How To Clean Fruit & Vegetables Using Apple Cider Vinegar

If you are like me and don’t have easy access to organic food (or refuse to spend $3 on a tomato) and don’t enjoy eating pesticides and chemicals then you should definitely be cleaning your fruit and vegetables. It is really easy, takes little time or effort and uses one simple and cheap ingredient: apple cider vinegar.

ACV has so many different uses. I use it a lot in vegan mayonaise or sour cream recipes to give it that tartness. But ACV is also excellent for cleaning and medicinal uses because it’s anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial.

I have been using this method of cleaning my fruit & veggies since my Dad told me about it 6 months ago. You only need to wash veggies that you plan on eating the skin of, like: greens (spinach, kale, lettuce), tomatoes, capsicums, cucumber, zucchini, pears, apples etc.

My favourite brand of ACV is Braggs ACV. Use the code ZIV994 at iHerb and get $5 off your first order.

How to Clean Fruit & Vegetables Using Apple Cider Vinegar

Step 1: In a big bowl, cover veggies in water and add 1 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar

Step 2: Let the veggies sit for 5 – 10 minutes (I usually skip this step, I’m too impatient!).

Step 3: Scrub the veggies with a brush (make sure its a brush dedicated for this purpose only).

Step 4: Wash scrubbed veggies with water.

Step 5: Let veggies sit on a tea towel and dry, or hand dry them.

And you’re done!
