How To Make Bio-Enzymes – Part II
• mrs reynd
This post continues from where I left off on Bio Enzymes. If you have not read that post, please start there. Once you have prepared the bio-enzyme, you can bottle them for different uses. I am including a video (see end of the post) showing the same.
There are three layers of the bio-enzyme -- a thin translucent layer, a thick layer and finally the pulp. The thin layer is the topmost layer, which can be readily used in the washing machine and floor cleaning. The thick layer is the middle (second) layer which can be used for dish washing, as a pest repellent, for glass cleaning etc. This layer can also be filtered in a cloth to obtain a more clear layer for washing and floor purposes. I mix the first and second layer and use it as one product.
The third layer (bottom most) is primarily the leftover peels. This layer can be used for cleaning tough stains like chimneys, rust, stoves etc. This layer can also be used as a starter for your next batch of bio-enzyme. When used as a starter, your next batch will be ready within 30-40 days compared to a three month period.
Various combinations can be done for these bio-enzymes. When you include more flowers, you can eliminate the need for any fragrance oils. My favorite combination is citrus peels in combination with soap nuts, neem leaves, and any flowers. With repeated use, you will notice that your clothes, skin are much more softer. Since having switched to these natural cleaners, its very hard for anyone to go back to the store bought ones. As always, if you need any hand holding, do let me know.
