This fruit and vegetable wash recipe was passed on to the celiac support group I attend by the woman who spoke about organic food at our last meeting.
It is important to wash your fruit and vegetables, especially when they are not organic. Washes contain citric acid and surfactants to remove wax, soil, and agricultural chemicals.
