Penny has shared how she uses ammonia for laundry in her home.
I add 1 cup of ammonia to my wash.
It helps clean the grease from my jeans. It hasn't turned my jeans a different color.
I also add 1 cup to my good white clothes instead of bleach, since that turns them yellow.
Further, I also use it for my colored towels. No color change there either.
You can't smell it after the wash cycle, but don't breath the fumes in while adding it though.
Thanks Penny for your suggestions for how to use ammonia in your laundry.
I would like to remind everyone, however, that you should NEVER combine ammonia and bleach in the same wash load, since it can create dangerous (and deadly) fumes!
In addition, often this common cleaning ingredient can be used without color changes, especially as diluted as it becomes when throwing in your washing machine water, but you should still be cautious with your fabrics so always do a test for colorfastness the first time!
If you've got more uses for ammonia I'd love to hear them from you, so share them with me at the link, or read the others that have already been submitted.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
