Clean Your Fruits | DIY Natural Fruit + Veggie Cleaner


*Update to this post found here!

My friend Kristine shared her fruit cleansing recipe recently and once I tried it, I was hooked! Mostly because the addition of citrus essential oil just adds a BURST of summery flavor to whatever fruit I'm cleaning.

I know Kristine had measurements, but I kind of suck at measuring stuff. So here's what I do:

  • fill my mama's giant sliver bowl with fruit

  • just barely cover with water

  • pour in a bit more than a splash of white vinegar (or ACV)

  • add 2-3 drops of any citrus oil (lemon, orange, grapefruit, whatever is handy)

  • swirl

  • let sit for about 5 minutes

  • swirl again

  • rinse

  • enjoy

Even though you'll rinse the fruit, there's just a tiny hint of the citrus oil. Tiny. Hint. It's amazing and my favorite way to enjoy fresh fruit! The kids love the taste!
