Why You Need to Wash Your Produce

Why You Need to Wash Your Produce

A new week means a new round of grocery shopping and meal prepping. However, you will want to make sure you’re not skipping one crucial step. Washing your fruits and vegetables is very important to make sure your produce is completely clean and ready to eat.

While most people think of meat as the main carrier for foodborne illnesses, it seems the latest rash of outbreaks have been tied to our fruits & veggies. So, once you have purchased your produce you will want to make sure you are prepping and storing your food properly.

To thoroughly remove wax, debris, dirt and residue, we recommend utilizing Arm & Hammer Fruit & Vegetable Wash. This spray is also the first food touching product to be Safer Choice certified by the EPA. 

Spray your fruits and vegetables with the wash and then gently scrub with a soft-bristled brush. We like this OXO one with a non-slip grip. Arm & Hammer harnesses the cleaning power of pure and simple ingredients such as baking soda and plant-derived cleaning agents so you can make sure your food is squeaky clean.

Whether you’re preparing greens for salads or scrubbing dirt off potatoes you will want to make sure you have Arm & Hammer Fruit & Vegetable wash under your sink!
