When you rinse fruits and veggies under a faucet, you’re actually making two mistakes: wasting water AND washing your produce incorrectly. The best method is to place your produce in a large bowl, fill it to the top with water and add a little white vinegar and baking soda, then let it sit for 10-15 minutes. The vinegar will help disinfect, the baking soda helps clean, and gravity will push dirt and debris to the bottom of the bowl. It’s effective and water-efficient.
