Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful evening. I am taking a break from a busy day to share a new grocery day food prep video. Grocery day is a big day in our home. First, its prepping with the list and coupons, then shopping and once but once I get home, the job just starts over. If you want to see what I am taking about, check out the video below!
Many fruits and vegetables are grown with pesticides to get rid of bugs. Plus there is a lot of other outside elements that also matter. Fortunately, you can drastically reduce your exposure to pesticides and bacteria found on produce with a thorough vinegar and water wash. Experts found that a white vinegar and water wash kills 98% of bacteria and removes pesticides.I have been using vinegar for years and it works great on vegetables. You can either make a spray or clean your fruits and veggies as I did in the video above. Here's the recipes:
Vinegar and Water Veggie Spray:
Mix 3 parts water to 1 part white vinegar (3:1 ) in a spray bottle.
Spray on fruits and veggies to get rid of pesticide residue.
Rinse with water after spraying.
Fill a sink or a bowl with water and add 1/8 to 1/2 cup of vinegar, depending on the size of your bowl.
Place your fruits and veggies in the bowl.
Soak for 15 to 20 minutes.
Rinse with water and allow fruits and veggies to dry before storing.
I hope these tips help you save money by making your fresh fruits and veggies last longer. :) Be sure to let me know if you have any questions! If you are new here, I'd love it if you took a second to get subscribed! xx
