Many growers subject produce to a toxic treatment to protect it from pests and fungal attack. Sometimes produce is also coated with a wax or oily substance to prevent decay and preserve quality and appearance during transportation. But this waxy layer can also have the unwanted effect of trapping undesirable dirt and debris.
Make sure your fresh fruits and vegetables are free of dirt, waxes and debris on their surfaces. Wash them well with plenty of fresh, running water and use the Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth to ensure that they deliver nothing but the good nutrition and taste you and your family deserve.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG), Dirty Dozen Plus™, list of fruits and vegetables with the most pesticide residues includes: strawberries, apples, nectarines, peaches, celery, grapes, cherries, spinach, tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and cucumbers, as well as hot peppers, kale and collard greens. The EWG suggests buying organic for these items. We say, “even so, use your Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth!”
Watermelon and rockmelon should always be washed before cutting them. If not, the knife blade may bring germs and bacteria from the surface down into the flesh of the fruit when they are cut.
