    What percentage ammonia are most of y'all using? I bought some 27% ammonia is that extremely high? Doesn't seem to take much to get the job done while degreasing.

    I think the ACE Hardware ammonia I use is 10%. It'll burn your nostrils if you get a whiff of it!

    I have the hardware store 10%. Can't imagine what 27% would be like. The 10% is fierce.

    I have found it at a janitorial supply company. It was $11 a gallon. Usually only takes a splash of it., Wondering what it would do to bone undeluded?

    Possibly nothing but, it might also not do a great job helping to get grease out. It emulsifies the fat but you still need water to give the grease someplace to go. If you get a steak with a bone or a raw chicken bone, try cleaning it by your method and toss it in a jaw with some undiluted and leave it for a few months as a test.
