Fruit Peel Enzyme – turning rubbish into a money and environment saving resource

A few weeks ago at an Eco exhibition at PISA (Penang International Sports Arena) in Penang, we splashed out RM3 (USD$1; AUD$1; GBP£0.60) for a 500ml bottle of fruit peel enzyme.

This is basically fermented fruit and vegetable peels. And why would you want this? Well, it can be used to save a lot of money on detergents, can keep your home drains clear, and can fertilize your garden and kill pests. And it actually is good for the environment, as opposed to detergents, pesticides etc. which are obviously bad for the environment.

We bought from a stall run by  I think it was a Chinese Girls School. ( Kelab Pencinta Alam SJK (C) Perempuan China.) Their blog about their product. * They had produced it and were explaining all about it and selling it.

This is also know by the less elegant name of the Garbage Enzyme.  A search on the Internet will give a lot of hits on this, so I don’t need to write so much more, as they have already written it. One example:

From the above site: Garbage Enzyme can be used as an alternative to bleach and other cleaning compounds. It can effectively used as:
– as a household cleaning liquid
– to remove foul odors, molds and grime in the kitchen and toilet
– as an anti-bacterial and anti-viral agent
– to drive away insects
– to clean carpets and remove ticks
– for laundry washing and ironing
– for mopping floors
– for cleaning cars


  1. One very important tip that was left out here: During the 1st to 2nd months after making the fruit peel enzyme, always remember to open the cover of the plastic bucket with lid DAILY to let air out or else this might ‘explode’ once you remember to open it.
