I have one cleaning bucket and it is stained yellow with iodine. I want to use ammonia to get the labels off from my bottles and clean the crud out of the bottom as I have a few bottles that none of the following will remove: water jet fixture, bottle brush, bleach soaking, oxiclean soaking, hot water with soap soaking.

Apparently, it works for the most caked on mold there is and should be a solution to my problem. Before I go mixing this ammonia in my cleaning bucket I'm wondering if any of you have any experience with this. I read (and saw on youtube) that ammonia and idiodine can make an explosive mixture (i.e.; touch powder), especially when dry.
I don't want the bucket blowing up in my face. Is there any danger here? Or, as long as I rinse this thing out and dump it down the drain with lots of water everything will be ok?
