Need a natural and simple pesticide wash for your fruits and veggies?
To make a simple wash, get a spray bottle — fill it half way with distilled white vinegar and the other half with water. Shake it up and spray your fruits and vegetables and rinse with warm water. For a more potent version, just add juice of 1 lemon and 1 tablespoon baking soda. Mix well!
This wash can be used as a spray and scrub and other times as a soak for produce like grapes, cherries and apples that have skin with vital nutrients and enzymes.
What are the top pesticide laden produce items around?
Berries; Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries
Sweet Bell Peppers
Just remember if you cannot buy Organic, regularly clean your fruits and veggies. I use the simple spray even on the Organic produce and the more advanced one if I purchase non-organic, which is uber rare, but it has happened like 1x a year.
Happy Produce Cleaning!
