Natural Plant Based Fruit and Vegetable Cleaner Removes Harmful Residue & Bacteria
What is it?
This plant based spray will help remove pesticides, along with dirt, bacteria, or wax. Water alone is not enough.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are essential to a healthy diet. Unfortunately, modern growing techniques often leave a residue of water-resistant insecticides and chemical fertilizers on the surface of your food. Waxes are sometimes applied to enhance appearance, and then there is human handling that may cause germs to reside on your produce and vegetables. Even organically grown produce may be affected by wind-born contaminants or handling.

Tomatoes, apples and grapes are examples of smooth-skinned produce.
