Cleaning with EM-Activated
EM-Activated is a very acidic solution that re-populates surfaces with beneficial microbes. The presence of these microbes discourages mould, fungus and harmful bacteria from taking root.
EM helps to eliminate odours from pets, cigarette smoke, and odour-causing bacteria, as well.
A small squirt bottle filled with straight EM is handy to keep by the kitchen sink. EM can be used to add to water for washing vegetables, to pour down the sink to reduce odours, and to spray on sponges to keep it fresh and reduce harmful bacteria.
One tablespoon of EM-Activated can be added per load as the washing machine fills with water. This is recommended for light coloured laundry since the microbes love fabric dyes, and dark coloured articles have a tendency to fade. If using EM, reduce detergent to 1/3 the usual amount. If possible, let the clothes pre-soak for 10-15 minutes before running through the cycle.
Use 1 Tbsp of EM to about 5 litres of room temperature water for mopping ceramic tile or vinyl floors. No detergent is needed. For use on wood floors and furniture, dilute 3/4 tsp. to 5 litres water. Wipe dry immediately.
Add 1 tsp. EM-Activated to a litre of water, and spray or wipe on tile, porcelain, and Formica. Let is stand on wood or plastic cutting boards to discourage salmonella and other harmful bacteria. Then rinse. This dilution must be used within 3 days.
Diluted EM-Activated can be sprayed lightly in shoes to keep them smelling fresh and on shower curtains to discourage mould!!
Clean dustbins & 'wheelie bins' with this mixture to reduce odours.
Use a diluted solution and spray generously on light coloured automobile interior, door panels, light-coloured upholstery, and carpets to freshen and deodorize.
