    Where can I get fruit wash

    Primal Fuel
    I read in Mark's book that it is a good idea to use some kind of fruit wash to clean vegetables and fruit.

    I live in Australia and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction about where I can buy some, or is there a better way than just plain water?

    I just use tap water but here is how you can make your own:

    "For Hard-skinned Fruits and Vegetables:

    1. Fill a spray bottle with equal parts white vinegar and water.

    2. Then, spray the solution onto your fruits and vegetables; rub it in; and rinse.

    For Soft-skinned Fruits and Vegetables:

    1. Fill a bowl with equal parts white vinegar and water.

    2. Then, soak your fruits and vegetables in the solution for a minute or two, and rinse.

    Why This Works
    The acetic acid in vinegar kills bacteria and helps to dissolve the wax and pesticide residues found on the skins of many fruits and vegetables.
    Benefits of Making Your Own Fruit and Vegetable Wash
    •cheaper than store-bought washes
    •cleans more effectively than water alone
    •all-natural

    Tips and Warnings
    1) Use a scrub brush to work the solution into the skin

    2) Store your fruit and vegetable wash out of the reach of children

    3) Always label the contents of your spray bottles"

    Vinegar does wonders. I use it to clean my produce, counters, and even in place of fabric softener.

    vinegar FTW. conventional fruits and veggies ALWAYS get a vinegar rinse, even when they're on the "clean 15" list or going to be peeled.
