  1. I soak all my fruits and vegetables and parsley and cilantro in vinegar water for 10 minutes, then dry them with a paper towel and store in the fridge.
    Once dry, but not limp, I wrap the parsley and cilantro separately in damp paper towels, place them in plastic bags , then seal and store them in the fridge. They last for a couple of weeks!

  2. Great recipe thank you! I need to get a salad spinner. I can remember people saying not to wash mushrooms because they would absorb the water. Ugh!

    • You’re so welcome! I remember the first time I washed mushrooms. I didn’t know any better and washed them before putting them in the fridge. It was a sight. LOL. Salad spinners are amazing. Once you use it, you’ll be wondering how you survived so long without one.

  3. Thanks, Stacey! I’ve been just rinsing my vegetables (I hadn’t thought of all the stuff that could be on them 😬) I’m making a batch of your cleaner today.

    • Although studies have shown washing (not rinsing) your produce off with water is effective to a degree, water alone isn’t going to remove the residule pesticides. I buy mostly organic produce but I still wash everything off because I’m afraid they’re may be rementants of bug turd on it. LOL. Hey…I’m a safety girl.
