Whether you buy a conventional or organic foods, it is important that all the fresh ingredients that you enter into your home are nicely washed before you eat them.
Baking soda is a natural solution for cleaning that will help you get rid of pesticides, bacteria, fungi and viruses. This substance is naturally produced in your body in the buffer molecules, so it is not harmful for consuming and will not alter the taste of the food.
For cleaning chemical residues, you need to prepare a mixture of 1/4 cup of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.
Pour this mixture into a spray bottle and spray the products using this mixture. Let them stay like that for about 5 minutes, then rinse them nicely using clean water.
