Homemade Fruit and Veggie Wash

Posted By Amy Norton On September 13, 2011 @ 10:03 pm In Frugal Living | 11 Comments

As you know, frugal cleaners [1] are a must in our home. I love using ones that include simple ingredients that are usually found in the contents of our pantry [2].

We consume lots of fresh fruits and veggies [3], and I am thrilled to share the homemade spray wash we use to clean our produce! It is important to remove the dirt and bacteria from your produce, and plain ole’ water just won’t cut it.

In a pinch and have no lemons? Simply spray produce with 1 part water and 1 part vinegar.

This is so much cheaper (and greener!) than the natural spray [4] you can find at a store. Comparatively, one bottle of homemade cleaner can cost around $0.25… total, depending on the price of the lemon!

Now you have another easy, non-toxic, frugal wash to add to your homemade cleaning arsenal.
