So the other day I bought a whole bunch of fruit, brought it home and was about to wash it. But I realized I was out of the veggie wash that I use around here.
No worries, I scoured the net and discovered you could make your own!
Well doesn’t that just sound handy…not to mention cheaper!
(I came up with my own ratio that works for me)
Make sure your sink is very clean.
(UPDATE: I have been getting a lot of comments about sinks being so dirty. Sure they can be. I wash my dishes and clean my kitchen from my sink, so I’m careful to make sure my sink is clean. Obviously.)
Fill a sink halfway with lukewarm water.
Add 1 cup of white vinegar.
Add your fruit. Don’t over fill your sink with fruit.
Soak for about 10 minutes (shorter for berries – about 2 – 5 minutes).
The Result: Clean. Fruit.
And how did I know they were clean?
The water was dirty, and the apples had that white sheen left on them after the wax has dissolved off.
And if you rinse well, there is no vinegar taste. Even in the berries.
That’s it folks. Easy-peasy.
Don’t overfill your sink with fruit. What you see in the pictures above is all I add at one time.
