Convert waste to soap

Updated: Jul 3, 2022

Use multipurpose liquid from organic waste.

Benefits of eco-enzyme:


Eco enzyme is a multipurpose liquid produced from fermented organic waste which can be used to replace multiple household product. It can eliminate the need to add any harmful ingredients and can be used on its own or added as part of your liquid soap dilution.


Converting waste to eco enzyme also helps to reduce the amount of organic waste piling up in landfills.


Eco enzyme liquids can be used for:

- Floor cleaner

- Toilet cleaner

- Kitchen cleaner

- Dishwashing liquid

- Air purifier

- Clothes detergent

- Body wash and hair care

- Pesticide

- Fertilizer


 

How to make eco-enzyme at home


Things you need:

Citrus Fruit Peels*

Brown SugarWater

Air Tight Plastic Container**


Note:

*You can also use other fruits or vegetables but we love the scent of citrus peels most.

** Plastic material is preferred to avoid the container from exploding when gasses built up.


Instructions:

  1. Measure - Use ratio 10:3:1 to measure the ingredients. (10g brown sugar, 30g of citrus fruit peels, 100g of water). Adjust accordingly with the available waste.

  2. Mix - Mix all ingredients into the plastic container and stir.

  3. Fermentation - Close the container until it is airtight at a sheltered place. Open the container once a week to release trapped gasses.

After 3 months, you can filter the liquid for use. The organic waste residue can be used as fertilisers.
