Washing Fruit & Vegetables

I always wash all my fruit and vegetables even if it says on the label  it’s pre-washed, especially if I’m going to  eat them raw.
Most fruit and veg grow in fields covered in pesticides, and even if you buy only organic they have been handled by people in fields, warehouses and supermarkets.  And it’s not enough to wash them in water alone as most of the pesticides are designed to be water-resistant.

I get fruit and vegetable washes from the health food shop or I make my own.

Make your own home made fruit & vegetable wash

You need:
1 lemon
2 Tablespoons of Baking soda
2 Tablespoons of White Vinegar
2 teaspoons of Salt
A Spray Bottle

Mix it up, shake, spray, leave it for a couple of minutes, rub it in and wash off in water.
