Make your own fruit and veggie wash!
It's good to wash store bought fruits and veggies with more than just water. Why? Because most store bought fruits and veggies are covered with bacteria, residue from pesticides, and a film that's all kinds of gross-ness. Unless you're buying organic, you'll wanna use a fruit and veggie wash. The kind you get at the store is crazy expensive, so I started making my own once I read about all the not-so-healthy stuff on the healthy foods I feed my family.
My tried and true homemade fruit and veggie wash is simple and inexpensive as can be. I mix equal parts water and white vinegar. That's it. Hard skinned fruits get a light spray and wipe while soft skinned fruits get a minute soak and light wash. It's easy and effective. The acid in the vinegar kills all the gross junk listed above and I don't spend a fortune making sure my family isn't ingesting gross-ness.
