Please can anyone tell me if I can use ammonia in my dishwater to wash my dishes and if so how much do I use?
By Anita from Saskatoon, SK
Ammonia does not mix with all things, and I would be careful. For sure, NOT in the dishwasher. Any residue of commercial dishwasher det. would set off an unhealthy HAZMAT reaction.
I need to know if I can add ammonia to the dishwasher cycle. The interior is stainless steel.
If you never, ever use or have used a product with bleach I the machine you can use 1/4 cup of household ammonia in a dishwasher to degrease dishes and on it's own to degrease the machine.
Bleach and ammonia used together create a poisonious reaction. beware and be careful.
A safer choice is a cup of vinegar.
Some people run an empty load with vinegar to clean it out. A repairman told me it wears out the rubber parts. I use detergent meant for the dishwasher
