Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix. Add all fruit/veggies and soak for 10 minutes. Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax or dirty film. Great for Berries too--keeps them from molding.
All fruits and veggies need to be washed, rinsing with water doesn't remove residue. I soak them and add a drop each of lemon, orange and thieves essential oil to remove nasty chemicals before I feed them to my kids!
