Hmmm, maybe I will add some more yeast then. I am soooo looking forward to hearing how it compares to bac out!

I don't think they ship to the US.Confused

Ok, so I tried it on my diaps, and it worked well on the stains, except the ones from blueberries, but I didn't squirt it directly onto the diapers...except an overnight one that was starting to smell kinda rank. It worked really well, and the funk is completely gone from that diaper. I've also been using it around the house, and I think it's working as well as the regular bac-out except it doesn't smell as delicious. I'll change that though when I order some oils.  I making another one right now with rice water, which is supposed to work really well on grease/fat/oil and I think I'm going to mix that and the lemon/lime one together for super cleaning ability once it's done. The jugs I made it in were three liters in size and it was enough to fill two bac-out bottles and then some.

 On 12/12 I started my batch with yeast (made with orange and lime sections). It no longer smells yeasty but smells STRONGLY of alcohol. Is it finished? Is that normal?
Oh, and the oranges and limes are still floating.

I think it's supposed to take 3 weeks with yeast, is that right?
I don't think yours is done until jan 2nd.

I started my fist batch on dec 14.
The one with pineapples/molasses looks really gross and smells about the same
The all lime/brown sugar one looks and smells nice and fruity. This one has loads of bubbles every time I opened it to stir it.
The mixed fruit pear/pineapple is kind of yucky too

I still have a while to wait, all my fruit is still floating. But so far I am thinking that citrus and brown sugar is the way to go.

How is this going? Are you guys liking the cleaning power of the cleaner? I've been saving my peels!

Me too. I've got some that will be ready at the end of the month. But it kind of smells sour and is brownish last time I checked so I'm wondering if I didn't do it right.

Just reviving this again to see if you guys are still liking it. Wondering how everyone dilutes it. I put a half cup in a big squirt bottle. I'm a little disappointed. Wondering if I should make it stronger. Also it smells kind of sour. Does everyone else's smell like that? I have been spraying it on morning diapers after I rinse them out a couple times and it seems to take the pee smell out.
