Want a quick and easy trick to clean your produce? I have found a trick with this Vinegar Fruit Wash using a salad spinner!
There are tons of tutes on Pinterest that teach you how to disinfect your fruits and vegetables by simply using vinegar.
This easy trick I found helpful and I thought I could share it with y’all!
I bought some berries the other day.
And remembered my mother telling me that my father recently had strict diet restrictions that prevented him from eating berries simply due to the pesticides and how dirty certain fruits can be.
The tiny seeds in berries hold all that dirt, making it dangerous for him.
It got me to thinking – time to come up with a better solution!
I made the typical fruit wash mix – a 1:1 ratio of Water to vinegar.
Then, I poured the mixture into my salad spinner.
Since berries are better refrigerated, but still need to be soaked for about an hour to fully remove the pesticides, using a salad spinner is a great way to keep them chilled while disinfecting.
Into the fridge they went! And rinsing was super easy. After soaking for a while, just take out the basket and rinse!
I let them soak for about 30 minutes.
I was able to use the same vinegar fruit wash for all my berries in the same way.
Even my apples got a rinse!
Just look at the water afterward!
One surprising thing – I even noticed that my fruit stayed fresh significantly longer after the vinegar fruit wash, too.
Don’t have a salad spinner? No worries!
I’ve disinfected my fruit in my kitchen sink before, as well.
All in all, a super easy trick to clean your fruits and veggies with minimal cost.
