Even if you buy organic produce, it is recommended that you give your fruits and veggies a good cleaning. Just rinsing with water doesn’t REALLY get them clean. Think about all of the hands who may have touched it to get it from the farm to your table. And if your fruit or veggies aren’t organic, it is especially important to soak them to remove as many of the pesticides as possible. I LOVE how extra clean a good soak with lemon essential oil makes my produce. It also helps everything to last longer in the fridge without molding!
Large Bowl of Water (I use hot tap water to kill even more mold spores on the produce)
¼ c. white vinegar
5 drops of lemon essential oil
Soak for 10 minutes. Rinse well in cold water. Dry thoroughly before storing in the refrigerator.
