Can fumes from bleach seep throu food packages?

Hi! A bulging can leaked inside our kitchen cabinet. So i googled how to handle it. I followed the instructions I found online. I mixed 1/4 cup bleach and 2 cups water. Applied it on all surfaces. Waited 15 mins then applied dish soap diluted with water. Does this produce toxic fumes? And can the toxic fumes seep through food even if they are covered and placed about 3 meters away? The cabinet still smells like bleach. What should i do about it?

It is one of the most corrosive and deadly chemicals in drugstore and supermarket. If you experience burning feeling or coughing, it is a sign of corrosive properties of bleach in your body. Though I am not sure if it can peep through cover

I would think that it would eventually "gas" away, as chlorine naturally turns to gas or air. Just open the doors and turn on the fan.
In the future you may wish to learn about more safe cleaning products. it is amazing what can be done with:
Hydrogen Peroxide
Lemon juice
Baking soda
Do a google search and learn what each one is good for.

I will happily use them as I work with every time I order from them. I have so many interesting details on working with them and extras every my order together with the high quality of caviar.
