Peroxide and Ammonia Cleaner

This cleaner is cheap and works wonders. The recipe was given to me by my daughter years ago.

  • one cup peroxide
  • 2 Tbsp ammonia
  • 1 spray bottle

I mix this up in larger amounts. I usually use at least 3 cups of peroxide and 6 Tbsp of ammonia. I have yet to find a carpet stain that it will not remove. Some spots just disappear before your eyes. Others need to be blotted with white paper towels or a white cloth. If it is a terrible stain, the paper towels may need to be weighted down overnight.

Being the owner of four cats, I keep it mixed up all the time and I would put it up against the most expensive cleaner you can buy commercially. I have also used it on spots on upholstery as well as spots on the walls. It is a multipurpose cleaner for me.

Can you please tell me what grade of peroxide you use and will it work with lemon ammonia?

Every article I have read says to NEVER use ammonia because dogs urine contains it.

You never want to use ammonia when cleaning up any pet accidents. Ammonia is present in their urine and will only reinforce that the spot they peed in is an acceptable potty place, hence more accidents.

I have used it on heavily stained pet stained areas both by dogs and cats. I pre-treat the carpet with this concoction in a weed sprayer and then use a dry carpet cleaning agent.


Wait for it to dry vacuum and voila, beautiful carpet that is like new. I have had no problems with pets re-claiming their accident prone area. You go Dink!

ammonia should NEVER be is the ammonia smell you are trying to get rid of. If you use that, the cat/dog will smell it and go there again.

Will this work in a washing machine or will it need to be more concentrated?
