Homemade Shout Stain Remover

OKay so I just made the SHOUT..Remember the recipe?

1 Cup Ammonia,
1 Cup Dishwashing Liquid
2 Cups water.

At first I tried to Halve the recipe from memory, and I used the wrong measurements. I used:

1/2 Cup Ammonia,
1/2 Cup Dawn Dish washing Liquid
2 Cups Water

As you may have noticed I used an extra cup of water for half a recipe, so I had to add another half cup of ammonia and Dawn to the bottle.
Well it seems awful thick.. Is the real Shout that thick? Here's much it costs to make- approximately. The ammonia was $1.12 for 64 oz, a mere $.14 for one cup! So say the 16 oz Dawn is $1.39.. That's about 35 cents a cup.. So the 32 ounces of Homemade SHOUT costs me $.49 more or less!! Shout is on sale 2 for $5.00 at Weis right now! So I'm saving at least $2.00 if not more, right?

  1. The Homemade SHOUT got thinner as it sat in my cupboard above the washer.
