Re: Natures head cleaning the pee jug

I've got a trick for you to try, Take a green scrubby and cut it into little squares that will fall out the neck, drop some of them into the bottle add about a cup of cleaning solution of chose, close lid and shake every whitch way, drain and repeat, The pieces of scrubby will scrape the sides, if really bad you could use course sand, but that will scrach the plastic some.

There shouldn't be any ammonia in fresh healthy urine.
Ammonia is formed in the body by the breakdown of amino acids, but ammonia is so toxic that only tiny concentrations can be tolerated. So any ammonia in the bloodstream is rapidly converted to urea in the liver, and excreted as urine. As urea goes stale, bacteria convert it back into ammonia.
