Survey: How do you wash your leafy vegetables?

Chemicalkinetics | Jan 9, 2013 10:04 PM

As the title states, I am curious how you wash leafy vegetables before cooking.

I used to say that I wash my vegetables, but the more I think about it, the more I realize that I actually rinse my vegetables. This is especially so for leafy vegetables. Occasionally, I peeled apart the leafy vegetables and washed one leaf at a time by rubbing the leaves against my thumb and fingers. More often that not, I soaked them in water, swirled them around, and drained. Sometime I repeat this process.

So what do you *usually* do?

A) Wash vegetable via contact by hand or by brush (direct contact)
B) Rinse vegetable by running water or soaking water (indirect contact)
C) Not wash (trust vegetables being clean)

Thank you.
