What is the Best Way to Store EM-1?Updated 6 months ago

To ensure the effectiveness and longevity of EM-1 (Effective Microorganisms), it should be stored properly following these guidelines:

Temperature Control: Store EM-1 in a cool and stable temperature environment. Ideally, the storage temperature should be between 10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F). Avoid exposing the product to extreme temperatures, either hot or cold.

Protection from Light: Keep EM-1 away from direct sunlight. Storing it in a dark place or in a container that blocks light helps in maintaining its viability.

Airtight Container: Ensure that EM-1 is stored in an airtight container. This prevents contamination and maintains the anaerobic condition that is beneficial for the microorganisms in EM-1.

Away from Strong Odors and Chemicals: Store EM-1 in a location away from strong odors and chemicals. Certain chemicals and odors can negatively affect the microbial balance in EM-1.

Avoid Freezing: Do not store EM-1 in a place where it could freeze. Freezing temperatures can harm the microorganisms, reducing the effectiveness of the product.

Shelf Life Consideration: Keep in mind the shelf life of the product. Even under ideal storage conditions, it’s important to use EM-1 within its recommended shelf life for best results.

Following these storage guidelines will help maintain the quality and effectiveness of EM-1. Remember, proper storage is key to ensuring that the beneficial microorganisms in EM-1 remain active and effective for use in your applications.
