There are several products that can be found anywhere veggies are sold. One of these is called Microdyn as seen in the picture above.

Microdyn comes in different sizes and can be recognized by its dark blue bottle with a white or snazzy gold lid. It’s really easy to use just follow the directions on the label!

An alternate natural method is Apple Cider Vinegar. Simply dilute 4 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar to a gallon of water or 1Tbsp per cup of water and soak your vegetables for five minutes. While soaking, stir frequently. Agitation is the key to removing dirt and bacteria. Finally, drain and air dry those veggies completely before storing.

Additionally, to save time, clean your fruits and vegetables as soon as you return from shopping so they are ready to use. If you have a lot of produce you can do this right in the kitchen sink.

Also, our world famous Mexican limes have natural anti-bacterial agents. When you drink your margarita or dive into that delicious Taco, give them both an extra squeeze of lime!
