181. A little tip on veggie washing.
Edited on Sun Feb-01-09 08:56 PM by madeline_con
A 1/2 cap of bleach in a sink full of water kills any nasty stuff. We used to do it to locally grown stuff when we were living overseas.

If you add a pinch of baking soda to the water also, you have the same concoction as that expensive "FIT" stuff they sell as a produce wash. You wouldn't believe the dirt you can get off grapes and strawberries with it!
