Garbage enzyme

The garbage enzyme Caitlin made at her holiday camp is now ready to use after its three-month fermentation period.

What is garbage enzyme? You can get all the info you need from this site.

According to the site, "Garbage enzyme is a complex solution produced by fermentation of fresh kitchen waste (fruits and vegetables dregs), sugar (brown sugar, jaggery or molasses sugar) and water. It is dark brown and has a strong sweet sour fermented scent. Garbage enzyme is a multipurpose liquid and its applications covers household, agriculture, animal husbandry etc. Garbage enzyme is the solution to recover our ozone layer and lower the global temperature.

From day one you start making garbage enzyme, its catalyses process will release ozone gas (O3). O3 can reduce carbon dioxide (C02) 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. Enzyme convert ammonia to nitrate (NO3), a natural hormone and nutrient for plants. Meanwhile it converts carbon dioxide to carbonate (C03) which is beneficial to sea plants and marine life."


This is a good way to save the earth and also save money. Your kitchen waste will not be wasted, you do your part in preventing global warming, and you are not at risk from exposing yourself to the harmful chemicals in the daily cleaning products you usually use.

Garbage enzyme can be used as natural household cleaner; air purifier; deodoriser; insecticide; detergent; body care; car care: organic fertiliser, etc

It removes odour, dissolves toxic air released from smoking, car exhaust, chemical residues from household products, etc.

It aslo purifies underground water: enzyme that flows underground will eventually purify the river and the sea.

Natural pesticides: Reduce mosquitoes, flies, rats or cockroaches etc.

Anti-bacterial and virus: Natural antiseptic for your home.

Prevent drainpipe blockage: Release residues accumulated in the pipe of basins or toilet bowls.


I've just used it to mop my sticky floor. I think it's a good substitute for floor cleaning detergents. Helps me save money, save the environment, prevent my skin from getting rashes and long-term bad effects of using and inhaling chemical-based cleaning agents.

Next,I will use the enzyme to wash toilets, dishes, clean vegetables, and bathe Rusty with it.

You should give it a try. Chemical and soap-based solutions should be out of our homes if possible.
