Fortunately, you can drastically reduce your exposure to pesticides and bacteria found on produce with a thorough vinegar and water wash. Vinegar and water wash kills 98% of bacteria and removes pesticides.
Mix: 3 parts water to 1 part white vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray on fruits and veggies to get rid of pesticide residue. Rinse with water after spraying.
Another way to clean produce is to fill a bowl with water and add:
1/8 to 1/2 cup of vinegar, depending on the size of your bowl. Place your fruits and veggies in the bowl. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with water.
