I dont think they have Ace stores in Canada but I may be wrong! As I said, finding ammonia can be the hardest part. You want the ingredients to list ammonium hydroxide & water and nothing else. No surfectants, fragrances, dyes, etc. Shake the bottle- if it foams/bubbles (like soap), skip it. Large chain stores/home improvement type stores wont carry anything usuable, so save yourself the hassle & skip them. You may have luck at a small hardware store/drugstore or a Dollar Tree store (if you have them). If you have no luck, amazon sells a couple of brands of usuable ammonia (incl Ace) as well. Good luck!
