5.11 My Alternatives to Synthetic Products?

Bioenzymes are a wonderful gift from the nature. Obtained by fermenting the fruit peels, they can be used for cleaning rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and all kinds of organic matters.

Bioenzymes act as a multi-purpose agent that can be used for a versatile range of applications. Other functions include plant growth booster and anti-mildew.

Bioenzymes are environment-friendly and has no polluting effects!

How do Bioenzymes work?

Bioenzymes contain non-pathogenic, ‘good’ bacteria. These bacteria have the property to digest the waste (grime, dust & stains). They do so by producing enzymes that are capable of breaking down waste molecules into smaller pieces (soil). These smaller pieces become the food for the bacteria. The bacteria consume the soil / waste & break them into two basic compounds – carbon dioxide & water. The bacteria grow in numbers and continue to digest the waste until their food supply diminishes (till the waste particles remain).

Are Bioenzymes Safe?

Absolutely safe since they are composed of non-pathogenic, ‘good’ bacteria.

In fact, Bioenzymes are safer for both environment and human health as compared to other conventional chemical products! The micro-organisms have the ability to penetrate into small cracks & crevices to eliminate waste & odours which normal chemicals can’t. They can help displacing disease causing pathogenic bacteria!

Bioenzymes are safer for infants & pets too!

Application of Bio-Enzymes

Additionally, it can also,

Cleanse Air – spray to bring down indoor pollutants at home / office / car

Revive Waterbodies – restore eco-balance by pouring bioenzyme to lakes / ponds.

Specifically for farming

The residue can be used as a fertilizer. Dry it well and mix it with soil. You can put it in your composting bin

Diluted Bio Enzyme is also used as a liquid nutrient or liquid fertilizer for plants.

Dilute it 1:50 for roots-on, 1:100 as a foliar spray

Bio-enzyme can be prepared in the reusable plastic containers or soild plastic buckets, as they have a certain elasticity which is required for the gases that are formed, as the plastic containers can expand due to the slight pressure that gets formed because of these gases.

Lemon Peels, Water and Jaggery are the ingredients for making the bio enzymes. Even fruit plup remains from a juice shop is good. Whole fruits need not be used, just the peels. However, if it’s the first batch, it is better to use only citrus fruit peels / skin

It is absolutely fine if you get the crumbs / leftovers of jaggery – also called chira in Hindi, which remains in the bottom of the jaggery making pan in the jaggery making factory or the container in which the shopkeepers store the jaggery.

The first batch takes 3 months and the subsequent batches in one month.

The bio enzymes can be preserved life long.
