I only learned this recently and don’t always remember to do it.
But, I feel better about eating my produce when I do.
Here’s 3 ways to wash pesticides off your produce:
- Salt water
Soak produce in salt water using Himalayan salt or sea salt for 20 minutes. Rinse with water afterwards.
- Baking Soda
Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to 2 cups of water and soak produce for 15 minutes. Rise with water afterwards.
- White wine vinegar
Soak produce in vinegar and water for 20 minutes. Use 1-part vinegar to 4-parts water, so 1 cup of vinegar would need to be mixed with 4 cups of water. Porous fruits such as berries may become soggy when soaked for too long.
