"You won’t be purchasing anymore expensive store bought veggie/fruit wash after you try this! I have been using this for years, this cost only pennies to make and will remove dust and dirt and kill any little bugs and bacteria, it’s all natural no chemicals and it also works as a preserver to help your fruit and veggies last much longer, don’t worry about the exact amounts, I really don’t bother to even measure.. oh and did I mention this stuff really does work! Store any unused spray in the refrigerator for up to 1 week"

FOR THE SPRAY


Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle (careful as this will foam up) shake gently; spray on veggies or fruit, then allow to site for 5 minutes; rinse with cold water.

FOR THE SOAK


Step 2

Fill your sink, basin, or a large bowl/container with a small amount of hot water, add salt, stir to dissolve salt completely, then add in cold water and the vinegar. Swish with hands to combine. Place your fruits and/or veggies in the solution, then allow to sit for 30 minutes, although I have left it in much longer the solution will not effect the flavor; rinse under cold water.

So much cheaper than buying that stuff in the store, and works every bit as good. I use this on a regular basis for all my fruit and vegetables. I won't be without these basic ingredients so I can have it at my fingertips! Thank you for sharing this it with us!
