The process itself wasn't really tough. You literally can toss in almost anything, although all of our scraps were vegan. Every few days you drain off this nutrient juice which really can be a little rank, if I'm honest! You can either dilute this with water and feed your plants at home or you can pour it straight down the sink. It's full of microbes which will keep the drains clean. Sometimes I pour it down the bathroom sink, and other times down the kitchen sink. As I am writing this, I just realized that it had been a while since we drained ours. We just drained off nearly an entire pitcher of it!
I also keep the chunks of food scraps cut to only 1" long each. Cutting these pieces smaller accelerates the process and allows you to fit more food into the bin. Once you've filled it up (it took us about a month or so), then you can turn it into potting soil. We bought a container to store the finished compost, poured two inches of soil on the bottom, dumped the contents of the Bokashi Bin in next, then covered it in 8 inches or so of more potting soil. After watching the video below, I realized that I should probably mixed it up, but it stunk so bad, I just couldn't do it. I dumped the soil on top and walked away to catch my breath. Hey, at least I composted to begin with!
