easily use warm water with a touch of white vinegar- much better than an of those you buy at the store which washes chemicals off with more chemicals!

Re: Looking for Vegetable and Fruit wash...

'Fit' Vegetable wash - MSDS - lists ingredients as:

Water
Citric Acid
Ethanol
Grapefruit oil terpenes
Sodium Lauryl sulfate

I suppose you could replicate that with a sink full of water, dash of lemon juice, dash of vodka, and a drop of dishwashing liquid...
sorry, I don't know how you source the grapefruit oil terpenes, maybe a bit of pureed grapefruit skin ?



I always wash my fruit and veg in water...I quite like the 'chemical' properties of ordinary H2O with a dash of additives...

thank you ! I think I will try the white vinegar and water. Plus it's much cheaper too! I didn't realize that the vegetable wash had all of that in it. I appreciate it.

This is the way to do it. It's even done this way in many professional kitchens.
