I love using my essential oils for practical uses around the house! Whenever I buy fruit or veggies, I always clean them really good so we aren't getting any gross bacteria or who knows what from the transport trucks and in the grocery stores. Plus sometimes the produce is covered in wax to help preserve it.. um yuck! I try to purchase organic, but it's not always feasible. So I follow the 80/20 rule and I take the dirty 20 list with me when I go grocery shopping. This is always my cleaning process if I do organic or not!
Here's what I use:
1 Large bowl water to cover produce
1/4 cup vinegar
4-8 drops of lemon essential oil or any citrus oil (wild orange, grapefruit, tangerine)
Swirl around and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Then rinse and store in a container with a paper towel to soak up any moisture.
Not only does this clean the produce, but it also makes it last MUCH longer! #winwin
