If you have some ammonia in your cleaning supply cupboard, then you can use it to solve some common household problems. You may be familiar with these tips already, but if not, try them out. You just might find yourself saving money by not going to the store and spending money on things you don't need after all!
Use ammonia to get rid of oily stains. Mix one part ammonia with two parts water. Gently blot the solution directly on the stain, then rinse with water. (Always be sure to test the solution on an inconspicuous area of the fabric first.)
Use ammonia to keep animals away from your trash cans. Fill a spray bottle with 1 tsp. of ammonia with 1 quart water. Spray the inside of garbage can lids as well as the garbage bags inside the cans. Use gloves to keep your skin from being irritated! The smell of the ammonia will help deter raccoons and other pests from investigating your trash cans as they will think another animal has already 'marked' the trash can.
Use ammonia to get your windows sparkly clean. Clean windows with a soft cloth dampened with a solution of 1 cup clear ammonia in 3 cups water. Your windows will be crystal-clear and streak-free.
Use ammonia to clean bathroom tiles. Clean bathroom tile and get rid of mildew by washing them with 1/4 cup ammonia in 1 gallon (3.7 liters) water.
