Spray your fruit and vegetables with the spray solution and gently scrub or rub your produce. Rinse under cold water and serve. You now have fruit and veggies free of pesticides and bacteria!

To Store

Place the spray bottle in the fridge once you’re finished. This homemade fruit and vegetable wash will remain potent for up to one month.
