Did you know that rinsing your fruits and veggies with water isn’t enough? We’ve all heard before that we need to do more to our fruits and veggies before we eat them. But did you know that pesticides and other agricultural chemicals are specifically engineered to be “waterproof” so they are not washed off by rain and irrigation? Many fruits and vegetables (grapes, apples, cucumbers, etc.) are also coated in wax to preserve the quality and appearance of the produce so that from the fields to your kitchen table they look just as good.
What this means is when you simply rinse your produce with water, you’re not actually cleaning anything off at all. And, not to gross you completely out, but in addition to agricultural chemicals and other residues, 20 or more strangers may have handled your fruit or vegetable before you put it in your mouth. Imagine letting 20 hands touch your food before you eat it. Yuck!
That’s why I’m glad there are products like Veggie Wash. Veggie Wash safely and effectively removes wax, soil, and agricultural chemicals found on standard and organic produce. It cuts through wax and chemicals to leave fruits and vegetables truly, safely clean. What’s more, Veggie Wash uses ingredients from citrus, corn, and coconut, to remove harmful surfaces. The natural solvents gently get rid of the gunk. Then you can just rinse it off, and eat the best tasting produce you’ve probably ever had!
Veggie Wash is available in natural and organic formulas. The Organic Veggie Wash is Kosher, vegan and certified organic by Oregon Tilth in association with the USDA. You can buy Veggie Wash in many Whole Foods and Sprouts stores and it’s also sold on Amazon.
