    Hi all

    Anyone know the brand name of an Ammonia based cleaner in the UK, Windolene
    (Not the pink one) contains no ammonia.

    Thanks

  2. Cloudy ammonia is generally available in supermarkets - solution of soap in
    weak ammonia. Old fashioned and ineffective as a cleaner compared with
    modern solvent-type cleaners.

    The latest one in Tesco's -a clear liquid Windolene contains ammonia - just
    smell it. I'm using it now and it sure contains ammonia. Mr Muscle and
    several other spray kitchen cleaners are also a mild ammonia solution. They
    don't name the contaents on the pack however ?You can also obtain household
    ammonia and dilute that.

    Thanks for the info

    Just returned from my local tesco's, they had clear Windowlene original
    (Clear) and Mr Muscle (Green) and both defiantly did not smell of ammonia.
    They must have regional mixes and our one's do not contain ammonia.

    I did manage to get a bottle of ammonia so I shall be mixing my own.

    ----------
    Q: What ingredients are in Windex® Glass and Multi-Surface Cleaners?
    A: Windex® Glass and Multi-Surface Cleaners contain detergents,
    solvents, fragrance, Ammonia-D®, and alcohol. They should not be used if
    ammonia is not recommended for use on surface. (Windex® Multi-Surface
    Cleaner with Vinegar, Windex® Outdoor Window & Surface Cleaner, and
    Windex® Multi-Surface Sparkling Orange™ Cleaner do not contain ammonia
    or dyes. They are safe to use in these cases.)


    They cleverly use the trade name "Ammonia-D", which someone wrote was
    probably a compound name which when dissolved in water generated free
    ammonia.

    But, that was from a newsgroup discussin, and they are slightly less
    trustworthy than real information.
