Using Apple Cider Vinegar to Clean Produce

I’ve seen a post on Instagram before suggesting that aside from the normal way we wash or fruits and vegetables, that is washing them through running water, we should soak all our fruits and vegetables in water with apple cider vinegar. I’ve been reading a lot of benefits from apple cider vinegar. It can be used to treat cough and colds, it can also be used to cleanse your body system, increase fat burning, etc.

My mom and I bought fruits from the market today. Before I ate the grapes, I thought to give this cleaning technique a try. So, I mixed 1 cup of water with 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar. Since 1 cup couldn’t fit all the fruits, I just added more.

Here’s a picture of our fruits soaked in water and vinegar. I didn’t edit this picture so you can see the difference.

Here they are after 10 minutes of soaking. Again, no picture editing done here.

As you can see they look a lot cleaner and shinier.

We don’t know where our produce have been before they reached our markets so cleaning them before consumption is a must!

Plus, I might try Bubz’s face mask recipe so it’s better than the orange and lemon skins are already cleaned.
