Follow the directions below each time you use the Ultrazyme® Enzymatic Cleaner tablet with the Oxysept® System. Use only the Oxysept® Cup with the blue left lens basket for weekly enzymatic cleaning/disinfection and neutralization. Do not substitute any other lens case.
Enzymatic cleaners are popular because of their ability to break down soils, stains, and other debris with the use of natural enzymes. Typically, the enzymes used to create an enzymatic cleaner include species of the bacteria Bacillus. Out of this bacteria, proteases and amylases are used the most, though lipases have also been known to be incorporated into detergent formulations. Each of these enzymes function differently. Proteases combat protein-based stains, amylases work on and starches, and lipolases break down lipids or fats.
Thanks for experimenting with the cleaner! I’m a Pinterest junkie and want to believe in all the great DIY stuff people share, but have found some (like making a cotton ball holder from an old candle jar) are just more work than they’re worth. Besides, someone’s gotta keep the economy going by buying the enzymatic cleaner others produce!
