Does anyone have a recipe for a laundry pretreatment that does not have ammonia in it?
By Deborah from Midlothian, TX
Buy a bar of genuine soap, either Fels, Zote, or Octagon. Dampen the stain with water and rub the bar of soap on the stained area. Launder.
While you asked for recipe without ammonia.
Unless you are allergic to ammonia, you may want
to try the following recipe, it works quite well for me.
Ammonia cuts grease!
This was in "Cheaper & Better" by Nancy Birnes
1/2 cup ammonia
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup baking soda
2 tablespoons liquid soap or Soft Soap
2 quarts of water
Use in spray bottles.
Dawn dish detergent does wonders. I wet the stain then rub in a little dawn before I throw it in the washer. Also used it on ink mark on leather purse and it took it out. I never buy prewash products.
