HOW TO CLEAN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
It's important to make sure that all fruits and vegetables are thoroughly cleaned before consuming. Much of produce bought in stores can have dirt, pesticide and other harmful residues.
- Fit Spray and other natural produce sprays are great for cleaning and washing your produce efficiently. Just a few sprays removes any wax, pesticide and residues from your fruits and vegetables. Natural cleaners can be made with just a little vinegar and lemon.
- When cleaning produce, allow them to soak in water for at least 5 minutes. This allows the dirt to fall and softens any buildup on the surfaces. Once cleaning is finished, make sure to dry all produce as moisture can easily cause rot.
- When cleaning lettuces, drain most of the mositure from the delicate leaves and lay flat in a large bowl or flat container. Cover the surface of the lettuce with a moist paper towel and replace when needed. This makes sure your lettuces stay crisp and fresh.
