Ammonia

When diapers sit for a little while, they get ammonia build up right? That's the strong smell at the bottom of the diaper pail, I believe. Heres the question, when you mix bleach and ammonia doesn't it make a poison gas? Am I wrong? I just started thinking this morning, there are some ladies who like to bleach their diapers...

Re: Ammonia

Very true! It does make a toxic gas, hence why the back of cleaner bottles always say not to mix the two!

Re: Ammonia

I wonder if its the same? Anytime I have used bleach on something that was stinkin I washed it normally first and have had no problems. I wonder what other peoples experience with this has been.

Re: Ammonia

Well it kind of makes me wonder, because the ammonia bottle in the store has a picture of a baby on it. My mom says that's because ammonia is for washing diapers. I remember when she told me that, I thought she was crazy, because ammonia is in diapers already. But she says that's what people used to use when she was growing up.
