Wood vinegar is a naturally derived liquid.
High Acidity and High Organic Acid Content
The main component of wood vinegar is acetic acid.
In addition, there are hundreds of known types, and they have a variety of applications.
Wood vinegar is also widely used in private applications such as baths, horticulture and agriculture.
This is proof of the results that have been recognized with wood vinegar in the field of horticulture.
However, there are still many unclear points that will be issues in the future for concrete and objective demonstrations of the components of wood vinegar.
However, as the recognition of wood vinegar increases among consumers, it has come to be utilized in various fields and applications.
Why does wood vinegar need to be refined and distilled?
Wood vinegar itself is used in various places for the following applications.
However, crude wood vinegar can contain ingredients that have adverse effects (3-4 Benzopyrene, acetaldehyde, etc.) in addition to its useful compounds.
For these reasons, when using wood vinegar for applications related to people and plants, we recommend that you select a wood vinegar that has been made using purification/distillation methods.
As a standard, please use transparent wood vinegar instead of amber wood vinegar.
Applications and Uses of Wood Vinegar
Horticultural Wood Vinegar
Deodorizing Wood Vinegar
The unique musty (burning) scent of wood vinegar is particularly effective at suppressing odors of raw garbage (garbage, drains, etc.).
Applications that keep away dogs, cats, ants, slugs, and centipedes, etc.
The unique scent of wood vinegar is effective in keeping away small animals such as dogs and cats, and repelling ants and slugs, etc., which are common around homes.
Garbage Dumps, etc.
The following are possible reasons why spraying wood vinegar directly into a plastic bag keeps dogs and cats, etc., away.
- The strong smell of burning and acetic acid substances.
- The high acidity that animals recognize as “something that can’t be eaten.”
Because of the high acidity, wood vinegar never decays as impurities don’t mix with it.
