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!

Must remember this.... When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water.  Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge.  The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface.  Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft....Gotta try…

Once I did this to blackberries and they were good for 3 WEEKS!  Thats unheard of with berries  water.  The vinegar is KEY :)
