What Can I Mix With Ammonia to Clean Floors?

I recently read a tip about mixing ammonia and something else, maybe vinegar, in a spray bottle to touch up soiled areas on the kitchen floor without doing the entire floor. I can't recall what the other ingredient was nor what the mixing proportions are. Does anyone know? Thanks.

I wouldn't mix anything with it except water as kffrmw88 says.

I think the other ingredient is Dawn blue dish soap.

I use really hot water and lemon juice with lemon scented ammonia. Also, I have had no issues with discoloration. My carpet it a dark tan/ light brownish color. I use approx half cup lemon ammonia, 2-4 teaspoons of lemon juice and the rest hot water.

I'm concerned about an article I read that stated you should never use ammonia on carpet, except for the stains. They claim that it will discolor the carpet, weaken fibers, and attract future dirt.

Is there any foundation to this claim?
