distilled white vinegar
Very easy to make! Thanks!
Exactly what I was looking for, thank you!!
I wasn't sure how this was any different than washing the vegetables in water. Does vinegar kill potential bacteria? Either way, I was recommended it to get the wax off of some apples for a recipe. It didn't quite get the waxy shine off of the apples, but I guess it cleaned them better. I ended up rewashing them in super hot water to remove that. Plus, I was afraid of a vinegar after taste on the apples. If it kills something possibly deadly, and that is the intent, than great stuff.
Super easy! Cost efficient! Makes cleaning my fruits and veggies so much easier, especially when paired with the veggie scrubbing gloves, I eat more fruits/veggies now because it's so easy!
What could be simpler. Thanks Sarah.
I use a slightly different ratio of one cup vinegar to three cups water. I put soft skinned items in a bowl and soak them for about two minutes, longer for bumpy stuff like cauliflower and broccoli. If you soak strawberries too long, you'll start to get a vinegar taste even after you rinse them off.
Easy also use to clean kitchen counters. Good for netrualizing underarm odor, spray wait one minute then rinse.
