Fruit and Veggie Clean FAQ

  • Is All Produce Contaminated? I buy organic, why do I need a produce wash? 80% of all “conventional produce” has surface pesticide residues 20% of all fresh fruit and vegetables is now “organic” produce but it still has people handling residues, sweat, exhaust from the fumes from the trucks that transported it, contaminants from shipping, drift spray and many more.
  • Why Can’t I Use Bleach or Liquid Dish soap? Neither of these products have been tested for food safety on fresh fruits and vegetables and bleach itself may be a carcinogen, so it is the last thing you want on your food. Also, harsh detergents can penetrate the produce skin and be impossible to rinse away at that point. If you don’t use a produce wash, Kosher salt or vinegar is the preferred alternative, but we’re pretty sure that wouldn’t taste great with your berries and peaches. Produce is sprayed with waxes, insecticides and pesticides some time during crop production for the very purpose of resisting rain. Rain won’t wash off these substances when they’re growing in the field. So a simple rinse under the tap won’t do the trick either.
  • What is Your Kosher Certification? We are certified through the Kosher Supervisors of Wisconsin.
  • Is your wash cruelty free? We Are Vegan and never tested on animals!
  • What is the Active Ingredient? Grapefruit Seed Extract has a proven track record as a non-toxic germicidal agent. It contains no alcohol or chlorine and will not affect the taste or smell of your produce.
  • So this will remove all of the pesticides from my produce? No, if you find a produce wash that makes that claim, beware! This wash has been proven to drastically reduce the amount of surface pesticides found on produce.
  • What Fruits and vegetables have the most pesticide residues? “The Dirty Dozen” which are the fruits and vegetables that have the highest pesticide residues are as follows: apples, celery, sweet bell peppers, peaches, strawberries, nectarines (imported), grapes, spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, blueberries (domestic), potatoes, green beans and kale. (EWG Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides)
  • How do I use this stuff? For a single piece of fruit, just 2 sprays and rub for 30 seconds, rinse thoroughly. For grapes, strawberries, lettuce, etc. fill a bowl with the produce, 4-6 sprays of wash, agitate with hands for 30-60 seconds and then rinse thoroughly. You won’t believe what was left in the bowl.
