Homemade Fruit and Vegetable Cleaner

Homemade Fruit and Vegetable Cleaning Spray

Keep your fruit and vegetables as healthy as possible by giving them a quick clean before eating. And this simple spray helps remove that waxy coating from apples and any dirt or lingering pests from fresh produce. Here's how to make the cleaning concoction:

  1. In a large spray bottle, mix together 1/4 cup vinegar with 4 cups water. Shake to distribute.
  2. To use, arrange fruits and vegetables on a dish towel and liberally spray. Allow produce to sit for 10 minutes, and then rinse. The vinegar naturally cleans fruits and veggies, removing any unwanted coatings from items. And giving your produce a splash washes everything down the drain.
  3. Or, if you've got a big batch of items to clean, clear out your sink, give it a good cleaning, and then fill halfway with water. Mix in 1 cup of vinegar and add the produce. Let soak for 10 minutes, then rinse and pat dry.
