"Dirty Dozen, Clean Fifteen"

 For your conventional vegetables supply, make sure to pre-wash them with this homemade, but effective recipe:

Vinegar and Water Vegetable Wash

*Combine equal amounts of vinegar and water and transfer in a
clean spray bottle

For hard-skinned vegetables / fruits
Spray the wash on the produce and rub gently before rinsing

For soft-skinned vegetables / fruits
Soak the produce on the wash for two minutes then rinse thoroughly

Here is an infographic that you can print out and stick on the door of your fridge to keep you reminded of the dirty dozen and the clean fifteen. For the fruits and vegetables under the dirty dozen list, we strongly recommend that you only buy organic produce.
