What is the best fruit and vegetable wash? There have been a number of people who reported outbreaks of food poisoning attributed to something which may have been sprayed on the fruits or vegetables to keep them fresh. Young Living’s LEMON essential oil to the rescue . . . again!
LEMON is the very best fruit and veggie was ever! I use a large pot and do 2 “shakes” of the bottle into the water and add the fruit and veggies. Allow them to sit for 5-10 minutes, rinse under running water, and enjoy! I have never found that there was a “lemon taste”, although I would not find that to be offensive. An alternative is THIEVES HOUSEHOLD CLEANER. (I always have it in the kitchen for dishes and counters bot diluted in a spray bottle and the normal strength bottle.) I fill the pot with water and use about 1/2 cap full.
Note: Any of the Young Living citrus oils can safely and effectively be used to clean the produce.
Young Living has recently released a Thieves Fruit & Veggie Soak that makes it so much easier for us to wash our produce! It also contains a powerhouse of oils: DiGize, Thieves, and Purification (and Lemon, which I mentioned earlier). Now, isn’t that WONDERFUL???
