How Clean is the Produce You Eat & Prepare for Your Family?

So you ask, what's the deal with white vinegar and why is it such a beneficial cleansing tool?  White vinegar is most acidic among the various types of vinegar, making it an efficient cleansing agent.  Due to its potent acidity, white vinegar can clean the most difficult build ups, including counter-tops (excluding natural & unsealed granite/marble stones), mirrors, wood, and even stubborn red wine and grass stained clothing!  Not to mention, if you have a rebellious fur baby this holistic solution can rid urine stains and smells, while keeping our four legged friends from returning.

Most of us rely on farmers markets and grocery stores to supply our produce, yet have you ever wondered how clean your fruits and vegetables may truly be?  You may put your trust into organic produce, although organic doesn't always mean cleaner.  Among harvesting and arriving at your home, fruits and vegetables are highly susceptible to a rough and unsanitary journey.  Seeing as though much produce is porous, white vinegar is safest to use for cleansing.  Often chemicals can seep into the pores of fruits and vegetables, meaning harsh residues will be consumed if using a chemical cleaning solution.  Rather than adding to the already present potential toxic chemicals, vegetable wash can definitely reduce and eliminate pesticides in addition to dirt and bacteria.
