How to Remove Pesticides from Veggies and Fruit

Here is a simple way to ensure that the fruit and veggies you eat are as clean as possible:

* Mix a solution of any basic white vinegar with water in a ratio of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water.

* Pour over your chosen fruit or veggies and allow them to sit for 15 minutes or so.

* Then rinse.

You will be left with clean produce with no lingering aroma of vinegar, and a bowl of dirty looking water showing all the gunk you have removed – the results may surprise you.

Note: Do not use this method on more fragile fruits such as berries as they can become damaged in the process and soak up too much vinegar through their more porous skins.
