Dr. Oz offered this recipe on his Dr. Oz Show for a Homemade Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash as a natural option to help remove the pesticides from our fruits and vegetables. Dr. Oz also advises choosing organics fruits and vegetables as a safe and healthy alternative.
Dr. Oz says that the vinegar in this spray has natural anti-bacterial properties. The lemon juice is a natural astringent. The solution works to both breakdown and clean off pesticides.
1 cup water
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tbsp baking soda
1/2 of a lemon
Combine all ingredients in a large container. Transfer to a spray bottle with a pump. Spray mixture on produce and let sit for 5 minutes. Scrub and rinse.
