(DIY#17)自制环保垃圾酵素 ECO (Garbage) Enzyme D.I.Y

前几天一位朋友Lee 留言介绍垃圾酵素对环境的好处, 他认为除了要照顾体内环保的同时也有责任要照顾地球的环保. 我当然认同啦, 我也有在做环保酵素, 之前也有介绍过[垃圾酵素万人讲座].

我做的环保酵素的材料有点不同, 我用的是白砂糖不是黑糖. 我用白砂糖是有原因的:
第一: 白砂糖最便宜,在马来西亚,白砂糖是价格统制品, 1kg 才 RM1.45
第二: 白砂糖是精制糖,对身体有害; 把有害的东西制成对环境有益的环保酵素,也算是种功德吧.
第三: 白砂糖制成的环保酵素颜色比较浅,要用来洗浅色的衣服也没问题.(当然也要注意其他材料的颜色)

但也有人非议用白糖会太浪费, 因为在饥荒的国家,一匙的白糖可以救活人命, 但我不想卷入这种无谓的争论,因为我自认不是个浪费的人,而且我平时是不嗜糖的, 家里的白糖纯粹是拿来制环保酵素的. 如果你同意我的说法,以下是我的环保酵素做法:

garbage enzyme

材料: 1 : 3 : 10
白砂糖 1 kg (1 kg of White Sugar)

厨余(新鲜的果皮或蔬菜) 3kg (3 kg of Kitchen Waste)

自来水 10 liter (10 liter of Tap Water)

1 个有盖塑胶容器 ( 1 unit of Plastic container )

做法:
1.把所有的材料放入大小适当的塑胶容器, 搅匀. Put all ingredients in the container and mix well.
2.盖上盖子好,发酵3个月便成. Close the lid & let it ferment for 3 months.

以下是发酵中的垃圾酵素:

  1. 我也制作和用了多年了. 你出运费, 我可送你一瓶试试有没有功效 🙂
    当初人们用Brown Sugar 可能是因为价格便宜, 但我们国家情况刚好相反.

  2. mr enzymo …

    i in total agreement with u … hahaha … cos i also use white sugar for the garbage enzyme … reasons ??? like wat u have cited …

    to me … sugar acts as natural preservative n food for the baterial … so it does not really matter wat type of sugar … to me … the most economy the better la … hahaha …

  3. 凡夫俗子 & Thomas,
    Thank you for both your tips on the usage of garbage enzymes. I guess we could also use it as a foot soak / foot spa in the absence of a bath tub…hehe.

    We access this forum at different hours so it’s a bit hard to get the chat going.

    How’s your red yeast rice fermentation going, Thomas? May be you can share with us your experience.

  4. hi joyful …

    u r most welcome … that is the only purpose i log on here … to share n learn from ppl like u abt diy enzyme …

    u may b quite right that u can use it as foot spa … cos i read an article that there is an old man of 70 yrs old in penang … he is a diabetic patient … with sore feet … to the extent the dr too has become helpless as wat to do with him …

    someone suggested he soak his feet in the eco-enzyme … to his surprise his feet got better by day … the wounds / sore have dried up … n he can walk without the pain he use to bear …

    i can post u the site if u want … cheers … to see is believing … u can see the man with his sored feet … cheers …

  5. Mr Enzymo,

    I have try to used the organic cane sugar + fresh fruit only for garbage enzymes, the colour is light yellow, very nice & the smell is very good. I used it on cleaning my face, haaaa..
    I know, the cane sugar is much expensive than brown sugar, but, the colour is very sweet. Well, am I doing the 环保(垃圾)酵素 if I used the organic cane sugar?
    I think, i should try to use white sugar also, coz the price is much cheaper. I really use a lot of garbage enzymes at home now.

  6. Hi, you can make red yeast rice enzyme?
    I’m very interested in it.
    Would you teach me how to make it????
    Thanks a lot!

  7. hi yucca …
    u must b rich … hahaha … using organic cane sugar + fresh fruit for eco-enzyme … but so long u feel happy … y not ???
    if u really like to add in some color into ur eco-enzyme … i suggest u add in some beet root peel … it will give u pinkish colouring … very sweet color indeed …
    btw … my family too use the eco-enzyme for face cleansing … the mixture is 1 part of eco-enzyme + 10 part of water … just wet ur cotton ball n wipe ur face with it …n rinse off with water after 5 – 10 mins …
    cheers …

  8. yucca,
    I agree with 凡夫俗子 but anyway “a penny saved is a penny earned”.

    joyce,
    actually i have plan to make the red yeast rice wine but I feel uncomfortable with yeast & high alcohol content, so I am still undecided.

  9. 凡夫俗子

    Awesome!! Seeing is believing, you are right, thanks for the link. I am going to treat myself a foot spa tonight when I get home…hehe. I will try to mix it into shampoo and shower gel too and later will I try on my children.

    If you use beet root or pitaya peels, would it give your face a red stain? Peeling pitaya stains my hands for a day woh…. I don’t want to look like Chinese opera singer, face red red one….

    Thomas,
    If red yeast rice contains high alcohol, then it’s not for me liao….

  10. hi, 凡夫俗子
    I’m not rich la ! I was wrongly purchase the cane sugar, so, i just used it, 环保 , right?
    haaaa. Where can i buy the beet root ? market?

    Thomas,
    Thank you so much for your kindness to teaching us on making enzymes. Very appreciate. I will try to make Yugurt enzymes for my girl & other type also, one by one….Thanks

  11. hi … yucca … i m just kidding that u r rich … hahaha … no offence huh ???

    u can get beet root in wet / supermarket … i know it is not very common vege among chinese community …

    it is called “tian cai tou” … or “sheng di” or “shou di” in chinese herb shop … “sheng di” is raw but dried tian cai tou whereas “shou di” is steamed dried tian cai tou … used by chinese herbalist …

    imported beet root is more rounded … darker skin … n blood red juice … it bleeds literally when cut … whereas local beets from cameron r not so rounded … pales skin … does not bleed as much …

  12. hi joyful …

    u only add in some beet root peel … hahaha …it wont stain ur face red red la … it it really does … y not … u can save a lot on cosmetic for blushing ur cheeks …

  13. Joyce,
    what I meant was 红曲, the bi-product of red yeast rice wine.

    斯仪,
    我看到你也在做垃圾酵素, 但我因为换了”麦金塔”不知何故不能在Blogger里用中文留言.
    用什么糖其实是没差,因为糖是给菌吃的,只是白糖便宜多了.

    严格来讲, 当初有人提倡做垃圾酵素用的所谓的 “Brown Sugar” 其实是 Gula Perang 是一种颜色很深的糖,里面还有挺多甘蔗渣和杂物的一种raw sugar 价格也便宜,现在在杂货店还买得到,以公斤计算. 而超市卖的 Gula Merah 其实是用白砂糖混合 molasses 而成,也就是白糖被molasses包着,所以有点湿湿的. 真正比较无害的是 organic raw cane sugar, 样子干干和白糖一样只是颜色带点黄.
    无论如何, 糖类都是无益的,我们从碳水化物里所得到的糖份已经够多了, 其他的糖类还是用来做酵素吧. …..不好意思又长篇大论了.

    yucca,
    Beetroot is 甜菜根, you can see the photo in my Photo Gallery 1 [here].

  14. Haha 凡夫俗子,
    You are real funny…I don’t mind if it is cheek, but what if it gets to the forehead or nose (worst)?

    I added lemon grass to lemon peels for my last batch of eco-enzyme. I heard this combination can repel mosquitoes, don’t know effective or not. “Citronella” is the name as I was told.

  15. hi joyful …
    as u nickname implies … i just wanna to add a touch of humous … otherwise it wld b so boring la …
    ya … i do add in lemon grass n pandan leaves too in my eco-enzyme …
    sometime i also add in my enzyme fruit residual … no waste huh ??? one of my favourite add-on is the residual of my bell pepper enzyme …
    i use the traffic light series bell peppers ie … red + green yellow bell peppers + ginger + onion + gralic to diy enzyme …
    the result ??? incredible ….

  16. 真抱歉,之前電腦壞了,中文時有時無。
    所以您不會做紅麴酵素???聽說很好…

  17. Hi, I want to try garbage enzyme, can I use any kind of kitchen waste ? I heard that there are certain kind of vege or fruit cannot be used ? Also, if we apply the enzyme on the wall , it can get rid of ants and lizard ? is that true ? I really hate lizard !

  18. I am not aware of vege & fruits that cannot be used, mind to share? oh…..maybe mangosteen skin is not suitable to use in washing enzyme bcos of the color?

  19. Hi May, I personally prefer fruit skin especially papaya, pineapple, lemon, etc, they gave very nice fragrant. Yes the garbage enzyme is very very effective especially to lizards. I typically don’t see any insect at my home now. I’m using them to wash my clothes, so using colored fruits like red dragonfruits skin is definitely out of the way, eventhough the color will be “digested” eventually if we left it longer for fermentation, but I just don wanna take the risk.

  20. I am not sure too, I heard my sister in Australia told me something that cannot be used, I will ask her later, anyway, its good that every vege & fruits can be used, how about pineapple skin ? If I can’t get enough kitchen wastes at one time, can I gathered all in then only I add the sugar later ?

  21. Hi May, Pineapple skin is good. FYI, Most skin are good, e.g papaya, apple, lime, lemon, orange, banana, mango. In actual fact those that I don’t use are husky kind of skin like mangosteen, coconut. I try to avoid fruits with strong smell like durian. I extremely like lime, lemon, orange and grape fruit, they gave very nice smell to the enzyme.

  22. may …
    all citrus fruit peels r just great … u may add in pandan leave or lemon grass too … they are supposed to be good pest repellents …
    i have tried add in red dragon fruit … beets peel … into my diy eco-enzyme … the color turned out very sweet n nice …
    no worry … it wont stain ur white shirt … unless u use the load full of eco-enzyme to wash ur clothes … ahaha … a capful of the eco-enzyme with a loadful of water … wont stain ur shirt la … cheers …

  23. 大家好,第一次留言. 制作环保酵素一个月多, 发现自己和孩子的皮肤变得很柔滑, 脸部多年来的”老豆”也不见了! 百思不得其解, 可能发酵的过程中改善了空气质素而让我们受益了, 真开心, 请问有没有相同的经验?

  24. joyce & 俐臻;
    我会把我对”第一個月是酒、第二個月是醋、第三個月是酵素”的看法弄个新的post.

    凡夫俗子 原子小金刚 & others
    Feel free to offer your answer to those who have put up their Qs,if you are able to. I am a little busy lately.

  25. enzymo君,
    拍照, 我吗? 不好意思叻… 不过有点后悔没拍下之前之后的特写照做证明, 但认识我的人都会问我用了什么让皮肤变好了, 我不敢说因为自己也不确定是不是制作环保酵素发酵的过程中改善了空气质素而让我受益了, 以免误导甚至神化了酵素, 所以想请问其他人有没有相同的经验? 谢谢.

  26. 大家好。我的环保酵素已经有三个多月了。我觉得我的酵素很粘。是不是太多渣了?用不了,tapis 的时候太多粘粘的物体留在网上,所以酵素流不出来。请各位帮帮忙。

  27. 对了,忘了告诉你们,我放了好多的番石榴种子在里面(跟一个卖番石榴的人拿的)

  28. 一点小分享: 用环保酵素浸洗制做食用酵素的菓菜, 所做的酵素会发得很美很好, 而且喝了也安心不必担心洗不干净的农药. 我做了三瓶的木瓜酵素发到好美, 比我之前做的黄梨酵素更加多泡, 下星期就收成了! 🙂

  29. 我在做龙珠果酵素时曾经遇过同样的问题, 所以才会加深我认为种子会在酵素液里产生[抗发芽及抗酵素]的物质, 可能是这些物质产生一层保护膜….但我不确定, 所以我几乎不用种子做酵素. 如果你有这方面的经验或看法,分享一下………………

  30. 心涵 …
    ya … i think u put in too much fruit peel … generally the ratio is 3 kg of fruit / vege peels + 1 kg sugar + 10 lit of water …
    but this is only a guideline for newie … with experience … u wont need to follow … just look see look see … u will know if u got the correct mixture …
    i may suggest u add in some water to dilute ur eco-enzyme … but u must add in some more sugar … give it a quick stir … n let it sit another 10 days or so ???

  31. 我所谓的环保酵素指的是垃圾酵素。现在我在放多一些水和白糖,希望可以用得着,不然的话,就白费心机了。

  32. 心涵,
    我知道你讲的是垃圾酵素,但万变不离其宗,原理是一样的.
    你照凡夫俗子的说法做做看吧.

  33. 心涵
    sorry … i can read chinese but cant write … hahaha …
    i have tried to divide the eco-enzyme into two containers … cos it was thick like wat u said …
    i diluted it with water to the concentration that i wanted… n added sugar n gave it a good stir … let it sit for another 2 weeks …
    the eco enzyme came out ok …

  34. Hi 心涵, 我相信您用的种子比率太多了,因为有些种子/豆类发酵后会有粘液,如果一定要用,尽量蔬菜/果皮对种子的比率多些会比较好。凡夫俗子的提议应该会有帮助。

    我有读到一个研究文章,日本科学家发现并正大量制作这种“粘液”,它吸水性很强又可以与泥土混在一起然后可以遗址到沙漠作种植用途,久后又会自我分解。

  35. 原子小金刚,
    谢谢你, 注意看 wikipedia 的后半部里有一张种子照片下有写到 ” To discourage seed predators, pulses contain trypsin inhibitors that interfere with digestion. ” 这是说明种子是不适宜食用的, 至少不可以生食. 同意吗?

  36. seed is the source of life … the CREATOR has provided the enzyme inhibitor to ensure the seed r protected and can safely germinate into seedling when the condition is right … hence … many type of seeds r toxic especially if eaten raw … i think that is why when i was kid … grandma always tell us not to swallow the seeds … otherwise they will grow on the head … hahaha …

  37. 凡夫俗子,
    Exactly ! This is what I have been trying to tell ppl that seeds must not be eaten raw, we can either cook them & let them germinate before consumption.

  38. Hi Thomas, 非常同意,不只会影响消化,严重的还会影响新陈代谢。所以平时剩下来的种子我会收起来,偶尔会选一些来种。

    Hi Joyce, 不好意思,之前我是在 http://web-japan.org/trends01/ 看到的,回去找已经找不到那个文章了。不过还有其他不错的文章如“Green Plastic”,原来日本政府强治所有饮食/食物业主必须负责循环所有食物垃圾。

  39. I have made a batch of eco-enzyme using pineapple, lime, limau kasturi peels with white sugar just to try out, an alternative for brown sugar. I adhere to the 1:3:10 ratio and no seeds in it. It turned slimmy after a few days with white mold on top. I never encounter this before when I was using brown sugar. Could white sugar be the reason for the slime?

    I hope it will turn out clear after 3 months.

    心涵, did you use white sugar?

  40. hi joyful …
    don worry abt the white mold … technically it is the yeast formation, rich in vitamin B … hahaha …
    if u don like th sight of it … give it a good stir … say weekly ??? it will go away in no time …
    i only used brown sugar for the very 1st time … … the later batches … i used only white sugar … all turned out ok … n just as effective …
    cheers …

  41. 最近经常听说环保酵素的好处,我也想尝试。我听同事的母亲说最好只用水果皮,因为菜渣会生虫。在发酵的过程中,可以翻搅吗? 3个月后是不是需要把果皮拿出来?

  42. hi … qq …
    u can use both the fresh not rotten fruit / vege peel … but ensure they are washed clean …
    we find worms in the eco-enzyme is mostly becos the peels are not clean … n the container is not close tightly … when flies get in there … they will lay eggs … which will lead to worms …
    u can stir the eco-enzyme regularly during the fermentation process … otherwise u will get white mold forming … though it does not matter but there r ppl who don like the sight of white mold …
    u can sieve the eco-enzyme after 3-month … the residual can be used as plant fertiliser or u can pour it into the drain …

  43. Hi joyful, I’ve been using white sugar and there isn’t any problem, we need to stir the residue once in a while and have patience. BTW what is limau kasturi, sorry i’m from S’pore.

    Hi QQ, 用水果皮当然是比较好,在发酵的过程中必须适当的翻搅,你放一两年都不会腐烂的。

  44. 原子小金刚 … limau kasturi … is another type of lime … bigger though … the size of a mandarin oranges but green yellowish in color …

  45. Hi 原子小金刚,

    Limau Kasturi is 金桔 or 桔子 to my understanding….that’s what I mean anyway. Sorry, I forgot that not everybody here understands Bahasa Malaysia.

    I use 桔子 and honey to make enzymes for three weeks. After straining it, I add apple cider vinegar and honey (1 part honey 1 part ACV) to the residue and soak it for 1 to 2 months or longer to make fruit vinegar.
    After harvesting the vinegar, I store the residue in the fridge for snacks.
    I then add 1 tbspn 桔子 enzyme, 1 tbspn 桔子vinegar and half a glass of water for a very refreshing drink espeacially after a heavy meal. Try it 🙂

  46. Hi 原子小金刚 & 凡夫俗子,

    Ok, I’ll stir the slimy eco-enzymes more often then.
    I had just added some mint leaves I planted (Mentha Arvensis or commonly known as Field Mint, Wild Mint or Corn Mint) into it hopefully it will smell good.

    Thanks for both your advices.

  47. ok, got it. Thx for the info.

    I juz informed the lady boss of the fruit stall to keep all the fruits peel to me. So i need to wash before making ?

  48. 多谢大家的帮忙。哈哈,我的盖发现了几只白虫!谢谢凡夫俗子刚有提到的虫,所以我放心了。还以为我的环保酵素拜拜了。
    Joyful,ya i used white sugar.
    我的环保酵素的味道怪怪的,有点酸,但颜色还好,没有黑色的霉。(可能是我现在怀孕,对味道很敏感。)
    我家没有桶了,所以我想拿掉一些渣,但已经加了水和糖。
    对了,孕妇闻到这味道,胎儿会受影响吗?

  49. Hi QQ, 我做过一桶纯菜叶的(跟卖菜的uncle拿的), 味道很怪像咸菜后来我加了一些橙皮调味, 黄梨皮做成像醋除污效果显著, 柑桔类比较香(除蚊), 也可以加班兰叶(香味; 除蟑螂), 香茅(除蚂蚁和蚊子), 当然综合的是最好因为”什么都可以…” 🙂

  50. 心涵
    its only nornal the eco-enzyme taste n smell sour …. cos after 3-mth fermentation it has become vinegar-like … so not to worry … in fact the function of eco-enzyme n vinegar are almost the same for household cleaning … just that if we use vinegar for household cleaning purpose … it will cost us a bomb … furthermore most of the white veinegar we buy from supermarket are chemically produced … still prefer the eco-enzyme which organic base …

    QQ … i always prefer to clean the vege / fruit peel for the eco-enzyme … especially if u collect it from the fruit stall … once there are flies laying eggs on the peel … the chance u see worms in ur eco-enzyme is high … cleanliness n hygiene is always wat i believe is a must in diy enzyme n eco-enzyme …

  51. Hi Joyful, don’t have to stir them unnecessary, do it when the fruit peels float up, jus to prevent the top fruit peel from getting dry and make sure they are consistently submerge into the liquid (it’ll rot & grow fungus if they’re dry), thats all we need to do.

    Hi 心涵, 发素的气体不是毒素所以可以安心,如果密封好果蝇或生虫的现象会很少,不过几天后它们都会被“消化”掉,所以不用担心。

    Hi Cynthia, 我发现环保酵素本身就会除蚊,蟑螂,蚂蚁尤其是壁虎,环保酵素发素的气体也有这个功能。不一定要特别加什么植物。

  52. Hi 原子小金刚, 环保酵素本身就会除蚊, 蟑螂, 蚂蚁, 壁虎没错(但我觉得持效不长, 今天拖地没蚂蚁, 明天味道没了它就来了), 但是你可以试试再加些班兰叶和香茅(反正也不用钱)效果更强, 我用加了香茅的环保酵素加在我孩子的洗澡水, 蚊子都不敢kiss他了, 拖了两次地后蚂蚁也搬家了 🙂 试试看比较比较你就知道了 🙂

  53. 我的比较”杂不郎” 什么都有, 还有辣椒, 所以倒在地上,野狗也不来, 哈哈……….

  54. WHAA!!! Thomas, 您的那么“Sai Lei”!!!

    我的只是一些黄梨皮,木瓜皮,柠檬和橙皮。每一两个星期用清水加点环保酵素来抹地,效果也很棒。有可能环境不同把。以前作环保酵素前常常有蚂蚁和壁虎,之后全都“私奔”了。

  55. ya … mine also very “za ba lang” .. i put in chili, ginger, pandan leave, garlic … n lemon grass … so long they are fresh not rotten … i sapu all … the resulting eco-enzyme has a very unique pleasant aroma …

  56. Thomas,
    I was talking to a friend about eco-enzyme and he asked me a question I do not dare to answer due to my lack of knowledge. He asked me how do I know for sure if the toxic chemical compound on the skin of fruits be dissolved during the process of fermentation.

    Do you have a link to any write up or research concerning this? Thanks

  57. joyful,
    Go to my “Knowledge Treasure 知识宝库” page and watch the video of “The Mysteries of Mycology … by Paul Stamets”
    You will see how fungi change the toxic waste into live & useable soil. After that do some research on what actually happen during fermentation, I am sure you will get your Qs answered by then. Come back and share your view. Happy Research. 🙂

  58. 我的老公突然问我,‘你的垃圾酵素不是用来驱蚊虫的吗?为什么越来越多的蚂蚁?’

  59. 最近市场上有很多百香果在卖, 前几天买了些来吃, 果皮照惯例拿来浸垃圾酵素, 几天后发出阵阵怪味, 好像 lao-sai 味, 要命这次连人都怕了 🙂

    哈哈心涵 , 你的垃圾酵素是还在浸着还是已经拿来用了, 我刚开始用时也觉得蚂蚁特多, 用多几次后它就会搬到隔壁了, 放心 🙂

  60. cynthia …
    not sure wat happened to ur passion fruit peel … i added 30 over passion fruit peel in my current batch … it smell like wat the name implies … bai xiang … a very sweet aroma … y urs is lao-sai smell … hahaha …

  61. Ya lor, at first I also love the name “百香果” and the fruit also very “香” when I eat, so I think it should have very nice aroma if I put the peel in my eco-enzyme, dun know what had happened leh, now become “百臭” :{ I quickly take out the passion fruit peel and threw away then add in a lot of lemon skin and pandan leaves … oh my god, never happened before … 🙂

  62. Hi !

    How did you all get so much fruits peel ? I have problem on getting the fruits peel. I asked the fruits stall boss and he promised to keep for me but ended up he treated me like beggar, throw me a big bag of rubbish included fruits peel with extremely bad attitude so i didn’t take and just leave, now still not able to get and start doing. Sigh….

  63. Hi QQ,

    Wah, so bad … sorry for your experience …

    I cook everyday for 2 meals, so will have quite a number of leaveoff veg and fruit peel (1 day about 300-400g, you can accumulate daily), if I do the consumption enzyme I will have more fuit peel (pineapple skin, papaya skin …), n after I harvest my consumption enzyme I will threw in the 果渣 which can’t eat (lemon, ginger, banana with skin …)

  64. QQ …
    why the stall boss so bad one ???
    if u cant gather so much peel … u can make small btl la … not necessary 3 kg lo …
    u can adjust the formula eg … 1 kg fruit peel + 300 gm of sugar + 3 lit of water …
    u still can get the eco-enzyme …
    cheers …

  65. No lah Thomas,
    Take it as a professional development and upgrade loh…you take enzymes everyday, won’t die so easy one….heh..heh….heh.

  66. hi joyful …
    ya … i read the article …
    nothing in this world is perfect … there r always 2 sides to a coin … depending which side u r looking …
    so i believe to be neutral or wat chinese scholar used to say … “zhon yon zhii dao” … they also said “you de bi you shi” … as long as i feel good … why not …
    cheers ….

  67. joyful,
    I can’t do it without whacking his funny argument but I dun want to do it lah ….
    He is from Institute of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Malaya specialize in Solid Waste Management, I am NOBODY.
    Anyway, whack little bit oklah…. He is complaining about Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in our country is increasing and only 5 % is recycled. According to his [study] 40% are organic waste, so what does he want us to do, throw or not to throw our organic waste?
    He said “flooding lakes and rivers with enzymes might be harmful…” So flooding lakes & rivers with chemical washing liquid much better, issit ???
    He also said “Since it involves fermentation of waste, there might be pathogens in the mixture.” . Come on, pathogens are everywhere, even in his mouths & saliva while he is talking. I dunno about you but I think he need to go to [Japan] and learn about [Effective Microorganism Technology] but NOT using my & your (tax payers) money.

  68. hahaha … bravo … mr enzymo …
    this is the reason y i nvr argue with ppl who said they don trust “enzyme” … usually i just smile … but to those who are interested but donno wat it is … i can go a long way to explain to them … even give them a btl of enzyme to try … i believe in “you yuan ren”
    the day we were born into this world … we got to take risk … there is no such things as riskless but calculated risk i believe … like my dharma master always said … yi qie sui yuan … bu pan yuan …
    amitofu … hahaha …

  69. 谢谢 joyful 跟我们分享这篇报道,第一次看时有点震撼再看第二次就发笑了,怎么跟那天与我说“酵素不能喝”的安娣一样可笑:

    1)安娣讲:酵素不能喝叻,有细菌 。。。(哗物取宠,引人注意)
    2)安娣讲:现在的水果跟以前的不一样,做出来的酵素也不一样,有毒,所以我不要学也
    不要做 。。。(酸葡萄,因为她不是第一个拿酵素来益街坊的)
    3)安娣讲:你问有什么毒?为什么?有什么证明?那天那个人讲英文我也不大懂,哎呀呀
    我肚子痛要去大便啦 。。。(断章取意,丢出疑问无法回答就逃之夭夭)

    哈哈哈 。。。

  70. OIC… actually my mother in law almost everyday also buy fruits and have in in the fridge but i worry cant keep the fruit peel for few days so never ask her to keep for me.

    Finally found a job and will be starting to work on next Monday. Im planning to make the fruits enzyme then can use the skin for the eco-enzyme, will make it next weekend then.

  71. QQ,
    You can get the water and sugar mix ready first, then you can throw in the fruits skin whenever you have it until you fill up the pail then only start counting the numbers of days. Just estimate the weight, no need to be so accurate. If you are worry you can increase the sugar weight slightly.

  72. Hi QQ,

    Great to hear you want to make the consumption enzyme too, you sure will addict to its taste n goodness 🙂

    One more secret : I use rice n fresh fruit n organic brown sugar to create my own S?II for skincare and bath (1 liter filter water + 100g organic brown sugar + 300g rice mix with f/fruit), the miracl? wat?r end up so fragrance n the result … hehehe, you can try … n it costs less then $5 …

  73. hi cynthia
    u mean using the rice + fruit (what fruit also can?) to make the skincare eco-enzyme?… how about if i just put the lemon.

  74. Hi Yong,

    Hahaha … I’m not an specialist nor … is only my own experience har … but me n family have been use for months …

    I use my common sense for all type of fruits benefits and look for what have in my fridge, I have many bottles “beauty enzyme” with different fruits + rice combination like papaya (it can soften our old skin cell 软化旧角质), lemon or lemon skin (whitenning dark spot 美白), grape & tomato(age fighting 抗老化) … enjoy 🙂

  75. YONG …
    no need la … u just use the normal eco-enzyme will do … 1 part + 10 parts of water … wet ur cotton ball with the mixture … n just wipe ur face with it … u also can use the mixture to wash ur hair … wet ur hair n let it sit for 10 minutes or so … shampoo n rinse …

  76. Thomas,
    You make a good commentator. I learn a lot from you.
    I think taking our stand in what we believe to be correct is important so that we won’t waiver. Of course there is no absolute 100% solution in everything, I’m happy with 80% and above.

  77. What I feel about reading the article Joyful had shared with us is that Dr P. Agamuthu has his right to raise doubt and prove with his knowledge & scientific prove. But I don’t think some comments would put off most of the good things these had brought to us.

    As in the article “no one knows for sure if the flushing of garbage enzymes down the toilet, as advocated by its proponents, would not lead to ill effects in the long term.”, this statement is “a bit” ridiculous, but I am 100% sure we flushes Poo & Wee Wee down the toilet for the rest of our life would definitely wouldn’t bring any good.

    Anyway, our results shows & my collegues are encouraging me to do more for them. But now I’m running out of container, friends are helping to look for good container especially those left over industrial liquid cleaner container I found them durable, big and easy to maintain.

  78. Joyful,
    It is easy to comment on what other ppl have said, so don’t learn the “bad” habit from me.

    原子小金刚 is right Dr. P Agamuthu has his right to raise his doubt too but I do hope he can find his answer. Anyway, The Star shld have interviewed someone who has better knowledge in microorganism, then probably we could learn something from the article, what a waste. I hope other papers will do it the next round. I also wish those professors & scientists can be more open minded when it comes to microorganism related issues.
    P/s: I was told by my nephew that the 1st. thing he learned in the medic school is to discredit Chinese Med. No wonder most of the doctors are so closed-minded.

  79. mr enzymo … it is true that the modern medication consider all other form of medication as unorthodox … or they call it alternate medication … only western medication is traditional …
    how do we define tradition ??? chinese medication has a 5,000 year history as compared to a few hundred years of western medication … so by years … chinese medication shld be regarded as traditional medication ah ???
    if chinese medication dun work … the chinese wld have been wiped off from the surface of the earth … like dinossaurs …
    so don be so easily influenced by media … advertisement … don 4get we, human being, has brain la …

  80. 嗯, 我觉得用在身上的温和点比较好吧(所以才用剩饭中和果酸), 太”杂不朗”会弄巧反拙引起皮肤敏感吗? 而且有些人做垃圾酵素时没有先清洗果皮菜根也有些长出虫子的, 用在身上会不会变成一身垃圾味 …
    sorry 啊, 凡夫俗子 🙂

  81. Hi Cynthia, 我觉得要看自己用的“垃圾”是什么定义, 如果是所谓的”杂不朗”我觉得用在抹地窗等外用会比较好, 如果是指用的是一些干净的果皮,到可以用在冲洗用途,那如果发现有皮肤敏感就要马上用清水洗净然后停止用它。到目前为止还没有人反映有皮肤问题,我个人反而用在洗地,过后我的脚的感觉很舒服,滑滑非常干净的感觉。

    凡夫俗子,What I believe about Western Scientific practice is to have physical proof, can be seen, thats why till now they are still stuck at the level of physical level. Whereas Eastern practise goes much indepth to energy level which cannot be proof by any physical mean, e.g Acupunture, energy healing (Qi Gong), & other so called alternate healing like Cosmic healing (Reiki), etc. Western Medic believe in killing the bacteria, whereas Eastern Medic believe changing the environment(our body) condition to enhance healing. I hd childhood Ashma & was treated with Chinese Medicine, I hd to practise eating habit, lots of food hd to let go & I hd never use any inhaler in my life, considering I’ve never hd any attack and is considered cured. I hd friend with ashma & was told they don’t need any food control & now still dependant on inhaler.

    Western Medic believe in changing the car tyres everytime it has flat tyre, but Eastern Medic check the overall car condition to find the cause of frequent flat tyres.

  82. aha … cynthia …
    some of us r misled by the name garbage enzyme … i prefer to use eco-enzyme … cos i feel the word garbage sounds very unfair to the poor fella …
    oso becos of the word “garbage” … ppl tend to literally throw all sort of garbage into making the eco-enzyme …
    for eco-enzyme … we shld always try to use fresh fruit / vege peel … not those rotten ones la …
    and rinse them in clean water …
    hygiene is still important … though it is not for consumption … but still we use it for our daily household cleaning …
    eco enzyme shld not in anyway smell “garbage” … hahaha … it shld give out fruity n sweet aroma instead …

  83. Ary Liew
    u bathe ur pets as usual … shampoo n rinse …
    then u mix the eco-enzyme with water … in a ratio of 1 part of eco-enzyme with 10 parts of water … spray it on ur pets … wet the fur thoroughly … n just leave it to dry … no more rinsing with water …
    this is how i bathe my doggie …
    cheers …

  84. Don’t worry la Thomas, I mean I learn those view points that are so common sensical. A lot of times, I may be thinking too technical and forget about the common sense.

  85. 原子小金刚,

    I hope he will soon publish his findings in favour of eco-enzymes.

    If you can visit a nearby kidney dialysis centre, ask for the 10L palstic container which carries the solution (not sure about its name) they use a lot in the dialysis process.
    The container is very clean, durable, space saving and it allows shaking if the lid is screwed tight. One more plus point, it pours easily too. I would leave the reisdue inside and start a new batch.

  86. ya … 原子小金刚
    if one understand chinese culture … it is not surprising why the treatment of the same illness r so different btw the east and west …
    cos of the influence of buddhism … taoism … n confucianism … chinese believe in jie 解 as opposed to the western sha 刹 … hahaha … chinese always believe in he wei gui 和为贵 …
    like wat mr enzymo got to say … the up n down in pharmaceutical industry can have an serious impact on the country’s (esp usa) economy … they can patent / copy right the pills but they cant do it to vege / fruits … u see the difference ????

  87. Hi Yong,

    I recommend only what has effective on myself and I always go for the best or at least the better one, especially the mixture fruits with cooked rice, you may want to google the Japan famous skincare, you can find out that the m/wter is from the discovery of sake brewery during the sake fermentation process (sake=JAPAN RICE WINE), have you see the links …

    Just my personal view … of course, you can always try the others … enjoy 🙂

  88. YONG …
    as cynthia said … so long u feel comfortable … it does not hurt trying out …
    my family members have been using the mixture … our hairs nvr drop … faces r pretty smooth n shinning … lol …
    b open-minded … comfort of mind is important … u decide …
    cheers …

  89. 凡夫俗子
    hi , my friend told me she used the eco-enzyme to mop her floor, but still can see the ants ,cockroch ? why she just try it for two weeks only….

  90. hi yong … eco enzyme does not kill ants .. cockroches … it expels though …
    don listen to those exagerated miracle talk … u must allow these small insects time to migrate huh ??? lol …

  91. Yup, 凡夫俗子 is right. When I first used it to mop the floor, all the ants were running for their lives. They ran up to my kitchen bench, crawled up the wall, even to the ceiling.

    Then, when I started to wipe the bench and tiled walls with diluted eco-enzymes, they were gone for good. Same for cockroches.

    I am contemplating to try it on those stray cats in my garden. They are multiplying too fast.

  92. Hi Yong, my eco-enzyme can see result in 2 days, few things we need to take note, though eco-enzyme is a good natural insect repellent, we still have to deligently clean off food debris to stop the “fatal attraction”, got food, then got ant, then got cockroch, then got lizards, its a food cycle.

  93. Hi Joyful,

    环保酵素好像只可以驱昆虫蚁类。。。我每次用洗过果菜的环保酵素水加在鱼池内,发现鱼池的水清了,鱼很健康大得更快,你要用来喂/赶野猫。。。等一下它们喝了酵素保健了,长更快生更多啊。。。 哈哈哈。。。

  94. 鱼池的水是清澈了很多,这个我试过。我是养 Guppy, 如果你是养金龙鱼, 那要看着办吧,我不负责喔!

  95. hi joyful …
    not sure if it really works on stray cats … but my niece did try … n she told me it works … hahaha
    she told me there is a stray cat that always get into her garden … digging up soil in her flower pots to boo-boo … but since she put the enzyme fruit residue in the pots .. the cat nvr come …
    hahaha … may b u can give it a try … n see if it really works … keep us posted of your findings …

    but on the other hands … i feed my dog with the enzyme residuals … they are really in good shapes … like cynthia said … the stray cat may grow healthier … hence giving u more kittens … hahahaha …

  96. 我通常会用黄糖+白糖做垃圾酵素,因为黄糖比较贵,1kg黄糖=2kg白糖的钱。这样的酵素也没酱黑。。。haha…

  97. hi leng leng ..
    i use only white sugar … as u said brown sugar is much expensive … so .. y waste $$$ ?
    i too like the color of the eco enzyme using white instead of brow sugar …

  98. hi凡夫俗子…你很hot哦,到处都能看到你。。。你和版主是好朋友吧???
    对阿,能省就该省对不???haha….

  99. hi leng leng …
    mr enzymo is only my cyber mate … nvr met him b4 … mayb it is bcos we are “chou wei xiang tou” … like the “chou qi” from the fermenting fruits … hahaha …

  100. Hi Yong,

    我没用过果汁的渣 ,造理应该是可以。如果是做美容酵素的话,可能果渣量要多一些因为水果内的酵素已随果汁流失一部分了。

    这个“黄糖或白糖”做垃圾酵素是个疑问,我看过一篇文章:白糖属于精糖会杀死酵母影响发酵。

  101. hi cynthia …
    may b u need to educate me on this issue …
    i m always under the impression that whie suga白糖 is just refined cane sugar … with minimal nutrient if any left after all the purification and refinery processes …
    whereas 精糖 is a chemically assembled very sweet substance as substitute for sugar, called saccharine …
    cheers ….

  102. Oush 凡夫俗子,

    我应该写” 白糖是精心制造的糖,已经经过漂白处理的精糖”, “精糖”不是”糖精”.

    我也只是看过这篇文章而已, 所以有所疑问, 我不会这些化学原理但宁可信其有, 要不然发起人刚开始也不会特别注明要用黑/黄糖, 不过若您用了白糖也发得好好地您可继续用啦 🙂

  103. 除了一般纯正的“有机黄糖”(organic raw sugar), 一般市面卖的黄糖soft brown sugar 也只不过是把精制白糖包上一层molasses罢了。这样的话精白糖和黄糖的差别只在于molasses 所含矿物质和营养罢了,不过黑糖倒是很raw,含很多杂物。至于做环保酵素需不需要用到含有矿物质和营养的黑/黄糖,答案是见仁见智的。
    Wiki: Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. It is either an unrefined or partially refined soft sugar consisting of sugar crystals with some residual molasses content or produced by the addition of molasses to refined white sugar.
    Brown sugar contains from 3.5% molasses (light brown sugar) to 6.5% molasses (dark brown sugar). The product is naturally moist from the hygroscopic nature of the molasses and is often labelled as “soft.” The product may undergo processing to give a product that flows better for industrial handling. The addition of dyes and/or other chemicals may be permitted in some areas or for industrial products.

    Moore: “To produce brown sugar, the crystals are left much smaller than for white sugar, and the syrup or molasses is not washed off completely. The flavor of cane sugar molasses is pleasing to humans. Many producers have in fact instituted processes where brown sugars are produced by ‘blending’. This is a process where sugar is refined to the white sugar crystal, then mixed with molasses to prepare brown sugar. The reason for doing this is mainly for inventory control and convenience, rather than to ‘trick’ the customer. The sugar is not technically any different, whichever way it is prepared.”

  104. 谢谢enzymo 君您的资料.

    我有一桶用白糖做的环保酵素, 它的发酵程度比我用黑糖做的慢且温和, 桶面的白菌很少, 我还没收成这桶白糖环保酵素不知道它的效果有没有差别. 也许应该解释为白糖的矿物质和营养比较少比较难培养酵母菌而影响发酵, 不是不可以用白糖但有影响 … ?

  105. I am afraid not, but with some black spot, just like 发霉.

    And I have another container, which seem like not 发酵 at all and some more I can see some worm inside…. what should I do ?

  106. hi lim …
    u may scoop out the black spots … add in some more sugar … n give it a good stir …

    the presence of worm may b due to flies laying eggs inside the container … did u close ur lid tight ??? did u wash ur fruit peels … though we may call it garbage enzyme … but don take it literally … we still need to adhere to basic hygiene la …

    if u don mind the worm … hahaha … it is ok … just add some more sugar n give it a good stir … worms are part of organic stuff …

  107. 想自制環保酵素已經很久了, 但有一個疑問纏繞著我. 環保酵素有用到白糖, 那當我們用來摸地板時會否惹來更多螞蟻呢?! 不好意思, 我的問題有少少白癡…. 謝謝解答!!

  108. Emilia,
    每个人刚开始自制环保酵素时都难免会有些疑问, 那怎能算是白痴呢? 开始几天可能會惹來少许蚂蚁.但是当糖被育菌消化掉之后, 就不会有蚂蚁了. 你大可放心去做吧.

    参考参考一下旧的见证吧.

  109. 嗨 emilia
    你不用担心啦,经过三个月的发酵,糖已经给益菌消化的七七八八了,变成了很酸的液体,蚂蚁不喜欢。
    我试过好几回,特意不要洗装过酵素的杯子,把它放在洗碗盆里,一整天都不见有蚂蚁喔。
    再说用来抹地,是用一小盖的环保酵素加了半桶水,那会引来蚂蚁呢???

  110. 凡夫俗子,
    哈哈!! 那我的擔心真是多余!! lol!!!! 我家有很多螞蟻, 所以希望制造一些防螞蟻的抹地板水. 嘻嘻!!

  111. I just harvested the eco-enzyme I made 3 mths ago using pineapple, lime, limau kasturi peels and wild mint leaves (the big thick leave type) with white sugar.

    I recalled asking Q about it becoming slimy and suspected white sugar being the culprit.
    White sugar is proven innocent (I would make this as my only exception of its usage, haha).

    It is my best harvest thus far in terms of smell and color. Effectiveness is of no difference.

    I will definitely repeat this combination of peels.

  112. i would like to made some cucumber eco-enzyme as my toner, any one try this before?! can eco-enzyme apply on face like toner we use normally?! thanks for reply!! 🙂

  113. Hi Emilia,

    I have made cucumber + alor vera + rice eco-enzyme, I call it “Beauty Enzyme” myself 🙂 I use it as my diary toner and add in my shampoo / body shampoo, believe me the effect is better more more than my $100+ toner, now this BE has become my most sellable production liao, hahaha…

  114. hi emilia …
    some of my girl friends use cucumber + lemon peel + rice water (洗米水) to diy eco-enzyme as face wash / toner … was told it is pretty effective
    u may try … n keep me posted …

  115. Cythia & 凡夫俗子,
    It’s sound great!!! then i must start my cucumber eco-enzyme asap liao!!! Thanks guys!!

  116. Hi Cynthia,
    U using cucumber + alor vera + rice eco-enzyme, it is work?
    What is the color & what smell it’s? when apply that time u fill stick or not? can u teach me to do ???
    Thanks!

  117. HELP!!!
    Last week i read wrong information, i using pineapple, apple, orange, pear to make enzyme, but the ratio is 6-water, 1-sugar, 3-fruits skins, it’s correct??? i read a lot of comment, i think my 1 the ratio wrong already… so can i add more water again? after few day i saw on top the fruits got some white thing + got a bit 发霉 it’s correct??? but already take out the 发霉 thing, somebody help me, which is the correct way…
    Thanks

  118. 好奇者
    it is 10 parts of water, 1 part of sugar and 3 parts of fruit peel …
    u may add in another 4 parts of water … n give it a good stir … fermentation period starts from ur last batch of addition …
    the floating white stuff is white mold … it is ok so long it is white … if u see any black one … u may scoop it out … add in some sugar … n give it a good stir …
    if you don like to see the white mold too … u may sitr it regularly … it will go away in no time …
    cheers ….

  119. Hi 好奇者 ,

    Yes, I use cucumber + alor vera + rice & a bit lemon skin to do my own beauty enzyme, it works very well 🙂

    I’m using honey (oh oh somebody may say i ‘m very rich & wasted liao … 🙂 I’m using the normal one 1 kg cost me $16 from Jusco) for this so the color is very light brown & smell very good the cucumber smell is very freshy.

    I dilute the BE with filter / mineral water (1:500 or you can adjust the ratio) when apply, it won’t make me feel sticky but very smooth leh … hahaha.

    This is how I do my BE :
    + + fermented 3 months, ok to use. Enjoy 🙂 & don’t worry so much eco-enzyme is very easy to do one 🙂

  120. This is how I do my BE :
    1 liter filter water + 100g organic brown sugar or honey + 300g rice mix with fresh fruits fermented 3 months, ok to use. Enjoy 🙂 & don’t worry so much eco-enzyme is very easy to do one 🙂

  121. 我剛開始做我的第一瓶環保酵素, 大概已經有一個星期了, 我昨天試著打開來看看里面的情形, 菜渣沒問題但我嗅到有少少臭味. 是這樣的嗎?! 我做環保酵素的材料有香茅和香草葉. 不是應該要有香茅的香味嗎?! 🙂

  122. Emilia …
    如果你只采用青菜,没加任何水果的话,那你的环保酵素肯定只有草青,没有果香味了。
    你不妨加些橙,柠檬,黄梨或,西柚皮 。。。效果肯定会比较好很多 。。。

  123. hi Cynthia
    I so interested . You mean just add in be (1:500) direct use for washing the face only that all enough ? not nessarry to use cleansing foam first. Wah ! it is so good I can save a lot of money loh now, coz I spended almost rm 500 to buy the skin care product every time !!

  124. ha ha , just want to shared my experience. I found that I can go toilet easily after every time I take my lemon enzyme. some more I heard from my friend , my neighbour have loose her weight and skin become more smooth!!

  125. Hi Yoong,

    I dilute the BE with filter / mineral water (1:500 or you can adjust the ratio) and spray directly to my face as toner after I wash my face with cleanser, or add into my shampoo / bath shampoo (1:1 or you can adjust the ratio) and use it directly. 🙂

  126. 各位大师,我有个环保酵素用法的问题。如果用环保酵素洗衣(用洗衣机洗的),是在用肥皂洗时放酵素吗?还是过水时放?拜谢各位大师。

  127. 一卷厕纸,

    我不是什么大师,但我是把环保酵素加入洗衣济里一起. 我也把洗衣济的普通分量减半.

  128. 我向来比较懒 。。。 我是和洗衣粉一起放 。。。
    也有朋友是过水时才放 。。。 不过我相信差异不大吧 。。。

  129. 对,用环保酵素洗衣时洗衣剂的分量可以减半,你会发觉泡沫少了尤其是用手洗,但衣服一样能洗得很干净,而且减少了过水次数,省时省水哦。但我发觉用环保酵素洗衣必须过点 softener 或要晒得够干,不然霉味很重。

    我那桶用白糖发酵的环保酵素已收成,试用了两天,清洁效果和黑糖的一样,而且味道比较轻淡,那些怕环保酵素的酸味的朋友可以试试用白糖做。

  130. Hi all,

    I’m new here. Wow, it took me so long to finish reading the posts 🙂 Very interesting indeed. I’m also currently doing this eco-enzyme cos i find it very useful in all aspects, from washing clothes to getting rid of insects.

    Thanks to 凡夫俗子 for meeting up last weekend! Appreciate it loads~ 🙂

    凡夫俗子: Yes, i do believe the same in ‘you yuan ren’ too. If they believe, we can share a lot with them. If they don’t, no point coercing them with our ideas.

    Cynthia: Ur BE is cool, is the rice cooked or uncooked? i shall give it a good try too! But i don’t hv aloe vera, may jz substitute with tomato probably 🙂

    Enzymo: was never sure we can use white sugar to make eco-enzyme cos i’ve seen people using it but a thick piece of white thingy will set on top of d surface. maybe i shd try nx time round.

    By the way, when should i stop stirring my eco-enzyme from d day i make it? 2 weeks? a month?

  131. hi sy …
    wat i know … some of my friends use 洗米水 for the “beauty enzyme” … and added either lemon peel (for whitening) … or cucumber (cooling) … hahaha … god know wat else …
    may be in this respect … cynthia will be in a better position to advise … 一笑 ….

  132. yaya.. actually i’ve heard bout ppl using 洗米水. some ferment it solely with sugar and use it for several purposes like eco-enzyme.

    but i’m jz wondering if use 洗米水, add in sugar and some other fruits/veges, what will d fragrant be? i’ve tried leaving 洗米水 overnight without anything n it smells one kind the nx day. haha…

    maybe someone who has done this could share more? i’m still a newbie. haha~

  133. Hi SY,

    I never use 洗米水 before, but i’ve tried leaving 洗米水 overnight without anything n it smells one kind the nx day too, rice also if we just add water & leaving it till next day the smells also horrible … 🙂 , thus I use cooked rice or porridge & fruits to do my BE, tomato also can but the smell a bit funny you can add some lemon skin to balance the fragrance. Enjoy 🙂
    (凡夫俗子, 我不是很利害只是比较爱美而已, 嘻嘻 🙂 )

    After I use the white sugar make EE, i would say the cleaning results is much much better especially when I use it for laundry. Ppl said first one month must stir the EE everyday, But I feel we must stir the EE every one or two days until we harvest it, this can prevent the little worm (蛆).

  134. SY,
    If you don’t like the white (yeast) floating on the surface of the mixture, you can just give it a stir. If you have time you can stir it everyday, talk to your eco-enzyme, show some love & care, the bacteria & yeast will appreciate and work harder. If you don’t have time, come back later when you are free. Eco-enzyme is easier than “maintaining” a girl/boyfriend, this…. I am pretty sure. 🙂

  135. hahaha … mr enzymo is quite right … the good and friendly baterias are quite easily contented … 知足常乐嘛 … definitely it is easier to keep them happy than human … (hahaha … i wont dare say “gal” … nanti kena hantam by all the gals here …)

    i usually give it a good stir every other day during the 1st mth of fermentation … after that i just leave it in peace to multiply … no disturb … lol ….

    so far all my eco-enzyme … no worm … no mold … but i get a jelly like thing floating on top of almost every batch of my eco enzyme … the jelly like thing look like a pinkish agar agar …. look something like the kumbocha (tea mushroom) ….

    so when i harvest my eco-enzyme … i will scoop out the jelly like thing into another container … add in sugar and water … it will become very fizzy 3 days later … i dilute it with water and water my plants … i think it containes a lot of good bateria / enzyme too … cos my plant / lawn are doing very well …

  136. Ya, I have a batch also got this jelly like thing about 1cm thick, my mam said want to keep it in the fridge for facial, but it looks so “gerlly” to me so I threw it away, aiya sayang… next time must follow your method for my plants also. Thx 🙂

  137. My goodness, for once I thought it was 凡夫俗子 talking about this — “talk to your eco-enzyme, show some love & care”…..

    Mr Enzymo, was that really you?? hahaha…

  138. 重读自己的问题也有点好笑,谁会用“肥皂”洗衣喔?哈哈……

    joyful, thanks for the tip. Ive been following enzymo’s blog so I know u, cynthia, 凡夫俗子 and ofcoz enzymo are the 大师 here.

    凡夫俗子, 看了您们的建议后,我也决定和洗衣粉一起放。像 joyful 所说的,洗衣粉可以少放些,少用化学物就是环保嘛。但如果洗衣粉和酵素分开放的话,那洗衣粉不就不能减半了?

    cynthia, 会有霉味咩?死咯,我自己是嗅不到啦,不知身边的人有没有察觉到咧。可是我用那个“将臭酥味连根拔起”的牌子的洗衣粉喔……好像很矛盾酱。

    anyway, 谢谢大家的指点。

  139. Thank you Cynthia for the tips 🙂 Will work something out for my BE real soon!! 🙂 Ah, so i need to use cooked rice yeah. what do u think if i jz add all kinds of fruits to 1 container? haha.. get every kind of enzyme in 1 (lazy ppl, hehe). lemon, rice, grapes, tomato, cucumber..?? haha… but jz fear that d smell will be weird right? =)
    Cynthia: EE done with white sugar is more effective in washing clothes?

    Enzymo & 凡夫俗子, yeah i do show love n care for my EE by seeing them every now n then if i’m at home. haha… for my 1st bottle of EE, as it was in a 5.5Litre mineral bottle, so i can’t stir much so what i did was just to shake it but i let it settle after the 1st month. The 2nd bigger container now is a 10L one. a ”big mouth” container, however, haha. i stir it everyday but still got white mold on top. 凡夫俗子, how come urs don’t hv mold at all? so keng one~ 🙂

    Regarding the jelly-like thingy when we use white sugar, what else can we do with that? can i jz blend it or add some sugar for it to dissolve and pour into my toilet? cos i don’t hv plants ^_^ will it dissolve after adding some sugar & water?

  140. 哈哈 。。。 joyful 。。。
    dont u still remember that u looked more radiant n charming … when ur buddy (then bf) 追你的时候 。。。 u know why ??? cos he always fed u with sweet words la, silly …
    same logic applies … the good bateria will also respond to our loving care …
    人同此心 。。。 心同此理嘛 。。。 一笑 。。。

  141. Hi SY,

    Of course you can use all kind of “fresh fruits” for BE (with or without cooked rice also can), you can adjust the smell by adding some lemon skin & the fragrance will be very nice. I was hint by a Japan skincare SKxxx the M/water so I try it myself by adding some cooked rice in my BE, and the result is really miracle, even my grandmam also ask for the BE from me, hahaha 🙂

    EE done with white sugar overale cleaning effect is better than b/sugar & especially in washing clothes.

    Maybe 凡夫俗子 is using the tight close container (like what we use for new year biscuits or candy container), less mold and less chances to have worm, but if you are using pail to make EE there will be a lot of white mold on surface, the white mold is very good to our skin, apply it will help to heal skin scare and you will feel your skin smoother 🙂

  142. 一卷厕纸,

    我看呢, joyful 就快要改名为”一份报纸”了… hahaha.
    Thanks for “reading” us.

    Life is great, live it to the fullest despite whatever circumstances.

  143. Q: “凡夫俗子, how come urs don’t hv mold at all?”

    Ans: because he talks, sings, praises, rocks, cuddles the E-enzyme until the mold decided to dive deep down… 霉沉大海

  144. sy …
    i really donno wat is this pinkish jelly like thing … just that it reminds me of the kumbocha jelly … have u heard abt kumbocha b4 ??? it is also called manchuria tea mushroom … another popular probiotic … u can google to access to some of the literature relating to this culture …
    though i know someone having this “tea mushroom” … i aint into it cos its kind of fermented tea … the procedure is rather simple … u just add sugar to any type of tea of ur choice + tea mushroom … n ferment it for 2-3 days … u will get some fizzy alocoholic sweetened tea ….
    since young … my parents nvr allow us to drink over nite tea / ice tea … the habit has been formed since young till today … i don take ice china tea at all … not even on hot days …
    back to my pinksih jelly thingy … i just added water n 1 kg of white sugar … n let it sit for abt 3 days … it becomes fizzy … we use it to wash front n back yard too … for flushing toilet … like the eco-enzyme … hahaha … not sure if it works as good as eco-enzyme … but the frangrance is pretty nice … hahaha … we nvr drink it … so i think for washing … shld be no problem la …
    btw … the jelly like things grow … may be it is becos they feed on sugar water … just like the kumbocha ….

  145. 凡夫俗子,
    It is call 红茶菇, which’s very popular when I was a small boy. It was my first encounter with this “alien” which turn out to be another type of probiotics.

    紅茶菇最早源起於中國東北,後來傳至蘇俄高加索地區,並首次被運用。紅茶菇並非菇類,只因是使用紅茶做培養基,在加入砂糖和培養菌之後其表面會形成一層膜,狀似菇,因此稱為『紅茶菇』。由於紅茶菇內含有醋酸菌和酵母菌,微量的醋酸及酒精可促進腸胃的蠕動,再加上活菌發酵的自然生成,這對人體健康的正面助益而言,是無庸置疑的。
    根據日本研究顯示,紅茶菇發酵後所製成的飲料,好處高達上百種。,一般認為,紅茶菇除了可延年益壽外,還具有防止老化、治療便秘、改善動脈硬化現象等功效,甚至還有人認為它具有預防癌症的效果。雖然至今未有正式的官方科學報告,醫學專家還是建議紅茶可以做為防癌及預防其他疾病的保健食品。

  146. hahaha … since joyful going to rename herself “一份报纸” … i think the most appropriate new name for enzymo is “一本字典” … me … “一个书呆” 非我莫属了 …
    听起来也蛮书香的喔 …. 书呆子看报纸,不明之处 。。。 查字典也 。。。
    anyway … thanks for ur infor …

  147. Hi! Interesting to read your blog. I also make garbage enzyme. I would like to check with you, when I add garbage enzyme (already ferment 3 months) with detergent to soap clothes. The water sometimes turn dark green and not light brown. It this normal. Thanks

  148. Wow Cynthia, i can’t wait to get my hands down to making the BE! 🙂 thanks for d recipe! yeah true, the rice could be one of the main essences 🙂 i think i’ll use cooked rice, m afraid uncooked rice will yield some kind of weird smell. hehe.. I went out just now to buy all d fruits but… forgot bout d sugar 😦 if u say u’re 90 yo, i think i’m 100 yo dy… somemore written in my shopping list! haha

    Joyful, you’re really joyful lah… haha so humorous.. yalo, maybe it’s because 凡夫俗子 talks, sings, praises, rocks, cuddles his EE that’s y no mould at all.. 😀 well yeah i think that’s d difference of using a big mouth container with lid with airtight container. the 5.5L mineral bottle EE of mine also no mould. but since Cynthia mentioned that it’s good then let it be. 😀

    凡夫俗子, no this is my first time hearing about kumbocha. by d way, is tea mushroom a kind of mushroom? can be found anywhere? a new word in my vocab today =) will read up about it, thanks. Okay, i think i’ll flush down d toilet if the jelly-like thingy appear when i use white sugar. no more containers for now, so will figure it out. hehe

    i’m kinda addicted to making EE already.. i think with Cynthia’s influence, BE will become another addiction too. 😀

  149. SY,
    Do I have a choice not to be joyful ?? To cheer myself up ma. People seems to indicate that I am less radiant n charming now wo…. mana dia punya head ?? mana saya punya hammer ??

  150. Eilyn,
    Good. It will also help you save some $ in the long run, furthermore it is environment friendly. Just treat your enzyme like your helper not superman.

  151. Hi Eilyn,

    Normally I soak my clothes overnight with detergent + 2~3 scoops of E-Enzyme & the cleaning effect is very good. There is one time my hubby shirt kenal some lubricate stain, I use some EE dilute with a little Dynamo & pour direct on the stain & let it sit for 1/2 hour, the stain was very easy to get rid. For clothes have long stubborn stain maybe you can try to soak with more scoops EE + detergent seperately or apply directly on the stain.

    Eheh, now I become “洗衣婆” liao 🙂 … why today everybody seen so high … 🙂

  152. Thanks Cynthia for the information, (终于找到天涯酵素友) It’s ok to ask you if I have any question about the usage?

  153. Hi Eilyn,

    Sure no problem as long as I know the solution… but don’t worry you may just post your questions here, here have a lot of 诸葛亮 🙂

  154. Hi, anyone heard / tried before this new method for eco enzyme :
    use only rice rinsing water (洗米水)+ sugar, keep for 10days

    I feel that it might not as “kuat” as the one we are doing.

  155. heard before bout 洗米水 eco-enzyme, but not too sure. saw it here
    http://www.chinapress.com.my/content_new.asp?dt=2009-02-20&sec=local&art=0220lg06.txt but no exact measurement given.

    Did my BE yesterday. 2 bottles i used cucumber+lemon+kiwi fruit+tomato+cooked brown rice (bubbles can be seen already today). The other bottle i used same fruits + raw big barley (bubbles can still hardly be seen today). Will wait patiently 3 months to harvest them 🙂

  156. Yong 曾发问可不可以用果汁的渣 make eco-enzyme ,我试过了是会发酵但酵素液很混浊, 现在我担心会太浓稠难收成。

  157. I make eco-enzyme, the f1st and 2nd bottle made on 30/6/09 still don’t have white mould , and the sugar water looks very 混浊, but the 3rd bottle make on 23/7/09 got white mould on top, do i ve to add in some more brown sugar in bottle 1 & 2 ?

  158. I don’t see anything wrong with yr eco-enzyme, the “混浊度” very much depends on the material that you have put in.
    If you are worrying about the white mold, then obviously you did not finish reading my post and the rest of the comments. 😦

  159. Hi, good day to every teacher,
    I’ve absorb so many knowledge from all of U.
    I’ve done the 洗米水酵素 and I have 4 btls of 5kg to go. Now I am abt to start doing EE from kulit limau kasturi. Hopefully it works.
    I never use the EE before, but from the 洗米水酵素 I did, is very useful for 去油 especially dish wash, toilet tiles. Can also use to mop the floor.
    U all may refer to the following blog for further infor. I learn a lot from emily’s blog on 洗米水酵素 and it only need abt 7-10 days to do it. Just use the 洗米水+黑糖.
    http://emilynpf.wordpress.com/2009/05/11/%e6%b4%97%e7%b1%b3%e6%b0%b4-%e6%a4%b0%e7%b3%96-%e6%b8%85%e6%b4%97%e7%94%a8%e9%80%94%e9%85%b5%e7%b4%a0/#comment-11

  160. Hi Enzymo,

    I am new here. Very impressed by everybody here. Thanks for enriching me with your knowledge and experience.

    Have you written books with all the essential points on different enzymes ? (I am not young gal, my eyes got very tired going thought the posts)

    I started making EE 1 week ago, but I could not help adding kitchen waste (without washing) every time I prepared my meal. So now I don’t know if the proportion is correct or not, do I need to add more sugar to be on the safe side ? I see mold on top.

    I am very eager to see the result of my first experiment.

    P.S. I wonder if you received my post just now, my internet got disconnected, so I am writing again. Please disregard this one if you have received the last one.

  161. hi jen …
    the ratio generally adopted is 1:3:10 for sugar / fruit+vege peel / water
    if u add in too much fruit + vege peel … u will get very cloudy + sluggish enzyme … difficult to strain …
    i prefer to adopt basic hygiene even doing EE so i always wash / rinse the fruit + vege peel to deter the breeding of worms / maggots …
    also i prefer fruit over vege peel cos the former will give a more fragrant enzyme … sweet smell of the fruits whereas the later will produce a rather greenish smell enzyme … but of course … i think the effect still the same …
    if u don like the white mold … give it a good stiff … the mold will go away …
    so long the mold is white in color … it is fine …
    if u find any black ones … u have to remove them … add in some sugar and give it a good stir …

  162. 凡夫俗子, thank you.

    I have been using the Korean sphere shape thing (I forgot the name) for washing my clothes in the washing machine. This thing guarantees 1,000 washes, but I still add a very small amount of washing detergent which is …. free, … free (I bought it in a health shop, I believe it is kind of enzyme). So far OK.

    I wonder if I can use only the Eco enzyme to replace the above things.

    What can I add to serve as conditioner to my clothes?

    If I use only pandan leaves and lemon grass as the garbage, will the Eco enzyme turn out to smell strong of these ?

    from
    “洗衣婆”

  163. Hi Jen,
    “If I use only pandan leaves and lemon grass as the garbage, will the Eco enzyme turn out to smell strong of these ?”
    I have try this formula, the result is very fragrant. I dilute with water and spray on my son’s skin as a natural insect repellent, it can against mosquitoes bite for hours 🙂

  164. hi, jen,

    I had made two bottles of eco enzyme, one smells like lime, the other one had an alcohol smell, is this (2nd bottle) alright?

  165. Thanks Cynthia.
    If I am successful, then I can tell my overseas visitors that mosquitos is no more a bother, I will supply them the insect repellent (there left only the greedy taxi drivers, but I have no car to drive them around, too bad).

    Can anyone please tell me where I can get free disposed/finished plastics for making EE ?

  166. Hi Jen,

    Try it then you know 🙂

    I bought the plastics pail (with cover) from the vegatables seller at wet market, which they use to keep for salt vegatables, it cost me RM4 each. They have two types, I can do 17 litre & 20 litre with the plastics pail, quite good.

  167. hi jun …
    alcohol always present in the course of fermenting sugar … so no need to be so concerned abt the alcohol smell … esp if it is not for consumption … the smell of alcohol will eventually evaporate after 3 months fermentation …

    jen …
    if u know anyone who does house painting … u can ask them for some paint plastic pails with lids … it is free … hardy … easy to handle …
    it is a good time to ask for some of these 30-gallon pails cos when come year end … lot of ppl giving their house a new face lift for the year end festivals …

  168. hi,

    Thomas, I had do my dragon fruit enzyme, (dragon fruit, lemon and 片糖), it turns out very nice, on the 14th day I found that a little bit of white mould on top, and my maid told me that the smell is good, I was too afraid that it might harmful to our health and had changed it to eco-enzyme. sad sad liao

  169. june,
    the white mold issue has been addressed so many times, just take a look at the discussion area, you will find the answer.

  170. hi june …
    like wat thomas has said the white mold issue has been raised n times liao … but to browse thru the old posting is a hazard by itself …
    white mold is ok … cos it is basically yeast formation … rich in vitamin b group … if u are a little observant … u can always find the white powdery things on pu er tea … black fungus … even dried fruits …
    but if u find black / green blueish mold … then u may discard the enzyme if u r real kia-si … lol … or u may remove the fruit pieces containing such mold and add in some sugar to rectify the growth …
    but of course if the whole top layer is already covered with such mold … wld suggest to change to eco-enzyme la …

  171. Hi Enzymo, Joyful, 凡夫俗子, Cynthia, ……… ,

    My ECO enzyme so far so good; smell acceptable, lovely pink color water.

    The other enzymes are doing fine as well; if I have leftover ingredients, I just put them in a new jar, there became a new enzyme.
    But I still need to learn which is cooling and which is heaty.

    I am so happy that I have learned a lot from this blog and opened up a new area for me, of course thanks to Enzymo, and all of your exchange of ideas.

    Can anybody tell me where I can buy the new book, I checked different stores, there was no stock. I have none myself and I have also promised to buy for my friends.

    Wish you good harvest, and selamat hari raya ! Have a great long weekend !

  172. hi jen ….
    as a rule of thumb …
    chinese herbalist always consider fruit / vege that are green or white belong to cooling type …
    whereas red and black vege / fruit are more heaty …
    yellow is neutral …
    this is only a general guide line for reference …

  173. Dear all,

    Good news :

    I called up Popular in 1 Utama yesterday and reserved the new book, and I went there this afternoon to make sure they would really follow up.
    A staff checked for me and finally told me new books would arrive after raya !

    So, get ready next week !

  174. Hi, I am mixing some water to EE (very first one which was made by my child in June) and use it as spray. I spray it everywhere incl kitchen and flower pots hoping that it can repel the ants. However, I still see ants.
    1) Does EE definitely can act as an ant repellant?

    2) can mis-concoction (ie ratio of fruits/water/sugar) be the cause?

    3) To be precise, what is the ratio of EE and water to act as a repellant?
    Thanks.

  175. 我是用黄糖制造酵素。这一次很成功,非常清香,是用黄梨和酸甘。以前有虫,看了好恶心。I also want to know what is the ratio to act as repellant? There are so many ants around my plants and orchids.HELP!

  176. Tourist,
    Follow these theory : 螞蟻怕酸,蚊子怕辣,蟑螂怕香; I keep all my enzyme during fermentation in a small room, I also store all my sugar supply in that same room, so far no ants; i guess the fermentation smell will keep ants away. I suggest you ferment your eco-enzyme until it turn sour, the success rate of repelling ants shld be higher. Play around with the ingredients to get the type of repellant that you desire for. That’s the fun of DIY, rite?

  177. hi toursit …
    i do agree that ants don like things that are sour ….
    i learnt that while i was working in the farm during uni break in aus … the farmers told me to test the purity of the honey is to see if it attracts ants … pure honey … though sweet … it has an after taste sourness … which ants don like ….
    likewise … enzymes don attract ants too … u can experiment it by dripping some enzyme on ur table top … no ants will come …
    so nextime if u find ur honey attact ants … there goes to show it has been mixed with sugar … dispite wat the label says … PURE honey … hahaha …

  178. 我发现一大块像jelly的东西,白色的,在我妈妈刚做好的酵素里,请问是酵母吗?应该要如何处理它?

  179. oh. I see. Can I put it in the new badge of garbage enzyme? do you think it will increase the rate of fermentation?

  180. hi szeyun …
    i think u can … i did that sometimes too …
    afterall it is yeast formation … similar to scoby …

  181. 上个星期朋友给了瓶酵素我,在网上看了下做法还是不明白。。。
    有点不懂,大多数人说用果皮(苹果,橙,李,龙朱果),那么其他水果皮有那些?香蕉,红毛丹,瓜类和豆类可以吗?
    果子的肉可一起放吗?
    我家种了很多金桔和 LIMAU KASTURI,香蕉和芒果。。。 需要取出果肉或种子吗?
    是不是坏了和发霉的水果不能做拉圾酵素?

    谢了。。。

  182. hi … anne_anna
    如果你的蔬果是有机的 。。。 你是可以连皮一起下 。。。
    如果你是属于敢死队 。。。不介意农药的话 。。。 把蔬果洗干净 。。。 你也可以连皮一起下的 。。。
    以上我讲的是拿来喝的酵素 。。。

    环保酵素只需要拿果皮,菜头菜尾就可以 。。。 拿果肉来作垃圾酵素太浪费了吧???

  183. anne_anna
    既然是你家自己种的 。。。 应该没打农药吧 ???
    那你不用去皮啦 。。。 连皮肉一起下吧 。。。
    不过如果你是作单样桔子的话 。。。 会比较苦涩喔 。。。
    建议你用一份桔子,两分量的芒果作酵素 。。。 口感应该会比较好咯 。。。

  184. hi , i just passed by this website. About the white sugar for making enzyme , isn’t it bad for the environment as white sugar is bleached?

  185. Hi Thomas

    环保酵素我用黄糖。。颜色一开始就是黑的。。那要怎么样知道他可不可以用呢?

    我新年后弄了一桶, 用白糖和黄梨皮。 现在环保酵素上方浮有很厚一层的白色东西。 摇晃桶后还是不会消失。味道是冲鼻的酸味, ok的吗?

    我看了你的照片。。 我发白的几乎是粘稠得形成jelly 版的形状。 很担心因为失败了一次

  186. 如果你不喜欢白霉或jelly,你可以用手。。。对。。用手。。搅拌,不然就不管它。冲鼻的酸味是对的。
    我有一桶,原本糖不够,坏了味道很臭,本来是用来驱野狗的,不过过了大半年,味道变清香了, 很神奇。

  187. 谢谢。。我是用了手去想把那厚厚的jelly弄散。。 搅拌。。不过弄不掉反而搞得。。双手都是臭酸味 >.<!!

    我后来在加糖。。想说跟弄喝的道理应该一样。。现在剩下就只有上帝保佑咯。。

  188. 请问,是否有人做过试验或study垃圾酵素可以、有效的防止或杀灭AH1N1细菌?现在AH1N1很猖狂, 垃圾酵素可有帮助?

  189. Lim,
    A-H1N1 是一种病毒, 不是细菌.
    病毒和细菌, 是大自然界的一部分,永远消灭不完的,只要在一个平衡的情况下, 是不碍事的, 引起病毒肆虐的是人类自己。
    当人类继续耗损大自然, 总有一天,大自然也会将人类逼到绝境。

  190. 我有一瓶环保酵素用了几个月,不知为何现在上面有一层白色东西。 请问是不是坏了?还可以用吗?

  191. hi, everyone :

    我也是时常在做环保酵素。但是我的每次都会有那厚厚的jelly(太约5cm)。我会用来当成肥料。可以吗?

  192. Hi, interesting to read through all the postings here. I just started (first trial) my eco-enzyme one week ago with four bottles (dont put all eggs in one busket :p ). 2 bottles got white layers floating which i think is ok. But the other 2 bottles got no “reaction”. Should i add in some more sugar or …?
    And the white jelly can take out now to 成肥料 or remain ?

  193. ah jacq,
    u need to watch out for the sugar ratio, if not the fruits will rot.
    u can take out the white jelly if u want.

  194. Hi Thomas,
    Catch no ball. means i need to top up sugar on those bottles without white layer?
    Any website could find more sample photos for these goods in progress?

  195. 昨天把大家分享的从头到尾看了一次,把要点都做了笔记,就差找个合适的塑胶桶。今天正好我的banana enzyme 可以收成了,想起Thomas 提到的simple theory : 蚂蚁怕酸,蚊子怕辣,蟑螂怕香,於是就滴了两滴enzyme syrup 在厨房的桌子上,过了一个多小时,一只蚂蚁都没有来光顾,马上把这个试验结果告诉了担心酵素里面糖分太高又想试的朋友

  196. 之前有亲友告诉我,她放水去泡果皮3个月就OK了,完全没放糖,我也用这样的方法做了好几瓶(今年和去年都做过)。我做的完全没酵母菌(白色物质)也不会很刺鼻,带点黄色、很清澈。那么这些其实根本是不成功的“酵素”是吧?但我还是用来抹地,哈哈哈!

  197. Summer,
    我没有办法不服了你和亲友,没有控制的发酵法,我不敢试,就算用来抹地我也不敢。

  198. 請問一下 我用白糖制酵素 頭三天有氣體 需要放氣 第4天開始沒有氣體
    第5天果皮沉淀了很多(還是沒有氣體 泡泡都沒有)
    請問這樣 算不算是失敗了??
