Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash

Easy fruit and vegetable wash using organic and natural ingredients to clean your produce. If you’ve been using a vinegar fruit wash or even a baking soda fruit wash with water, you are cleaning your vegetables with natural veggie wash already, but now you have

an easier solution, homemade veggie wash that’s mixed and ready to use!

What I love about our homemade fruit and  veggie wash;

  1. 3 Simple Ingredients.
  2. Safe for my family
  3. Can Make Whenever I need
  4. Cute container.
  5. It works.

Now you can make your own natural fruit and veggie wash! 

1  Cup of Distilled water

1 Cup of Vinegar

1 Tablespoon of Baking Soda

Mix in a bowl, the water and vinegar, then add the baking soda it will fizz up and get all bubbly, let it rest, then pour into spray container, and that’s it,  simple and easy.

OR:  I you have a bag of Apples, oranges, tomatoes, lemons, limes etc, you can fill up the sink and add 1 cup of vinegar and 2-tbs of baking soda to the water, immerse your produce and let sit for 15 minutes, use a scrub brush and brush the produce gently.  On soft produce use the spray and let sit for 5 minutes then rinse and dry.   To dry, just lay a towel on the counter and put the wet produce on it and let it air dry before you place in refrigerator.

Why This Works

The acetic acid in the vinegar kills bacteria and the baking soda helps to dissolve the wax, pesticide and fertilizer residues found on the skins of many fruits and vegetables. It’ll also rid just-picked produce of any bugs that may be hanging on. Sure beats finding a slug or cabbage worm in your salad!

Benefits of Making Your Own Fruit and Vegetable Wash

Making your own produce wash has several benefits: It’s cheaper than store-bought washes, it cleans more effectively than water alone, and it’s made with all-natural ingredients.

**Tip – make sure your fruit and vegetables dry thoroughly before you put them in the refrigerator, they will last longer when dried.
