Poison control finds our family hilarious, by the way.
