My daughter loves strawberries. She opens up the refrigerator when I am busy and proceeds to eat them straight out of the container. I shudder to think what pesticides
are going into her precious tummy because she chomped away before I could wash the berries.
Produce wash can be very expensive, especially if your family eats a lot of fruit and veggies
. You can take the pain out of buying commercial produce wash by making your own organic fruit and veggie wash
. All you need is a spray bottle, one tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 tablespoons vinegar, and 1 cup water. Put the ingredients in the spray bottle and shake well. Spritz on your produce, and rinse well.
The dollar store has inexpensive spray bottles, perfect for your new organic
produce wash. If you happen to have an eager toddler like mine, who just happens to have an independent streak a mile wide, you can spray your produce as soon as you get it home, and no longer worry about what nasty pesticides might be ingested into their tender tummies.
