The best way to remove clean and remove wax and pesticides from produce is to:
- Fill your sink with water.
- Add 1/4 cup of vinegar.
- Allow to soak for 15 minutes.
This method is more effective than the veggie washes sold in health food stores.
Your best bet is to buy organic produce that does not use pesticides or herbicides and will be easier to wash. Remember, even a thorough wash does not remove some of the chemicals which can seep inside of vulnerable fruits and vegetables, like strawberries.
