Fruit and Veggie Wash: Organic Food

If you want something more, here’s a simple recipe to make your own.

To make: in a measuring cup, mix together:

1 tbsp. organic lemon juice
2 tbsp. baking soda
1 cup purified water

To use: Pour the mixture in a spray bottle. To use, spray produce well with wash, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse.
