Washing Produce

Sometimes organic fruits and veggies are not available - at least not the kind you are looking for - and you are forced to buy the kind that has been sprayed with pesticides. Nasty.

What can you do?

Wash them well before you eat them. They have cleaners at the store for around $4, but I have a much better solution - literally.

Again, break out the white vinegar. It will kill 98% of the bacteria on the produce.

Mix a water and white vinegar solution 3:1 into a spray bottle and spray the produce. Rinse the produce with clean water before you eat it.

The same solution can be used on your counters and windows, too. Fabulous!
