One day I was asked why I clean all my produce, and that was easy. Because I have no idea what’s on my fruits and veggies if I didn’t grow it myself.
Pesticides, bacteria, waxy coating, allergen residue…I don’t take my chances.
I wash everything before we cut or bite into it.
Even if I’m peeling something or not going to eat the rind, I still clean the outside because I don’t want to drag a contaminated knife through my fruits and vegetables.
I use natural soap or apple cider vinegar to wash produce plus my e-cloth Non-Scratch Scrubbing Cloth. One side is fine microfiber while the other side is effective scrubbing material. I like it so much better than a scrub brush.
Friends love this cloth for other cleaning jobs as well: pots and pans, cast iron, bathtubs, ovens, and more.
