There are a lot of nasties on your fresh food. Do you know what goes into the fertilizer that your carrot sticks grew in? In the best case scenario … well … maybe I won’t get graphic.
To help kill bacteria such as E. Coli on fruits and vegetables, add a 1/4 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a sink full of cold water. Immerse, rinse with cold water and drain. Killing these bacteria will help keep your fruits and vegetables fresher for longer. Alternatively you can also use a spray bottle containing equal parts 3% hydrogen peroxide and water – just spray and rinse!
