Fruit & Veggie Spray Wash:
“Canadian safety standards are some of the weakest, in part because they allow the continued use of dozens of weed, bug and fungus killers banned elsewhere.”
Martin Mittelstaedt, Environment Reporter The Globe and Mail, October 5, 2006
Most pesticides can’t be removed from produce with water alone because they are designed to be water resistant. This way, they won’t wash off in the rain. Fruit & Veggie Spray Wash was designed for easy-to-clean produce such as apples, tomatoes, and bell peppers. Our formula has no taste, is odourless, residue-free and helps remove surface pesticides, chemicals, bacteria, wax and dirt. For produce which requires soaking such as grapes, broccoli and spinach, we recommend our Fruit & Veggie Wash Concentrate.
Even organic produce should be washed. It can be exposed to everything from contaminated irrigation water to fertilizers, animal feces and human contact.
