Homemade Natural Fruit and Veggie Wash
Prep time
Total time
You will love this simple and very frugal recipe to make your own version for much less than the commercial ones sold in the store!
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • ½ of a lemon or 1 TBSP of Lemon Juice
(You can omit the vinegar if you do not like it, but it doesn't seem to affect the taste to us)
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl in the order listed above. Please note, there will be a reaction between the vinegar and baking soda, so you need to have a large enough bowl for the mixture to at least double in size before the reaction calms back down.
  2. Transfer to a spray bottle with a pump by pouring the mixture from the bowl into a funnel. Please note, the reaction will start again and so pour it in slowly. The slower that you pour it in, the milder the reaction.
  3. Once made, spray mixture on produce and let sit for 5 minutes. Scrub and rinse clean!
