Keeping your kitchen clean is vital because your family’s health depends on it! Washing and sanitizing everything from your utensils to your food must always be number one when keeping your household safe and bacteria free. Some of the most common foods that we often forget to wash are raw fruits and veggies!
Even though most peels are not edible, washing is extremely important because it removes all the parasites, germs, and bacteria, (including E. Coli) carried by the little soil or dirt on your produce that could potentially make you sick.
Most supermarkets carry ready-made washes, but why spend on chemical-based ones when you can make your own from organic and pure Lemon Essential Oil in the safety of your clean kitchen!
Ingredients for your very own Fruit and Veggie Wash:
First, add 5-6 drops of Castile Soap to 100 mL of water.
Stir it well.
Next, add 2 drops of Lemon Essential Oil and give it another good stir. Just by its scent, you know that your fruits and vegetables will be squeaky clean!
Pour in a spray bottle.
To use, spray the Fruit and Veggie Wash to your produce. Let it soak for about 30 seconds.
Rinse with clean water.
And pat them dry.
And there you have it, squeaky clean produce ready for your tummy! Lemon Essential Oil has amazing antimicrobial properties, making it ideal for those pesky bacteria and germs on your beautiful produce. Now, go enjoy your fruits and veggies in peace!
