Can Bleach Fumes hurt my Betta?

My wife cleans the bathroom with bleach and it makes our apartment smell like bleach.

So I close the bathroom door, and open the window, but you can still smell it a little.

Can the bleach fumes hurt my betta?

Bleach isn't even good for you to breathe(the fumes irritate your lungs, make me REALLY teary eyed, eyes burn, etc.) Open the windows/patio door to air your house out. Also, bleach is quite caustic on fabrics/skin. Can you find a different cleaner? I know lysol has come out with a new cleaner that uses hydrogen peroxide instead of bleach. Clorox also makes a 'green cleaner'

sorry I don't have an answer for you, just my suggestions.

It shouldn't have too much of a immediate effect, but I would switch to a green cleaner like seventh generation, water, or even vinegar. This will not only help the fish, it will help the environment and you too
