Vinegar and water fruit wash to kill mold and extend the freshness of produce.
I bought some fresh fruit at the farmer's market last week and decided to try out this wash to see if it really makes a difference. I usually give the fruit a good rinse with water, let it dry, and then put it in the fridge. I had grapes, strawberries, and grape tomatoes. And before you even ask--I disinfected the sink prior to doing this.
I brought them home and dumped them in.
The website promised me filthy water when I was through. This is a sample of what I had. A little turbulent, solids that settled to the bottom. Nothing I would want to drink, but not really filthy either. Mostly it was those little hairs off the strawberries and little grape leaf remnants.
One thing it did do was cause me to immediately sort out any suspect items that may contribute to mold earlier--there were a few icky grapes in the bag and one strawberry was mushy on one side.
Total time: 10 minute soak, then a rinse, dry, and sort of the fruit. 20-ish minutes total
Final verdict: Seems that a good wash with water is working fine around here. Probably won't spend any time on this one again.
