In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, shows how to wash produce in a quick and effective way using an eco-friendly, homemade produce wash. Produce has pesticides and other unfriendly grime, so this is how to wash produce properly and safely.
Thomas asked: Is there a cheaper way to clean my produce properly?
What you need-
1) Fruits and vegetables
2) 2 tablespoons of baking soda
3) 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
4) 1 cup of water
5) spray bottle
7) funnel (optional)
Shelf life: 2 weeks
In the spray bottle, pour the lemon juice, baking soda and water. Shake it up and set the spray bottle to mist. Put the fruits and vegetables into the strainer and douse using the spray bottle over a sink. Let the produce sit for a few minutes, then rinse with cold water. Allow the produce to air dry in the strainer and enjoy!
Did you know? Lemon juice acts as a natural disinfectant, while baking soda provides the fine grit needed to clean everything off the surface of your produce.
FYI: Thick-skinned fruit like an orange or banana don’t need to be washed since you don’t eat the skin. Thin skinned fruits and vegetables like an apple, grape or tomato should be washed before eating.
