I’ve spoken about veggie washes for inorganic/non organic produce before on the blog, but often get asked how do I handle the lack of organic produce here in the barren desert, so here’s something you can try at home too.
Lemon/Baking Soda Wash
1 Tbsp. lemon juice – (natural disinfectant) 2 Tbsp. baking soda (neutralises the PH level of pesticides)
1/4 cup vinegar (cleans the fruits and vegetables and neutralizes most pesticides)
2 Tbsp. salt (draws out dirt and insects)
1 Tbsp. Lemon juice – (natural disinfectant) 2 Tbsp. Vinegar (cleans the fruits and vegetables neutralizes most pesticides)
Just fill a sink or a large bowl with water and the above ingredients (depending on the method you choose) and let the vegetables sit for about 20 minutes then rinse or else you can fill an empty water bottle and spray onto your produce and then rinse and wipe.
