How to Make Enzyme Cleaner


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
  • Marker
  • 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.
