Does Ammonia Disinfect?

Answer

Ammonia is a mild disinfectant. It has been shown to be a good bactericidal, but its effectiveness on other organisms is fair at best. It is considered fair at eliminating fungicidal and protozoal organisms, but it does not do well at eliminating viruses, bacterial spores, or hard water. Ammonia is also deactivated by soap.
