Tips for Cleaning With Ammonia

These handy tips can help you save money and keep you safe when using this potent ingredient.

  • Always read the instructions on the bottle carefully: Use and store safely. Dilute ammonia correctly. Learn how to handle an ammonia accident.
  • Use gloves when using it: Skin contact with ammonia can cause redness, pain, irritation, and burns.
  • Glass cleaner formula: Make an ammonia solution (5 percent to 10 percent by weight) by mixing 1 tablespoon of clear ammonia with 2 cups water in a spray bottle. Spritz it on and wipe it dry immediately with a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • Oven cleaning formula: To clean your electric oven with ammonia, warm the oven to 150 degrees Fahrenheit while boiling a pot of water. Open the windows to ventilate the area. Put 1/2 cup of ammonia into an oven-safe, non-reactive bowl on the top shelf and put the container of boiling water on the shelf beneath it. Shut the door and let it sit for 8 to 12 hours. After the time has elapsed, open the oven door and let it ventilate for an hour before using a sponge, warm water, and dish soap to wipe away the loosened food particles. If you must use this method on your gas oven, make sure that the pilot light and gas lines are turned off.
  • Use in the laundry for regular stains: Soak stubborn stains on cotton, polyester, or nylon fabrics with a solution of 2/3 cup clear ammonia, 2/3 cup dish soap, 6 tablespoons of baking soda, and 2 cups warm water. Let it soak for about 30 minutes, then launder as usual. Never use ammonia on wool or silk. Never mix with bleach.
  • Use in the laundry for blood or grass stains: Pretreat with a solution of one-part ammonia to one-part warm water on cotton, polyester, or nylon fabrics.


Cover up scratches on the drip pan by using mineral oil, vegetable oil, or olive oil. Put the oil on a cloth and rub the cloth around the drip pan in the direction of the grain until it’s polished.

The best way to keep your stove drip pans from rusting is to keep the pans clean and dry. To do this, wipe the drip pans clean when you’re cleaning the kitchen after cooking. Use a paper towel or a dry cloth to dry the pans.
