One of the reasons by buy organic fruits and vegetables is because we think they are clean, not covered with chemicals and pesticides like the rest. But this can be a huge mistake.
Organic plants are not grown the same way as the conventional ones, they are cultivated with natural soil enhancers and fertilizers like worm castings, bone meal or manure. But it`s still possible that they contains traces of chemicals or pesticides on their surface.
If you want to clean your fruits and vegetables properly, make a scrub using baking soda which is a natural element found dissolved in mineral springs. You can find this ingredient in every store and it`s very cheap, but also very efficient bio pesticide which prevents the growth of different viruses, fungi and bacteria.
Add baking soda in some water to get a paste, and then use the paste to clean the fruits and vegetable from the chemicals and pesticides on their surface.
How to prepare it and use it:
- Add 1 tbsp. of baking soda in 1-2 cups of water, then stir the mixture.
- Pour the mixture in a spray bottle, spray it on the products and clean with scrub brush.
- Rinse the products after scrubbing, to remove the residual baking soda.
