HAGA Reveals How to Wash Produce with Baking Soda and Vinegar

Incline Village, NV, December 06, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Washing fruits and vegetables properly is just as important as eating them. After all, it would be quite useless to eat healthy foods if they are not thoroughly cleaned first. Traces of pesticide, dirt and dust might still be present on the surface of the produce, which could lead to germ infection if ingested. A good way to prevent this is to wash fruits and vegetables with baking soda and vinegar.

Baking soda and vinegar may seem like basic kitchen ingredients, but they can create a very powerful homemade vegetable wash. This mixture is useful for preventing bacteria, fungi and other viruses from forming. It is a more effective solution compared to using plain old tap water for cleansing produce. Many people actually swear by this household hack and have been doing this for years.

Making the homemade solution is very easy. Just fill a bowl with clean water then add one tablespoon of baking soda and two tablespoons of vinegar. Mix it all up and spend a few minutes washing each fruit and vegetable. Afterwards, just rinse them properly with clean water to wash away the remaining mixture. That should make the produce squeaky clean and ready for cooking or eating.

By using two inexpensive kitchen ingredients like baking soda and vinegar, one can come up with a homemade wash that is much safer and more practical to use. People who regularly buy commercial vegetable wash will even get to save money in the long run with the help of this method.

Those who are looking for a safe, convenient, and all-natural way to clean fruits and vegetables will find the answer they need with this simple DIY vegetable wash. Interested readers can learn more about the whole process by watching the instructional video available at Home and Garden America.
