Here is the most effective homemade method to eliminate pesticides from fruits and vegetables

May 12, 2018 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

Nowadays, it is really difficult to buy healthy and genuine food. Especially, when it comes to fruits and vegetables, the main danger is that of not being able to eliminate pesticides and chemicals that are almost certainly present on their exterior.

In fact, worrying about cleaning the exterior of fruits and vegetables does not completely solve the problem, because the chemicals could also have penetrated into the interior pulp. However, this is a warning that certainly does not hurt to keep in mind, while trying to limit the damage.

In this article, you will find the best homemade method to clean all the fruit and vegetables you buy, thereby, making certain that you have eliminated all of the harmful substances that you possibly can.

There is a very simple way to clean the exterior of fruit and vegetables! Just use this solution that is prepared with only two ingredients that everyone has at home.

In fact, the solution consists of 90% water and 10% white vinegar. Just fill a very large bowl with this solution, introduce the fruit or vegetables and leave them to soak for about 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly under abundantly running water.

There are some precautions to be taken in the specific case of some foods. For example, blueberries have an extremely absorbent skin, so you will need to let them soak for a very short time (a few minutes), to avoid their taste being modified by the white vinegar. If it happens, with blueberries as well as with any other food, you can decrease the taste of vinegar by rinsing the fruit or vegetable with lemon water.

After soaking, it is possible to see residues that have accumulated on the bottom of the bowl or basin. These residues are partly made up of pesticides or other products normally used to make the fruit or vegetables appear shinier. 

If you cannot stand the strong smell of vinegar, you can substitute it with a 2% salt and water solution. 

These methods help with the elimination of pesticides and chemicals on food products but they do not completely remove them. 

Remember: Take some time to clean the fruit and vegetables that you are going to serve your family! It is a very important step that allows you and your family to ingest a lot fewer chemicals!
