I have. It's okay but liquid hydrogen peroxide is better...IMHO .

mamaprovides, what's your method for using liquid H2O2?

If I have to get rid of ammonia build up, I do a second soak after baking soda. I find this works best across the board. Helps get rid of stains and rinses out.

Also, if I wash and they still smell, I will do an extra rinse in peroxide with a clear rinse after.

I find this more effective and not as harsh on the fabric than oxyclean.

I find oxyclean works fine, its results are not long lasting like bleach though.  Nothing beats a bit of bleach for stripping away, and keeping away, ammonia or any other weird funk- at least on cotton.
