Use Solay Simple Fruit & Veggie Wash to Rinse Away Pesticides on Produce

This week I wrote about the highly disturbing recent finding that pesticide consumption is linked to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. Click here to read the article in its entirety.

One of the researchers in the study recommends vigorously washing, scrubbing and peeling all fruits and vegetables that are not grown organically -- and of course, buying organic produce whenever possible. Click here for a downloadable guide of the 'Dirty Dozen,' which highlights the fruits and veggies that should always be purchased as organic!

Which brings me to Solay Simple Fruit & Veggie Wash. Instead of just rinsing produce (even the organic variety) with water, get it squeaky clean and ready for serving with this wash. It's all natural cleaning agents will scrub away contaminants, chemicals wax, pesticides and soil.

Ingredients in the Solay Simple Fruit & Veggie Wash: Purified water, coconut derived surfactant, citric acid (derived from citrus fruits), Himalayan salt.

It is 100% free of petroleum based or other hazardous ingredients, SLS, fragrances, phosphates, animal byproducts, dyes and other common triggers for respiratory or skin irritations.

I've tested Earth Friendly Products veggie wash and also some other eco brand (can't remember the name). I like them, I mean they seem to work BUT my big issue with these cleaners are that I can't actually tell if the produce is cleaner. It's not like I whip out my science kit, swab the produce for bacteria/chemicals/etc before and after to see how clean it is. It's really hard to say if these are worth the cost over plain ol' water.

That said, it's good to hear about one made by a small woman owned company.
