Soniabonya 6 years It depends on the produce. If it has a hard or thick surface, like a potato or carrot, I wash and use a veggie scrub, especially if it just came from the garden. If it has a soft skin like tomatoes or lettuce, then I give it a good rinse and wipe down to get any possible dirt off.
