Over the last four months I’ve been experimenting with Bokashi composting. A lot of claims have been made online about this anaerobic composting method. I’ll be making a whole page related to composting soon and will feature this.
One thing that I can confirm about the properties of the liquid that drains from the compost is that it is excellent for cleaning drains.
The claim I saw online was that the Effective Micro-organisms that do the work in the Bokashi composting method can colonize ones drains and help remove and prevent clogging.
We’ve had frequent trouble with this in the past, so I gave it a go.
Once a week, I drained off the liquid from the Bokashi bin and poured it down the most troublesome drains.
The verdict? It works! I have unclogged all of our drains using no other method beside using the Bokashi liquid. No manual removal of clogs, no other drain cleaners, just this wonderful liquid.
I’m a convert, even if it is just for this!
