Did you know there are two kinds of ammonia?
Let me share with you what they are, and when to use each one.
Regular Ammonia: Also known as clear or non sudsy ammonia does not streak and is perfect for windows, mirrors and chrome.
Sudsy ammonia: Has a touch of detergent in it and is great for cleaning grime and dirt.
Jan's Tip: If you can't find sudsy ammonia in your store, make your own by adding a squirt (yes a very scientific measurement!) of liquid dish soap (make sure there is NO BLEACH in the dish soap!) to the regular ammonia.
I've posted this recipe for a good, thrifty, make your own All Purpose Spray Cleaner before , but I"ll post it again here. It features sudsy ammonia:
It's perfect to refill your spray bottles and to use for cleaning floors, store the extra in an empty milk or water jug and label.
All Purpose Cleaner:
1 gallon hot water
1/4 cup sudsy ammonia
1/4 cup vinegar
