I accidentally swallowed some dish washing soap

  1. I was rinsing my cup out with some ajax soap.. (just a few drops)
    I didnt rinse the cup thoroughly..
    i filled the cup up with water, and drank it.
    I didnt realize that there were soap bubbles in my cup until i was already half way through drinking the entire cup..
    Please help..


    Do I need to go to the ER?
    Or do anything here at home to better the situation?
    Is the dishwashing soap going to damage my inside's?

    That small amount isn't likely to hurt you, and I think you're not too worried since you're HERE rather than calling someone...

    Back in the olden days if a child swore, sometimes they'd get their mouths washed out with soap, and other than being bubbly, they were ok...

    I was waiting for someone to respond before I did...
    I had to fight the urge to type something smart-****....

    I first wrote to drink a lot of fluid to dilute the bugger, but my funny side got the best of me ;=)

    My kids survived when they "accidentally" swallowed some right after they said something NOT OK. Crazy how that happens :|

    At least you wash your cups, OP. That's much better for you than drinking water mixed with a batch of home-grown penicillin setting up shop on a 5-day old half-eaten ham sandwich that was forgotten in the cup. Soap is our friend.
