Q.Household ammonia: can it contribute any Nitrogen to compost

Zone NE Ohio | MTNBIKERHIKER added on July 21, 2012 | Answered

Have a source of horse manure and straw. Most of it is not very well decomposed. I wet it w/the hose and run it over with the lwan mower 2-4 times and it’s great mulch. However, I’d like to compost it and was wondering if adding regular household ammonia to the compost pile would help add nitrogen to speed composting?

Yup! That's what my husband uses! just pour some on over your pile (not the whole bottle!) and MIX IT IN....you'll be amazed what household products can be used to help our lawns, flowers, compost...
