How To Make Your Own Fruit and Vegetable Wash

You never know what kind of pesticides or dirt may be lurking on the skin of your favorite fruits and vegetables. That's why it's always a good idea to thoroughly wash all your produce before eating it. Follow these easy steps to find out how to make an organic and inexpensive lemon wash.
          

Although many pesticides get right into the meat of fruits and vegetables due to the timing of spraying techniques, there are many fruits and vegetables which are only sprayed in the latter stages of their growth and hence much of what is chemical residue remains on the outside, especially those fruits and veggies with hard skin.

Step 1: Squeeze Your Lemons

Slice your lemon and squeeze out one tablespoon of lemon juice into your spray bottle. The lemon juice is a natural disinfectant and will leave your fruits and vegetables smelling nice too.

Step 2: Vim And Vinegar

Pour the vinegar into your spray bottle along with one cup of water. The acid in the vinegar will neutralize most pesticides. Screw on the top and shake the mixture vigorously. Spray your wash on all your fruits and vegetables and rinse.
