I think most people do wash their produce before consuming it, but I don’t think most people have stopped to ask themselves if washing their produce really does make a difference.

Or better yet, is your washing routine really getting your produce clean?

 

Here’s the deal:

Washing your fruits and veggies is an absolute must. From several hands handling your produce to pesticides and produce being grown in manure, not washing produce is simply not an option in my house.

If you want to know why I am so passionate about washing my fruits and veggies, read my blog on why we should wash our fruits and vegetables before eating them. You will be shocked when you find out what it sitting on the skin of your produce.

 

But here the real issue….

Most people are improperly washing their produce. Yep, you heard me.

You’re probably wondering if it is even possible to wash your produce incorrectly. I assure you it is possible and in fact, you might be guilty of it.

Over the years,  I have had the luxury of traveling and meeting new people. I started to notice a theme with the people I met, and how they handled their produce. They usually fell into one of the three categories I listed below.

1. Germ Lover – The person who does not wash their produce at all because they either think germs and bacteria are good for you or because they are simply lazy

2. The Quick Rinser – This person quickly rinses their produce under running water before consuming

3. Bubble Fanatic – This person scrubs their produce with liquid detergent

Now, if you fall into any of the above categories, you’re guilty of washing your produce improperly.

 

Here’s why:

 

1. Yes, germs are good for us…sometimes. However, before our produce lands in our fridge, it has been exposed to many hands and pesticides. Not to mention, many of our fruits and veggies are grown in manure. Do you really want that in your body?

Now you might be thinking:

But I eat all organic, so I do not have to worry about that. WRONG.

Did you know that even organic farms use pesticides? Yep, they sure do.

2. Simply rinsing off your produce with water will not wash away all the chemicals your produce has been exposed to.

3. Many of our liquid soaps today are filled with all sorts of chemicals and synthetic properties.

Let me ask you this…

What color is your soap? What does it smell like? Guess what, all that synthetic coloring and fragrance is going all over your produce when you wash it in soap.

Alright, so you’re probably wondering what the heck you can wash your produce with right?

Well, guess what, you came to the right place. Below I am going to share with you the Top 3 Fruit and Veggie Washes on the market today.

VEGGIE WASH ALL NATURAL FRUIT AND VEGETABLE WASH

COMPANY PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Stop Rinsing. Start Cleaning! Pesticides and other agricultural chemicals are specifically engineered to be “waterproof” so they are not washed off by rain and irrigation. Many fruits and vegetables are also coated in wax to preserve the quality and appearance of the produce from the fields to your kitchen table.

Veggie Wash safely and effectively removes wax, soil and agricultural chemicals found on standard and organic produce. It cuts through wax and chemicals to leave fruits and vegetables truly, safely clean.

✔ PROS OF THE VEGGIE WASH

The Veggie Wash is the most affordable out of all of the washes. We also felt that the Veggie Wash did a really good job at getting our produce clean.

✘ CONS OF THE VEGGIE WASH

The Veggie Wash has a bit of a smell to it, but definitely not offensive in any way. However, we found that the wash left a bit of a greasy residue on our produce.

 

FIT ORGANIC

COMPANY PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fit Organic wash removes 98% more waxes, pesticides, and other contaminants from your fruits and veggies than water alone. Produce is porous and water just won’t clean down into the many uneven bumps and grooves that coat your fruits and vegetables.

✔ PROS OF THE FIT ORGANIC WASH

Out of all the washes, the Fit Organic wash did not have a smell to it and did not leave a residue on the produce.

✘ CONS OF THE FIT ORGANIC WASH

The Fit Organic wash is the most expensive out of all of the other washes we tested.

We also felt that the Fit Organic wash was not as effective as the other two washes. We had to add a little more elbow grease when scrubbing.

✔ PROS OF THE EAT CLEANER®

The Eat Cleaner® spray definitely does get the job done in getting your produce clean. We found that this spray did the best when it came to cleaning our produce.

This developer of The Eat Cleaner® wash claims that their spray will increase the shelf life of your produce, and it did hold true.

In our testing phase, we bought two bags of grapes. We washed one of the bags with The Eat Cleaner® spray and the other we just rinsed with water. The bag of grapes that was sprayed with The Eat Cleaner® spray lasted three days longer than the other bag of grapes. It was astonishing.

 

✘ CONS OF THE EAT CLEANER®

The Eat Cleaner® spray is at a mid-level price point. However, The Eat Cleaner® spray does increase the shelf life of your produce. Which means it is actually saving you money in the long run due to less waste. So big bonus points for that.

The only downside to The Eat Cleaner® is the smell is not the greatest. It is not a bad smell, it just had the strongest smell out of all the sprays we tested.

 

OVERALL WINNER

Even though we felt all the sprays did a good job, we have chosen Eat Cleaner® as the top vegetable and fruit cleaner.

Not only does this spray get your produce squeaky clean but it even prolongs the shelf life of your produce, which translates into big saves and less waste. It is a winner in our books.
