fruit & veg washes/rinses

drucie | Aug 24, 2008 06:17 AM

Curious what others are using. I have been unable to find my preferred brand (Fit) lately so switched to one called Environee. I've heard of people using bleach or hydrogen peroxide and I can't see myself doing that (well, maybe peroxide, but not bleach.) What do you guys do? And are there any fruit/veg that you don't wash? My grandma always swears you're never, ever supposed to wash berries or mushrooms, but I definitely wash berries and boy, do I give mushrooms a scrub. (Her theory is that when you eat them you build up natural immunity to any little nasties growing on them...and that washing is too rough on them.)
