I have been washing my raw veggies in a sink full of water with 2 to 3 tablespoons of 5% food grade hydogen peroxide to rid them of any nasties for many years. I make the 5% solution from 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. I have been reading about the E. coli scare on raw packaged spinach and wondered about the effectiveness of my washing method. I also soak sprouting seeds with some 5% food grade hydrogen peroxide and mist the sprouts daily with a 5% solution. I was under the impression from all I have read about food grade hydrogen peroxide that this kills E. coli, etc. Does anyone else know about this? Thanks for any input/advice!

I use the stuff from the store (yes, it is okay to use for a rinse) and vinegar. Gets rid of nearly all of them. However, you must spray them separately... not combine in same bottle. (Won't have same effect.)<br><br><br><br>
Here's an artcle about a study that was done on the topic:<br><br><a href="http://www.sciencenews.org/pages/sn_arch/9_28_96/food.htm" target="_blank">http://www.sciencenews.org/pages/sn_...28_96/food.htm</a><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
