Who likes clean fruits and veggies?! ME!
I mean really, that is obviously a rhetorical question cause really who the hell likes duurrrttyy fruits and veggies?!
I know a TON of people (not judging but kinda judging…#sorrynotsorry) who will take the fruits they bought from the market and put it directly into their mouths…*gag* DO YOU WANT A DISEASE?! Remove that fruit from your mouth and go wash that ish before you contract a deadly virus and I get to wiggle my finger in your face and tell you “I told you so” in the most annoying way possible.
Just think about it…do you know how many hands that fruit has passed?! That’s like letting 10 random people take their dirty hands and putting it directly into your mouth and making you eat the dirty bacteria off their fingers. I don’t think anyone would appreciate that. lol!
So, now that we got that nasty little tidbid in and out of your head, I would like to encourage everyone to PLEASE wash your fruit!
I did some research for myself and for you guys, and found out the best way to wash your fruit is to used clean distilled water. Let your fruit sit in water for at least 1-2 minutes before eating it…BUT if you’re a crazy paranoid freak like me, you’ll use a fruit wash. 😉
This is the first fruit wash I’ve bought and I have to say I’m pretty satisfied with it.
Fit Organic Fruit and Vegetable Wash
The pack I bought came with a spray as well; I thought this was super cool.
Washes off wax
Washes off dirt
You can actually feel the difference, before and after (and it gives you peace of mind)
It’s simple enough to do on all fruits and veggies
Does NOT wash off Pesticides (it’s not magic and can’t just make inorganic food organic…)
Washing with distilled water supposedly does the same (according to studies)
Here is the step by step on how to do this.
Step 1: The cap has a “fill to” line; fill that up and pour it into a large bowl.
Add ½ a gallon of water…
Make sure all your produce is completely covered! No single dirty grape goes unwashed!
Let it sit for at least 2-3 minutes. I like to swish it around and rub it a bit just for my own crazy mind sake…;)
After you do that, RINSE well all the fruit in running water. I can guarantee you you’ll feel a difference!
For the spray, it works better with single fruits and veggies; spray directly on to fruit, rub for 1 minute, rinse, eat.
I absolutely like to do everything I can to minimize the amount of work to do later. Lol I am the laziest of all! Costco has tons of great fruit. Their veggies I am not always happy with (it always goes bad in a day or two!) but their fruit has never failed me. If you buy their bulk fruit, I highly recommend prewashing everything before throwing it in the fridge. This stops you from having to wash it when you want to eat it and it’s cold and delicious! If you choose to do this, just remember you are washing wax off your produce and that wax helps preserve things…so eat your produce quickly if you prewash! 🙂
