The saying “an apple a day keeps the doctors away” is no longer true these days because of the huge amounts of chemical that the fruit is exposed to. According to some studies, apples ranked high in the list of produce that is contaminated with pesticide. This is a very alarming fact. You can always opt for organic apples in the market but these are a bit expensive. If you are on a tight budget but still wants to get the benefits from apples, you should know how to naturally clean this fruit.
To safely clean apples you will need:
1 cup water
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup white vinegar
1 tsp. baking soda
In a pitcher, combine water, lemon juice and vinegar. Mix the solution well then wait until the bubbling has subsided before transferring it in a spray bottle.
Spray the apples all over with the solution and leave for 5 minutes. The lemon juice and vinegar will break down the pesticide and chemical residue and even wax that is left in the apple.
Rinse the apples under clean running water until it is thoroughly cleaned. Wash your hands to make sure that the pesticide which may have transferred to your hands is removed.
Clean the sink or area where you washed the apple. There may still be pesticide left in the surface.
Another method you can use is by soaking the apple in a prepared solution.
Here’s what you will need
6 tsp. sea salt
6 cups water
Clean cloth or towel
When buying sea salt, choose one with smaller grains so it is easier to dissolve. Salt with larger chunk is difficult to dissolve in water.
Clean the apples by brushing it with a produce brush. Make sure that remove any visible dirt. Pay attention near its stem for dirt lodged in the grooves.
Prepare the basin with sea salt then add the water. Mix the solution until the salt is dissolved.
Soak the apple in the solution for 3-5 minutes before rinsing it with running water.
Dry the apples with clean cloth or towel.
Don’t forget to discard the water in the basin and clean the area to remove any pesticides transferred there. Also, properly wash your hands with soap under running water.
With these methods you can now enjoy eating not just apples but other fruits and vegetables without worrying about any harmful pesticides.
