BPA-free, #2 recyclable spray bottle imprinted with homemade recipes for produce washing.

If you are not buying organic produce, there's a good chance
that pesticides, bacteria and other contaminants may be lurking
on the surface of your fruits and vegetables. That's why it's
important to thoroughly wash your fruits and vegetables before
eating them or serving them to your family and guests.


This is especially true for produce and greens that are to be eaten
raw. Health experts even advise that people wash produce that
will be peeled and skinned before eating.

Research has shown that pesticides have been linked to a number of serious health defects, such
as birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and other effects that might occur over a long period of
time. Pesticides pose unique health risks to children. Because their immune systems and organs
are not yet fully developed, children are often more vulnerable to exposure to pesticide chemicals.

 

Produce contaminated by bacterias such as Listeria, Salmonella, and E. Coli can cause
deadly food-borne illnesses and need to be washed away from your produce.

 

The recipes imprinted on our Produce Wash recipe spray bottle utilize the natural cleansing and disinfectant properties of several ingredients, including vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda, and grapefruit seed extract, to help you produce your own homemade produce wash to clean and remove harmful residues of pesticides, bacteria and other contaminants.

 

Independent research performed by the editors of Cooks Illustrated and the Institute of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at Tennessee State University concluded that expensive commercial veggie washes are not very effective or necessary. In addition, their research showed that vinegar and water solutions were the most effective methods at cleaning produce. The easy-to-mix recipes imprinted on our Produce Wash spray bottle are inspired by this research and will help you stay healthy and save a lot of money by mixing your own solutions.
