my mom does this-Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix.  Add all fruit 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.  I do this with strawberries and they last for weeks!

Snack Baggie apples--cut into snack sizes pieces, soak in water for 3-5 minutes, then soak in lemon lime soda for 3-5 minutes. Divide into baggies and refrigerate. Stay fresh, no brown apples, and cheaper than prepackaged ones!!
