by Anant Khare 13 Dec 2021

Bacteria are a pain, but try to think of it this way. They're like your kids. They're never going to listen to you, no matter how much you beg them to clean up and clean off the table that they've been making a mess on! You can't get mad at them and scream at them (well you can, but that doesn't help anything), but you can't just give in and give up either! You have to find a middle ground to deal with your pesky offspring -- or in this case, your house bacteria.

Bio enzyme cleaners are a great way to get rid of pesky bacteria and dirt. It expertly cleans your home without leaving any harmful toxins behind. Here’s how you can make your own bio enzyme cleaner:

What you’ll need:
  • Water
  • Citrus fruit peels
  • Jaggery
  • Large container
  • Time

10: 3: 1 Keep this magic number in mind if you want your home made cleaner to work.

  • Take a large container and add 10 parts of water.
  • Now add 3 parts of citrus peels to it.
  • Lastly, add 1 part of jaggery.

Stir the mix and store it in the airtight container. Make sure that the container is not full to the brim. The solution needs some air to start the fermentation process. Once the mix is ready, keep it in a dark place and stir it once a day to aerate it. After a week, you can start stirring the solution once every 2 days.

Usually, after a week, a white film may start forming on the top. Don’t worry if that happens, it’s a part of the fermentation process. It will take at least 90 days for your homemade cleaner to get ready for action. Once 90 days have passed, make sure to do a patch test on dirt to determine if the cleaner needs more fermentation or not. If it cleans the stain, your cleaner is ready. You can strain the solution and store it in any bottle of your choice. Bio enzyme cleaners aren’t naturally soapy in nature, so if you want the soapy slip, you can add reetha powder to it.

There are many benefits of using a bio enzyme cleaner. It can be used to remove stains from your kitchen, bathroom, carpet etc. Not only that but you can use it to clean and disinfect any part of your home or bathroom.

Making a bio enzyme cleaner at home is simple but you’ll need a couple of trials and errors to reach make the perfect batch. If you do not want to spend 90 days on making a cleaner, try The Better Home’s floor cleaner liquid. This enzyme-based deep cleaner is great for any hard surfaces. It is all-natural and super-efficient to get rid of gunk and bacteria around the house.
