Garbage Enzyme - Natural Home Antiseptic

Turn your kitchen wastes (fruits and vegetables) to valuable DIY cleaners and at the same time help recover ozone layer and lower global temperature.

Garbage enzyme is produced by the fermentation of kitchen wastes (fruits and vegetables) together with brown sugar and water. This process will release ozone gas (O3) which will reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and heavy metal that traps heat in the cloud. Hence heat can be released from the Earth, reducing greenhouse and global warming effects.

How To Make Garbage Enzyme
1. 1 part sugar
2. 3 parts fruit/vegetable dregs
3. 10 parts water

* Dilute sugar in water. Add in fruit/vegetable dregs
* Leave about a third of space in air tight plastic container for fermentation
* Close it tight
* During first month, open cap twice a day to release gas
* Push the floating garbage downward once in a while
* Place in cool ventilated area
* Ferment for 3 months before use

Usage:
+ As natural herbicides, fertiliser and to improve quality of fruits
+ Floor cleaner
+ Dish washer
+ Air purifier
+ As far as your imagination can stretch

innerjourney,
i've just started to make garbage enzyme. Some people say can use rotten veges and the like and some say cannot. what is the correct one?

hello delia. you can use practically anything from the kitchen except avoid meat and the likes of it as it will become very smelly. you can use peels of fruits or vege etc but for myself i use fruits only. i go to the local fruit seller and ask if i can buy their discarded fruits. normally they will gladly give them to you free of charge. and their fruits are not really rotten. fruits give you a very fragrant smell when you open the bottle cover. remember to open them daily for the first month. and use plastic bottle. have fun

I do alot of juicing and so would like to ask if I can include in the fruit fibres left over from juicing to make the garbage enzyme. Thank you.

hi bee
yes u can add the fibre to make garbage enzyme. but anything that you add on daily or weekly, 3 months from the date of your add will be the maturity date of the garbage enzyme. and of course accordingly you will have to add in the ratio of brown sugar to whatever you have added in. easiest will be go to the local fruit seller. they will be glad that someone wants their rotten fruits. but the fruits are really not that rotten. they are just spoilt
have fun
