Making our own cleaners has been a big step for us. They are usually safer, cheaper, and use less packaging.

Fruit and Veggie Wash
I have been looking for a better way to clean my produce lately. Since we have to buy a lot of our produce from the store in the winter it is really important to get them as clean as possible. I remember my grandma cleaning her produce with vinegar and when I did a little research I found this page which claims that if you spray hydrogen peroxide (the household kind, it will say 3% on the back) and then vinegar it is ten times more effective than vinegar by itself. I just want to say that you should never mix these two in the same bottle as it is very dangerouse. I bought two new spray bottles to keep these in so I can have them out to use when I need them. Just spray one then the other and rinse under water.
