One issue with purchasing conventional produce is that it probably has pesticide residues on the surface and it may also have been waxed. The waxing is used to increase appeal on the store shelves and to give it a longer shelf life. There is no need to purchase a separate and oft expensive “veggie wash” to wash produce. Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds—one drop in a bowl of water—works great to rid fruit and vegetables of both these substances, as I demonstrate here in this video. If you’re washing fruits and veggies with Castile Soap, use 1 dash (approximately 1/4 tsp.) in a bowl of water.
