I found this on Dr. Oz website. It says "Eating organic fruits and vegetables is the safest way to ensure that your food is pesticide-free. Although great for your body, going solely organic can be tough on your wallet. Try this spray solution for a cost-effective way to remove pesticides from your produce.
The vinegar in this spray has natural anti-bacterial properties, while the lemon juice is a natural astrigent. The solution works to both breakdown & clean off pesticides."
1 C. Water
(Mix in a bowl as it will fizz right out of the spray bottle)
Combine all ingredients in a large container. Transfer to a spray bottle with a pump. Spray mixture on produce & let sit for 5 minutes. Scrub & rinse.
I leave a list of highly suspected vegetables that have pesticides on them and ones that are not on the inside of kitchen door. I keep my spray in the refrig although it doesn't say you have to.
Hope this is helpful to you all.
