Suzn got a little tube of "after bite" the other day and i noticed its active ingredient is 3.5% ammonia. That was it! She paid $2.50 for a half-ounce bottle. And yup it works.

Hating to sound stingy, ($65/quart? AFTER USING 1/3 of the quart and diluting the rest?) let's see, compared to $1/quart bottle for 5% household ammonia, that means -- ummmm -- that means i'm going into the medicine racket and i'd better be quick about it! :)

Yeah, I found that out too. I was looking at a bottle of that "fresh shower" stuff. The stuff if you spray on your shower walls and on your shower curtain it kills mold and mildew, keeps it from getting started. Looked at the active ingredient, well, whatdya know, ammonia. Its good for all sorts of things.

Well heck what else can we use ammonia for? I know it cleans windows and aquariums. And plants like it - in fact they don't use nitrogen until nature breaks it down into ammonia. :)
