We like all-natural – everything. I use a simple wash for our fruit and veggies. It is important to clean the dirt and bacteria when you bring produce home. The following recipe is for an All Natural Fruit & Veggie wash.
Homemade Fruit and Veggie Wash
1 cup Water
1 cup Vinegar
2 Tbsp Baking Soda
Juice of 1 Lemon (2-3 Tbsp)
Mix water and vinegar in a large bowl. Add baking soda. Baking soda will react with the vinegar creating lots of cleansing bubbles. Stir in lemon juice and add mixture to a spray bottle.
Rinse fruits or veggies with water and then spray well with your homemade wash. Allow the produce to sit for a few minutes and then rinse again with water. This amount will last 2-3 weeks, depending on how much produce used.
In a pinch and have no lemons? Simply spray produce with 1 part water and 1 part vinegar or use lemon juice from a jar.
