If a small amount is drunk, the surface of the mouth and esophagus would be damaged and the acid in the stomach would react the the bleach, causing an upset stomach. Some chlorine gas will be released, which could damage your throat, lungs, and nose as it escapes. Depending on what additives, such as fragrances, is in the bleach, liver and kidney damage could result.

If a larger amount of bleach is drunk, it could result in major damage to the stomach and possibly death.

First aid: Drink 4-8 ounces of water or milk to dilute the bleach and DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Seek medical help immediately.

Drinking straight bleach is toxic and can cause severe injury. Small quantities of bleach, a tablespoon to a gallon of water, can be used to sanitize and kill off bacteria that are living in the water.

It could be fatal. It really depends on how concentrated the bleach is. Very small amounts, I believe it is a tablespoon per gallon, can be used to sanitize water, but you do have to be careful.

Mixing bleach and water creates a diluted bleach solution. There is no chemical reaction between bleach (Sodium hypochlorite - NaClO) and water.
