What you’ll need :
BUBBLEBAGDUDE bag kit including pressing the screen
1- gallon or 5-gallon bucket, 20-gallon or 32-gallon garbage can
Coldwater and ice
* Mixing options: a spoon hand mixer or BUBBLEBAGDUDE bubble machine with BUBBLEBAGDUDE bags
If you are using an electric mixing device, we recommend mixing in a separate bucket before pouring the mixture into your BUBBLEBAGDUDE bags. Please refer to the bag care instructions at the back.
The Worlds’ Famous BUBBLEBAGDUDE SYSTEM offers 8 layers of industrial-grade filtration, which allow you to extract the essential oils from almost any plant.
Line the bucket with your BUBBLEBAGDUDE bags starting with 25-micron bag and ending with a 220-Micron bag. (Start with smaller micron which is 25-micron and so on)
OPTION 1 (Mixing by hand)
2.1 Fill the bucket with enough cold water to cover the bottom of the BUBBLEBAGDUDE bags (about halfway full)
2.2 Add your dry or frozen plant trimmings.
2.3 Add enough ice to almost fill your bucket to the top
2.4 Stir your mix for 15 to 20 minutes, adding ice if necessary to keep the water cold. (50/50 mix of ice and water is ideal)
OPTION 2 (Mixing with BUBBLEBAGDUDE Bubble Machine)
* These instructions are for the 5-gallon machine
2.1 Place plant material in the BUBBLEBAGDUDE 5 Gallon Zipper Bag (Washbag). Add enough ice to fill the bag then place the (washbag) into your BUBBLEBAGDUDE bubble machine.
2.2 Fill your BUBBLEBAGDUDE bubble machine with 30% cold water and 70% ice. (Don't put too much ice where the machine can’t spin because it could overheat it. If it does, unplug it and let it cool down for a day and it’s ready to use again)
2.3 Plug and turn on your BUBBLEBAGDUDE bubble machine. You can adjust the time to your desired setting. (We recommend 5-15 minutes maximum)
2.4 When the BUBBLEBAGDUDE bubble machine has finished mixing, there is no need for settling to occur. Using the drain hose, drain the water into your BUBBLEBAGDUDE bags which you prepare in step #1
2.5 Gently squeeze any remaining water out of the BUBBLEBAGDUDE Bubble Machine. Rinse down the inside of the bag to make sure no plant extracts are stuck to the inside. Drain the rinse water into your BUBBLEBAGDUDE bags.
PULLING THE BAGS
3.1 Now you're ready to begin collecting your herbal extract. pull out 220 Micron bags and allow the water to drain into the remaining balance. Discard the content of this bag as the 220 Micron bag is used only to catch contaminants.
3.2 Text remaining bags contain various grades of extract. Pull out each bag one by one, draining them back into the bucket.
3.3 As you pull each bag, turn it inside out and stretch it over a bowl. Scrape your herbal extracts off with a spoon or plastic card.
3.4 Place your extract onto a pressing screen. Fold a clean, dry towel in half with the screen in the middle. Gently press out the moisture.
BUBBLEBAGDUDE CARE AND CLEANING
Always rinse the bags thoroughly with cold water immediately after use. Do not use warm or hot water, as this will clog the screens. (For the Bubble Machine, use the same method)
Repeat as necessary.
Hang the bags and always allow them to air-dry completely before storing them to prevent mold or rot issues.
* Never use detergent or any solvents.
* If your screens become clogged you can use 99% isopropyl alcohol on a soft toothbrush to gently remove tough stains. Keep alcohol away from the edge of the screen. (Stichting)
