I understand your voice of concern. It's sound practice to not use any products that has the possibility of containing ammonia for brass. However, IIRC in the past few years manufacturers of products have been required to disclose any and all chemicals in their products. The MSDS has been a pretty darn reliable source to find out what's in products. If ammonia isn't listed for the makeup of Dawn and no significant negative reports have been sited, I'd trust using it.
If it were up to me, the word "got" would be deleted from the English language.
