Does bleach turn urine red?
A MyCrohnsAndColitisTeam Member said: Found this on another website: Hi All, As a UC sufferer (11 years) and pharmacist this is something that has troubled me over the last few years. I have had both the reddish to purply brown staining on the toilet, as well as specifically red urine.
Mesalazine as part of its chemical make up is an “azo-dye” which on interaction with some chemicals (e.g. common house hold bleach) can turn a the colour that we all describe seeing in the toilet. This may appear red in the bowl if there is sufficient cleaning product in the bowl. So for the past 6 years I have been avoiding bleach containing products at home, opting for more natural cleaning products- it has eliminated that issue.
If you urine is red/brown in the absence of any cleaning products (e.g. pee in a cup) this is something you do need to get checked out by your doctor. After increasing my daily dose of Mesalazine in the last year I have has three episodes of blood in my urine.
- While my renal function and ultrasound of my urinary system were both normal, my gastroenterologist found a paper suggesting that at high levels Mesalazine may precipitate as crystals forming renal stones (kidney stones).
- This can only be confirmed if the stones are captured and sent for analysis (for me it resolved by reducing my dose, so no stones to analyse).
This is not currently a warning in packaging or counselling point. SO if you do experience these symptoms- don’t freak out, it is treatable/easily managed, BUT please report it to your doctor so hopefully we can increase awareness.

Take a look at these top 12 ways to eliminate urine odors out of the house.
- Start to Clean Up as Soon as You Can The most effective way to keep urine odor down in the house is to clean it as soon as possible. If urine sits for too long, it stains and leaves an odor that is hard to get out. Keep calm, gather your cleaning supplies, and reassure your loved one that everything is perfectly fine. It’s Better to Use Paper Towels Whether it’s just paper towels from the kitchen or something a little more industrial, it’s best to use disposable cleaning rags to soak up urine, because they can be taken out of the house immediately. To keep urine odors out of the house, put the rags you use in their own trash bag, and seal it shut. Take the bag out to your trash can as soon as possible. If you have to use reusable rags, make sure to also put them into a trash bag, and wash them as quickly as you can. Clean Again with Disposable Wipes After you’ve wiped down everything with paper towels, go back over the area with odor eliminating wipes to sanitize. Thoroughly wipe as many surfaces as you can to get rid of anything you may have missed with paper towels. Make sure to throw these wipes in the same bag as your paper towels. Use Enzymatic Cleaners Urine contains uric acid crystals. Enzymatic cleaners cling to uric acid, destroy, and take odor with it. Enzymatic cleaners not only destroy urine stains and odor, it also eliminates odor causing bacteria around the stain. Spray the cleaner on the area and rub until the stain and odor are gone. Try These Common Household Ingredients You can actually make very powerful odor eliminators at home. Try mixing about a cup of peroxide, three tablespoons of baking soda, and just a couple drops of dish detergent. Spray the area, allow it to sit for about 20 minutes, and rub the area until the odor is eliminated. Be sure to do a small test patch first! Use Borax and Other Grocery Store Items for Odors in Bedding To get stubborn odors out of bedding and clothing, try simply mixing equal parts Borax and washing soda. These two ingredients are safe to use in any washing machine and can usually be found at your local grocery store. You can also try mixing in a little vinegar or apple cider vinegar too. Use Bed Pads or Adult Diapers Disposable bed pads, often referred to as Chux, are absorbent, waterproof pads that can be put under sheets or on the floor to prevent any urinary incontinence accidents from spreading further around the house.
