If you love your avocado toast, listen up: Wash your avocadoes before slicing into them. The outside of an avocado has been touched countless times by hands at the farm, sorting facility, supermarket and finally at your home. When you take a knife to it, you contaminate the inside of the fruit by spreading potential illness-causing bacteria from the outside in. The solution? All you have to do is give the fruit a simple wash before slicing it up. This tip goes for any fruit or veggie you slice through the outer skin: Always wash it first.
