    A couple of weeks ago, we brought you a homemade veggie wash that I believe is terribly important for washing all of your fruits and vegetables, even the organic.  It’s inexpensive as well as very, very easy to prepare.

    While, I personally use this wash on every fruit and vegetable that come through my kitchen, I give special attention to those called the Dirty Dozen…those fruits and vegetables that seem to be coated in the most pesticide residue.

    Below you will find the list of of produce that you need to give special consideration before serving.

    The Dirty Dozen

    1. Apples
    2. Celery
    3. Sweet bell peppers
    4. Peaches
    5. Strawberries
    6. Nectarines – imported
    7. Grapes
    8. Spinach
    9. Lettuce
    10. Cucumbers
    11. Blueberries – domestic
    12. Potatoes

    Added to the bad boy dozen this past year are green beans and kale.

    You can find this list on several websites, but today I am using the EWG’s Shopping Guide. Now…want to know the cleanest fruits and vegetables?
