A Simple Trick Removes Pesticides from Your Vegetables & Fruits

Fruits and vegetables

So much of our fresh fruits and vegetables are covered in waxy films or have pesticide residues. Below is a short video showing a quick, simple and cheap way of removing any residues.

We all know that including fruit and vegetables in our daily diets is good for our health, however residues of many hazardous pesticides are still detected in worryingly high levels. Not everybody has the means to buy or the access organic produce.

Here is a simple way to ensure that the fruit and veggies you eat are as clean as possible:

* Mix a solution of any basic white vinegar with water in a ratio of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water.

* Pour over your chosen fruit or veggies and allow them to sit for 15 minutes or so.

* Then rinse.

You will be left with clean produce with no lingering aroma of vinegar, and a bowl of dirty looking water showing all the gunk you have removed – the results may surprise you.

Note: Do not use this method on more fragile fruits such as berries as they can become damaged in the process and soak up too much vinegar through their more porous skins.
