distilled white vinegar
Exactly what I was looking for, thank you!!
Very easy to make! Thanks!
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.
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.
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.
Easy also use to clean kitchen counters. Good for netrualizing underarm odor, spray wait one minute then rinse.
I have been using this idea for a while. So much cheaper than fit. I am still using the same fit bottle. My proportions are 3 parts water to 1 part vinegar which is what I read in a magazine. I especially use it for things I will eat raw.
