You want pure ammonia with no Sufactants or dyes in it.

If you can't find ammonia just throw in a raw shrimp from the supermarket. As it rots it will release the ammonia you need. It takes a little longer but it works just as well."At some point you aren't making the animal more dead...You are just making a bigger mess." - Demjor19
