How to Clean Fruits and Vegetables
When thinking about how to clean fruits and vegetables, buying a bottle of cleaner that you see in the produce area of the grocery store may be an option. However, you can easily make your own mixture for a fraction of the cost.
You will need:
1 spray bottle (clean and never used with chemicals)
2 cups water
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp baking soda
Mix the ingredients in the spray bottle. The liquid will appear a bit foamy.
To clean fruits and vegetables, simply spray the liquid on the food. Let sit for 5 minutes. Rinse under cold, running water, using a soft scrub brush on the food if desired. And that’s how to clean fruits and vegetables.
