All because of these potential reactions when mixed with Household Bleach:


Ammonia + Bleach = Chlorine Gas, it mixes with the water in your lungs and then becomes hydrochloric acid and you know the rest.

More bleach than ammonia= Nitrogen Triglyceride, a very unstable compound, I.E. Highly reactive, also poisonous, but by them time it would hit your mouth it would already have exploded.

More Ammonia than bleach= a self igniting form of rocket fuel.

This is all because of a Sodium Oxygen and Chlorine chemical called Sodium Hypochlorite in household bleach. These reactions are all using household ammonia, now consider it with pure ammonia and the strength of these reaction is increase.

DO NOT MIX THESE TO COMPOUNDS TO EXPERIMENT! ODDS ARE YOU WILL DIE, OR BE SEVERELY INJURED.

The ammonia you're looking for is janitorial grade, by law they can't add junk to it (from what I heard anyways). Home use ammo is scented to make it more tolerable when you use it. Ace hardware has it (google local Ace stores), I have a local independent/Ace that has it in Qt size and I think OSH might have it too (I think they're Ace?). You could go to a commercial outlet, but it's probably in bulk (5g?).

+1 to strawman. Ammo+bleach=WWI gas. Bad, very bad.
