Fruit & veggie wash
What's the honest-to-goodness best way to wash your produce?
Use water and white vinegar - no lie. A few squirts on your fruits and veggies gets rid of the nasty stuff (like pesticide residue) that you don't want - no store-bought washes necessary. Sincerely yours, Ideal Bite.
Brushing bugs under the rug. A diluted vinegar rinse kills 98% of bacteria on produce - researchers found it works even better than a scrub brush.
Cash savings you can believe in. Water and vinegar rinses cost just pennies; the premade washes we found cost $4 and up.
It's a simple truth: Buying plastic bottles of produce wash means having to recycle them too (not to mention the energy and materials needed to make and ship them in the first place) - you'll still need to buy bottles of vinegar, but you'll buy fewer of them.
Mix water to white vinegar 3:1 in a spray bottle (if you've already got a bottle of the premade stuff, use it up and reuse the sprayer). Rinse with water after you spray. Yes, it's that easy.
FROM RIA: also you can use for cleaning other items <g>

Yup, I keep a spray bottle of Vinegar-Water that I use for a produce spray and just about everything else in the kitchen.I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
