Well, you just spared me a trip to Lowes... At least until I check their website. I have seen a few people mention Ace Hardware if you have one nearby, Ace Janitorial Strength Ammonia was the exact product. Sadly, I don't have one in my town.

The best place is Ace, but walleye has it too I think. Just make sure its pure and shake it. If there's bubbles, don't use it. If there are no bubbles (kinda like shaking water) then it's good to go.

Ace Hardware. A cheap gallon of their 100% pure ammonia will last you for life.

Apparently my family dollar does not have pure ammonia. Sent my boyfriend for some today and it has a surfactant in it. Bubbles when you shake it. Oh well, tomorrow I'll head to lowes and look. Might return the one we got but I may keep it around for cleaning. It was only a dollar.
