Regardless if the food you bought was organic or not always remember to wash it thoroughly and properly before consuming it. Make sure you don’t ingest any toxins by scrubbing the products under water or even better, with baking soda since it is a versatile cleaning aid. It will help you get rid of pesticides, bacteria, fungi and viruses. You can also do it by using a substance which our body naturally produces. This makes it the healthiest option for us which will not alter the taste as well.
For cleaning chemical residues, you need to prepare a mixture of 1/4 cup of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.
Pour this mixture into a spray bottle and spray the products using this mixture. Let them stay like that for about 5 minutes, then rinse them nicely using clean water.
Vegetables with a thick crust
When it comes to vegetables which have thick rind, such as melon, you must know that you need to wash those vegetables really good, because during the cutting the bacteria can easily transfer from the bark into the flesh of the vegetable.
In order to clean the bark from these bacteria, you need to add a few tablespoons of baking soda in a cup or two of water.
Now you need to pour the liquid into a spray bottle, and let it rest for about 3-5 minutes.
Then you need to use this mixture to clean the bark of the vegetable.
As soon as you do that you need to rinse the vegetables under cold water.
