My hubby was thoroughly disgusted when he saw me put a drop of dish soap in the strawberries to soak them. I try to buy organic foods when I can, but with rising prices it gets hard to purchase products that do not contain pesticides. And for the record, my organic apples seem to still have a waxy coating which totally puts me off – because the reason I buy organic in the first place is so that nothing is added to my produce!
I heard about certain food washes but I wasn’t sure what made them different from regular soap. Now, don’t get me wrong – the soap method grosses me out a bit too, but I always make sure to use soap that washes clean and does not have any moisturizers in them that may cling to the fruit. I had the opportunity to try out MyClyns Food Wash and the first thing I did was check out the ingredients to see what made this different. MyClyns uses natural ingredients that are food based- so you don’t have to worry about ingesting suds and the horrible side effects if you don’t rinse well.
The first thing I tried MyClyns Food Wash on was apples. This popular fruit is notorious for being coated with wax to make them look shiny. If you get the conventional apples, not only do you have pesticides, but the wax coating will actually keep the pesticides protected from water and guess what – you end up eating it! I sprayed my sticky apple twice with MyClyns, rubbed the solution around and then rinsed it off. ALL the wax was gone and I wasn’t able to feel any residue left over. I tried it out on strawberries too but placing them in a large bowl, spray about 5 times, and then soaking in water. MyClyns can be used on all food, including meat – although I have not tried that yet.
