It is so important to buy organic fruits and veggies. If you aren’t buying organic, consider buying a fruit/veggie wash like the “fit” brand, or soaking fruit in a warm water & vinegar solution at least 20 minutes before eating it. If possible, scrub fruit with a towel or sponge too. Fruits soaked in pesticides shouldn’t be making any appearances in your kitchen this season.
