When it comes to cleaning a home with children, we always want the best yet safest products. When it comes to good, toxic free and eco-friendly products, it’s always the price which turns us off a bit. Saving the environment is just so expensive!
What if I told you that YOU could make YOUR OWN eco-friendly, toxic free cleaner? It’s honestly really simple. Not only is it good for cleaning, it can also be used for gardening AND it helps with reducing global warming!! How perfect it that? You get 100% toxic free cleaner which fertilizes your plants and helps save the world. Hero? For sure!
Here’s how you do it with just 4 things
- An air tight container
- one cup if sugar or molasses
- 3 cups of organic waste (no meat)
- 10 cups of water
mix all of these together and put into the container.
For instance, add 100gs of sugar with 300gs of fruit skins, pour in 1ltr of water and mix well in a plastic bottle and cap tightly. Keep in a cool dry place at room temperature. Release the gases formed once a day for the first month. Make sure it is re-capped tightly each time after the gas is released. For the 2nd and 3rd month, only release any gases if necessary. There may be times when there is a white layer on the surface of the enzyme solution during fermentation. Should worms/maggots appear in your enzyme solution, don’t freak out, this is normal. Just add a handful of sugar, mix well and cap tightly. The maggots will disappear overnight!
Fermentation process will take 3 months. after filtering and removing the residue, garbage enzyme is then obtained. The residue can the be use for either a new batch of production by adding fresh organic waste following the direction as above or you can dry the residue, blend it then bury it in the ground as fertilizer.
Garbage enzyme has many great uses for the environment, agriculturally and van even be used in homes!
For agriculture, garbage enzyme is used:
-to reduce the usage of chemial fertilizers
-to keep a farm free from insects and infections
-a soil fertilizer for growing vegetables

global warming can be reduced tremendously by using garbage enzymes if every household produces and uses enzymes. Together, we an make a difference!
