DIY Fruit & Veggie Wash


When my boys come home after 2-3 hour basketball practices, they’re starving and I know I have to be ready with something for them to snack on, stat. They are much more inclined to grab a fruit or veggie if they can open the refrigerator, grab something, and pop it into their mouths. Nobody has time to wash food, Mom! So I try my best to wash all the produce as soon as I get it home from the grocery store…sometimes it’s a few hours later…but definitely before it’s too late and they’ve already poisoned themselves. I found a DIY Fruit & Veggie Wash recipe over at that I’ve been using and was amazed at how dirty the water looked in my sink. So, today, to prove a point to some well-loved friends, I decided to wash my grapes in a clear bowl so that I could have visible proof of just how important it is to wash it all. Oh wow! Gross!!! As a side note, there’s no need to go spend lots of money on anything pre-made in a bottle. You probably already have white vinegar in your cabinet…and if you don’t, you should, because it’s even great for cleaning around the house. 🙂
