Mixing bleach with rubbing alcohol and/or hydrogen peroxide can run the risk of producing chlorine gas. This is a gas that if inhaled in excess, or at all, is extremely dangerous, harmful or even fatal. Keeping this in mind, it is therefore not recommended that you mix these substances together. The label of your rubbing alcohol will recommend any substances it can or cannot be mixed with. Often this is a combination that individuals want to use as a cleaning product. If this is the reason that you are asking this question, then there are a number of different, and much safer, combinations you can use for cleaning.

Mixing vinegar and water is a way to make a non-toxic but powerful acidic cleaner that dissolves dirt, grease and crime. Fill a large spray bottle with one part of distilled white vinegar and one part water. You can then use this mixture to spray onto your windows, leave for a few minutes then rinse and dry thoroughly with a lint-free cloth. Another combination that avoids the streaking that vinegar alone can sometimes leave is ammonia and white vinegar. This will require one cup of distilled white vinegar, ΒΌ cup of ammonia and one cup of water. Do be aware that this mixture is toxic so you should keep it away from pets and children and make sure that you wash it off thoroughly. Rubbing alcohol can be mixed with vinegar to help clean particularly dirty windows. Again, this is a toxic solution so be careful when using. Mix one cup of rubbing alcohol with one tablespoon of vinegar and one cup of water. Make sure that this mixture does not come in contact with woodwork as it may cause it damage. If you decide to keep these solutions, it is important to label them carefully and keep them out of reach of small children.

This mixture will react to create a dangerous gas. A mixture of Bleach, Alcohol, and Baking Soda can even yield small amounts of chloroform. The people above saying no are idiots.

No that mixture isn't dangerous, but don't go mixing ammonia and bleach, that creates toxic fumes that can incapacitate and kill with enough exposure.

Which is why people always say, don't clean your litter box with bleach, since cat urine has a decent amount of ammonia.
