You don't need to use anything to wash fruits and vegetables other than soap and water, washed hands and fresh, clean water. Fruits and vegetables are porous and will absorb any "wash" whether it be soap, bleach, or vinegar. Also, many stores are now touting "special washes". Save your money because the "washes' are simply a money making ploy.

A tip: Do not wash fruits and vegetables until serving, because washing before storage causes the produce to spoil more quickly. (06/02/2009)

Make Your Own Vegetable Wash

There are three very safe and healthy ways to wash veggies and fruits.

  1. Lugol's iodine, a few drops in a bowl will kill all bacteria.

  2. Ozonate the water. Ozone is similar to oxygen and will kill all bacteria. You need to buy a machine to produce ozone. You can also ozonate water to drink, very healthy. An inexpensive ozone machine can be used for this. Simply put the ozone bubbler in the bowl of water and set the timer for 5 minutes.

  3. Hydrogen peroxide. About 5 drops in a bowl of water will kill all bacteria. It is most important "not" to use the drug store kind, this is 3% and has some added chemicals not good for human health (good for external use only). Instead buy 35% food grade. This is a concentrate and one pint will make 10 pints.

With all of the above, no rinsing is necessary as all are healthy for humans and no chemical additives to worry about.
