OxiClean Pressure Mishap

So.....This is about OxiClean so I thought I would post here. Feel free to move if needed.

OxiClean is amazing to clean stuff, but it does create a good amount of pressure. I was going to clean my coffee thermos last night and thought I would OxiClean / Hot water it. I then put the lid on and shook to mix it up. A few minutes later, I am putting my dogs on a leash to take them for a walk and I hear a "BOOM!!!!". Walk into the kitchen to see what happened and I notice a foam coming out of the top of my thermos. I start wiping it up and notice a small chunk of something white. I first think... hmmm, chunky oxiclean. I then proceed to look up and notice the full result of OxiClean and hot water in a sealed container

Obviously this was a brain fart on my behalf. I was thinking the results would be the same as water and soap...but no.

So word of warning.....OxiClean creates pressure!!!

The thermos is sparkling clean though and still works
