I am interested in making my own vegetable wash. The organic isle at my grocery store sucks and the farmers market is over a hour a way. I try to make it out there, but some weeks it's not possible. That and I want to have a good wash for all my vegetables regardless of whether or not they are organic.
I thought about buying it at the store, but then wondered if something not good could be in a company's recipe.
I looked at a few recipes online. The simplest only called for vinegar and water. One that was a little more complex had those first two ingredients as well as lemon juice. Then another added baking soda. Finally, one added grapefruit seed.
Does anyone have any experience with making vegetable wash? If so do you know which of the ingredients are absolutely necessary? Will the vinegar leave an after taste?
Maybe the lemon juice offsets the vinegar somewhat? I doubt it would leave too much of an aftertaste if you rinsed it though. I've never done this either, like Jackie just try to thoroughly wash under running water, so I'd be interested to hear how you do with it.
