2The perfect home
When done correctly, bokashi bins are insect-free with a mild smell like apple cider vinegar. Bokashi can be used both indoors or outdoors.
While scraps ferment faster in higher temperatures, this may produce an unpleasant smell, so best keep your bin in a moderately cool spot. Don't be afaid to move it outdoors if the smell becomes unpleasant.
Did you know?
Bokashi (ぼかし) is Japanese for “morphed from its original state.” It is derived from a Japanese farming practice where farmers buried food waste under soil rich in micro-organisms so that it broke down much faster than usual (between 1-3 weeks). It took until the 1980s before people brought the practice inside with bokashi bins.
