Ok. I've had this in my mind for a long, long time a just thought to ask it (as I was reminded of it from another thread).<br><br><br><br>
What is the best way to remove the crap that is on produce from the grocery store? I purchased some green and red peppers the other day that had this wax on them. And then there's the pesticides. Double YUK!<br><br><br><br>
Since I've been eating like a ton more fruits and vegetables during the last 6 months this has become a greater concern for me.<br><br><br><br>
I have a small brush that I use and I basically just rinse while I scrub. I remember seeing produce wash introduced into the market back last summer but I've never tried it yet.

I think you can make a solution with baking soda. I am unsure of the dosage tho. And you soak the veggies in it.

You can use a spray bottle and fill it with apple cider vinegar. I use raw ACV (BRAGGS). Spray down whatever produce you're going to eat and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse and rub veggies well under water.<br>
I'm still alive so I guess it works for me.

^^^ Yup, make your own vinegar and water wash and it is not only cheaper but more effective than commercial brands, or even a brush.<br><br>
Here's an interesting article on the subject from NPR:<br><br><a href="http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=14540742" target="_blank">http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=14540742</a>

I typically just use vinegar and then rinse it thoroughly. Another thing that I used to use was unscented Dr.Bronner's castile soap...sparingly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
