    How much ammonia do you use? I don't live in an apartment so can't do anything outdoors and I also have a shower not a tub. So the plastic bag/amonia method would be great for me. Thanks

    I lent my portable fire pit to VBS this summer and they left t out in the rain. Will any of this work on the wire that rusted?

    Do you think unscented fabric softener sheets would work? Seems trivial but I wonder if unscented sheets have a different make up that wouldn't work as well.
