Make your own fruit/veggie wash

With how many fruits and vegetables we eat, I am always buying fruit and veggie wash from the store at $6 a pop. Well I’m saying no more! So I am sharing how to make your own fruit and veggie wash. It’s super simple to make at home and will save you money in the long run.

DIY Fruit & Veggie Wash

I love these amber glass spray bottles!

Here is what you will need:

I have used Doterra essential oils for over 8 years and swear by them!
  1. Fill your glass spray bottle 1/4 of the way with white vinegar
  2. Add 5 drops of On Guard or Theives essential oil
  3. Add 5 drops of Lemon essential oil
  4. Add 1 tsp of baking soda
  5. Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water

Shake it all up and spray any fruits, or veggies that need washing. It is literally that easy.

Speaking of washing…do you know about the dirty dozen? This is the list of fruits and veggies that are found to have the highest amount of pesticide residue, so I ALWAYS make sure to wash them really well (organic or not), before we eat them. Regardless of what is on this list, I like to wash ALL my fresh produce before we eat them, since they are handled by so many people/things before they come home with you!

Dirty Dozen

  1. Strawberries
  2. Spinach
  3. Kale
  4. Nectarines
  5. Apples
  6. Grapes
  7. Peaches
  8. Cherries
  9. Pears
  10. Tomatoes
  11. Celery
  12. Potatoes

Now you can easily wash and enjoy all your produce with safe & simple ingredients in your fruit/veggie wash!
