Washing Root Vegetables

I tried once or twice, years ago, to get into using those bristled vegetable brushes to scrub my potatoes and other veggies. It just didn't work for me. The bristles always wore down entirely too quickly. For years now I've kept a Scotch-Bright scratch pad (the flat kind) on the left side of my kitchen sink. I use it exclusively for scrubbing vegetables. When it gets smelly, I toss it into the washer with the other kitchen items. When it gets too worn, I replace it. Works for me!

When my harvest is in, I clean my carrots and cukes and any hard skinned veggie by rinsing out my washer and fill it with cold water and throw in my veggies.

After harvesting carrots, potatoes or baby cukes, place them in the bottom of your washer without soap and allow them to soak to loosen the dirt. This combined with the spin cycle will cause them to become squeaky clean.
