Lately we hear more and more about the fact that fruits and vegetables exported from several countries are full of pesticides. Therefore, the reluctance with which we buy fruits and vegetables is completely justified, because when we decide to buy them we must think about our health.
We come to your rescue by disclosing a trick that you must try in order not to be stressed when you go shopping, and to be sure that everything you eat is healthy.
Pour 5 liters of water and 500 ml of apple vinegar into a bowl. Place the fruits and vegetables you have just bought into the bowl and leave them there for 15 minutes. Remove the fruits and vegetables from the pot and rinse them well with water.
Congratulations, you have just removed all traces of pesticides or bacteria!
Apple cider vinegar kills 98% of bacteria and pesticides that are found in fruits and vegetables. This way, the fruits and vegetables that you eat from now on will be healthier for your body.
For products with very high percentage of pesticides, try the following solution:
– 1 cup of water, half a cup of apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of baking soda and a few drops of grapefruit seed extract. Let the ingredients soak in this mixture for an hour.
Peel fruits or vegetables
This is maybe the best way to remove harmful pesticides, especially when it comes to apples. Rinse the apples with water before you peel them.
