“I want to start eating fruits and vegetables, but how do I keep them from going bad?”

This question enters the minds of many people bettering their diets. It can be hard to keep up with all that fresh food!
This simple how-to on washing fruit before you store it, will save you lots of fretting and money.
May the fruits be with you.

How to Keep Fruits and Veggies Fresh
Washing your fruits and veggies in white vinegar removes waxes, film, pesticides, dirt, and mold particles, leaving you with clean, pretty produce that doesn’t go bad as quickly.

Clean your sink, fill it with water, and add 1 cup of vinegar.
If you don’t want to use the sink, you can do it in a metal mixing bowl with a few squigs of vinegar (see below).

Once your bowl or sink is ready…

Add your fresh groceries and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
Give your veggies plenty of love in the process.

Then rinse, let dry, and place in fridge on paper or in glass.


This works wonders for fruits like strawberries and peaches which love to go bad quickly!

Guess there’s no need for GMO fruit after all!
This simple, once well known method will keep organic produce fresh as long as you need.
