How to wash vegetables and fruits the right way?Often pesticides are sprayed on the plants during cultivation. Therefore it is likely that the vegetables and fruits which we buy in the market for our consumption may have residues of pesticides on them.
According to reports, washing with 2% salt water is likely to remove most of the pesticides residues from the surface of the fruits and vegetables. Certain fruits like mangoes, grapes, apples, guava and pears etc. and vegetables like bitter gourd, tomatoes, brinjal and okra etc. are likely to contain more pesticides in their crevices.
Washing with a 10% solution of vinegar in water or with warm water is also likely to be helpful in removing the contaminants. Peeling the fruit or vegetables also helps in this direction.
