Eco-Enzyme FAQs You Need To Know

1. How to use CitrusCLENZ Multi-Purpose Enzyme Cleanser?

Note: Do not use hot/warm water with enzyme cleaner for cleaning as enzyme is heat sensitive.

  • Mop kitchen floor – Pour 2-3 caps of enzyme cleaner into ½ big pail water. Rinse at least once.
  • Wash plates and utensils – Squeeze a little on sponge, rinse after 20 sec (Use the same method as your dish detergent)
  • Soak laundry – Pour a little (say 2-3 caps) enzyme cleaner in half pail of water to soak laundry overnight to remove smelly clothing
  • Wash laundry (use only for top load washing machine) – You can start with 2 to 3 caps of enzyme cleaner and adjust amount of enzyme cleaner according to your laundry load
  • Clean glass window/glass door/mirror – Dilute 10ml in 150ml water, spray on surface of the glass and wipe off with wet cloth and follow wet dry with a dry microfiber cloth
  • Clean cooking stove – pour in little enzyme cleaner on wet cloth and wipe the stove. Rinse once or twice
  • Clean bathroom wall and floor tiles, sink, toilet bow – use a little enzyme cleaner and mix a little baking soda, apply the mixture on the wall and floor tiles/ sink/ toilet bow, leave it for 10 mins then brush and rinse off

The above are some suggested usage of enzyme cleaner, you can explore more other household cleaning yourself.

2. Why CitrusCLENZ Enzyme Cleaner and/or Citrus Enzyme Pure?

You can save your time and effort and delicate your precious time to your work, just buy it in ready form for use whether with or without the soap base. Gentle on skin and the enzyme solution is naturally made for general cleaning.

Why enzyme?

  • Often safer for the environment and human health compared to other traditional chemical products
  • Micro-organisms (bacteria) can penetrate into very small cracks and crevices and eliminate soils and malodors that traditional chemicals often cannot remove
  • Non-pathogenic “good” bacteria can help to displace pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria
  • More economical as it is multi-purpose cleaner

3. How does bio enzyme clearner work?

Bio-enzymatic cleaners are cleaning products that use non-pathogenic, “good” bacteria to digest wastes, soils, stains and malodors. The bacteria do this by producing enzymes specifically designed to break down certain molecules (wastes/soils) into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces become “food” for the bacteria.

The bacteria consume these soils and break them down into two basic compounds: carbon dioxide and water. The bacteria grow in number and continue to consume the soils until their food supply diminishes (the soil is gone).

Why not traditional cleaners?

In my opinion, traditional cleaners are highly aggressive and toxic chemical. Not only endangers just the person doing the cleaning, it also the health of all household members.

Some products release dangerous chemicals, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Other harmful ingredients include ammonia and bleach.

How Volatile Organic Compounds (“VOC”) affect our waterway and marine life?

Nitrogen, phosphorus and ammonia are dangerous water contaminants in large quantities.

Most pollutants are removed from the water by the waste treatment facilities before the water is returned to the rivers, streams, lakes and other waterways.

However, those three household cleaning chemicals are not removed by waste treatment processes.

Instead, they enter the waterways and build up, causing an accelerated growth of some types of plant life.

Result is excessive nourishment of some types of plant life in habitats native to aquatic animals. Most pollutants are removed from the water by the waste treatment facilities before the water is returned to the rivers, streams, lakes and other waterways.

Dense vegetation that clogs waterways, crowding out animal life and other marine plants.

At the end of these plants’ chemical-accelerated life cycle, they die in large masses, decaying and depleting the oxygen in the water.

Algae then grows, and the animals – freshwater shellfish, fish and others – die off as well; the die-offs cause more decay. 

Who discover waste bio enzyme?

Dr. Rosukon Poompanvong, a Thai supporter of alternative medicine and founder of the Organic Agricultural Association of Thailand.
Research of organic agriculture, with particular emphasis on the use of fermented organic waste as fertilizers and pesticides for last 30 years.
Outstanding achievements in this field, in 2003 she was awarded a special recognition by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization).
