Removing tough stains around the house can require a harsh chemical cleaner and a lot of elbow grease. But there is an easier and safer way to clean in your home. Enzyme cleaners use powerful enzymes to break up stains on a molecular level, meaning that the cleaner does all the work, saving you hours of scrubbing. This recipe for a homemade enzyme cleaner is also all natural, and leaves behind no harmful residue or dangerous fumes.
Things You'll Need
- 300 grams of citrus scraps
- 100 grams of brown sugar
- 1 liter of water
- 2-liter or larger plastic bottle
Place 300 grams of citrus scraps into the bottle. If they do not fit through the mouth of the bottle feel free to cut the scraps into smaller pieces.
Add 100 grams of brown sugar to the citrus scraps.
Pour one liter of water into the bottle with the citrus scraps and brown sugar, then screw the cap onto the bottle.
Shake the bottle vigorously until the ingredients have mixed together well and all of the brown sugar has dissolved. This should take 30 seconds to a minute of shaking.
Write the day and month you put the mixture together somewhere on the bottle.
Let the solution sit for three months so that it can properly ferment, then add half a cup of the mixture to a liter of water and use it as you would any store-bought household cleaner.
