The general side effects from being too close to ammonia and ammonia fumes are things like irritation or burning in your eyes, nose, mouth, throat, lungs, or anywhere else where there is sensitive skin or a mucous membrane. It will be the same for pets too, but potentially more irritating for them than for people because their noses are generally more sensitive, and they are smaller so the exposure can feel “larger” to them. I would say follow the same precautions with your pets: open the windows when you can, keep them away from the oven and move any cages out of the area overnight, etc. But in general, if you and/or your pets aren’t sticking your head in the oven with the ammonia, or if you’re not working in a very small enclosed kitchen with no airflow, you may notice the ammonia smell and it may be irritating, but won’t harm you.

Hmm, it might be, depending on how much of the fumes escape the oven through the vents. If you leave the apartment to go to work, perhaps you could try setting it up in the morning before you go to work? The other option is just to open some windows to help air out the fumes; after they escape the oven they aren’t helping anymore anyways, and you just don’t want to be breathing them in cuz they are pretty strong and smell bad.

It is all connected. S that a problem using ammonia in the stove since I sleep in same room?

You don’t want to plug the vents because you don’t want the fumes to build up inside the oven. You could definitely try again with more than a cup of ammonia, and be sure the oven is warmed up first (but then that you turn the oven off before adding ammonia!)

But the oven method didn’t make a dent and had the same baked on mess in the morning. I suspect the fumes just went out the oven vent – maybe plugging it? Or use more than a cup of ammonia?
