In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have to worry about chemicals on our fruits and veggies.
Unfortunately, it is increasingly becoming likely that we know about fruits and vegetable pesticide wash.
We are still hoping that some chemical-free way to store produce fresh would be invented.
But this isn’t a perfect world, and so-called food-grade waxes and harsh pesticides coat the majority of produce widely bought in our shops and markets.
Unfortunately, a quick wash off in water won’t get rid of the waxy coating or the pesticides.
If the pesticides were water-soluble, farmers would have to put them after every single rain or dewy morning, which is both expensive and requires a big labor force.
Dish soap is one good way to get rid of the nasty stuff, but an even better more natural route-vinegar (It doesn’t make your fruit or vegetables taste like vinegar)
It might seem like a needless precaution, but washing fruits and veggies before eating can protect you from harmful bacteria and pesticide residue.
Fruits and some vegetables are often eaten raw, fresh-cut or slightly processed, which is often why there are concerns about their safety.
Most times, Fresh fruits and vegetables contain pesticide residues and toxic compounds produced by molds on the surface or even inside tissues of these foods.
The Product’s Ingredients
In order to prepare these fruits and vegetable wash, you will need a cup of water a half cup of white distilled vinegar and a decent-sized bowl.
Blend together the water and vinegar and submerge fruit or veggies. Swish and scrub for thirty seconds. Run under cool running water for another 15-30 seconds, and enjoy!
Your now not-waxy produce will have a healthy radiance (not an unnatural shine) and will give a whole new level of produce enjoyment.
Keep in mind this might reduce the shelf life of the product, so wash just before eating.
