|ammonia smell in the shower (03/08/14 20:30:07)||Reply|
i noticed that when taking shower (with soap) after a hard work, i detect ammonia smell.
some friends reported this too.
i experimented a bit, and found that some combination of soap and shampoo (even without body sweat) produce ammonia smell
i became curious and found this thread
in which some people suggest some correlation between diet, protein and exercise sweat.
i wonder which body wash chemical reactions can produce ammonia.

i guess, those also make it into soapoons.
but probably lotsa other ways..

If you have ammonium salts and alkalize them with soap (sodium salts of fatty acids which are weak acids, hence soap is alkaline), some ammonia might escape. So bound ammonia might become released in the shower by the soap.
Industrially, in the Solvay process, ammonia can be regenerated by treating ammonium chloride with calcium hydroxide.

When I've had a really hot day I have experienced that my polyester-cotton shirts smell of ammonia - with neither shampoo or soap added. Pure cotton shirts are better - but pure cotton shirts have to be ironed.
It can never be right.
Fjords look nice. But living there, from local agriculture only, must have been very hard. Fishing too, in those waters.
