Homemade Fruit and Vegetable Rinse

Need a natural and simple pesticide wash for your fruits and veggies?  

IMG_1165

Strawberries are loaded with Vitamin C, Manganese, Fiber, Folate and Iodine. However, due to their skins, they retain pesticides (even organic can have residue) and need to be cleaned.

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?

Apples

Berries; Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries

Celery

Cherries

Collard Greens

Grapes

Kale

Lettuce

Potatoes

Spinach

Sweet Bell Peppers

Tomatoes

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!
