How to wash fruits and vegetables correctly
It’s not difficult to wash fruits, but there are few fruits washed in the right way. It introduces the cleaning of peaches, grapes, apples, Bayberry and strawberries.
Peach cleaning method: first wet with water, then rub the peach surface with salt, soak it in water for a while, and finally wash it with clean water. Or put a little salt in the water, directly soak the peaches in the water, and then gently scrub them with your hands, and the peach hairs will fall off.
Grape method: put the grapes in water, and then put two spoonfuls of flour. Don’t knead them hard. Just toss them back and forth, and then wash them in water. Those dirty things will stick to the flour.
Many people eat apples with their skins, but the pesticides and chemicals left on the surface of apples are harmful to human body. Apple cleaning is very simple, just like peaches. After the apples are wet, put a little salt on the skin, gently rub them back and forth with both hands, and then rinse them with water
