Trick for Neutralizing Ammonia Odor



I recently read one Moms advice on killing the ammonia odor in her cloth diapers. She says that Lime juice naturally kills bacteria and neutralizes ph, so she puts a tablespoon of it in the final rinse when she washes her cloth diapers.

Give this tip a try and respond letting me know if it works for you!

This will work since ammonia is alkaline amd lime is and acid, as we all know acids neturalize alkalines. Lemon or vinegar will work too. Vinegar is the most common product used to neturalize ammonia.

So nobody has actually tried this yet?? I've been using vinegar, but lime juice sounds like it's worth a try!

I tried this and it really worked. I used about 1/4c and soaked overnight.

Yes, lime and lemon juice will help neutralize odors and balance PH... and is safe for laminates and elastic. Vinegar and Bac Out is not safe for laminates, so please do not use with covers or anything with a laminate!
