DIY Fruit and Veggie Wash

What is on your fruit???


The fruits and vegetable that you get from your local grocery store look so nice, clean, perfect...
but that is only because they are sprayed pretty heavy with pesticides to keep the bugs from eating away at them...

So before you dig right in and take a bite of any fruit or veggie, you should wash those pesticides off. You can buy a veggie wash, but a simple and very effective wash is using white vinegar. 

So here is a quick soak recipe that I found to be very helpful...while looking at the pictures, look will not like what you see...these are after I soaked my lemons for 10 min.


The top one is a bit hard to see, but there are little particles floating around in there...


This view is better. All that floating in the water came OFF of the lemons after 10 minutes of soaking.


I wanted to give you a better visual with direct light on the water...see all that yuckiness!!??
I don't have a clue what that is, but that is nasty!! 

Now that I have your attention, do you want to know what the recipe is??

Fill a large bowl 1/2 to 2/3 full of warm water....
then add 1/3 cup while distilled vinegar.

Yup, that's's cheaper than buying the veggie wash from the store and just as effective!!

Happy Washing!!
