Many chemicals are consumed by humans every day through the fruits and vegetables they eat. Organic vegetables and fruits are expensive and hard to find
For this reason, we present to you the best ways to clean your vegetables and fruits:
Rinse with cold water
Rinse the vegetables and fruits with cold water. According to studies, cold water removes 80% of pesticides. Green and leafy vegetables and fruits require more rinsing.
Soak in s alt water
This method is not suitable for fragile fruit, although it removes pesticides in the cracks. Simply put 2 tablespoons of s alt in 4 cups of water and stir. Next, soak the vegetables or fruits for at least 30 minutes, then rinse with some cold water.
Dip in vinegar
Same procedure as with the s alt water. If you don't have vinegar, you can use lemon instead. Just fill 4 cups of water and add 1 cup of vinegar to them. Soak vegetables and fruits for 30 minutes and then rinse with some cold water.
Remove outer layer
Peel the skins of fruits and vegetables, remove the tops and bottoms and use only the insides to reduce the amount of pesticides and bacteria.
According to some people, soap is a good idea, but this is completely wrong. You should not use chemicals to clean food.
Although it is impossible to remove all toxins and pesticides from fruits and vegetables, you can at least try to minimize them. Organic fruits and vegetables cost a lot, but with these tricks you can always eat and have he althier food.
