WASH DAY

WHAT NEEDS RINS­ING AND WHY

Best Health - - NUTRITION NEWS -

Rinse un­washed greens in a colan­der un­der cold wa­ter. There’s no need to re­wash pre­washed greens.

Rinse pro­duce un­der run­ning wa­ter for 30 to 60 sec­onds and give it a rub – there’s no need for soaking.

Wash foods with non-ed­i­ble rinds such as mel­ons and or­anges be­fore you cut them be­cause ex­ter­nal bac­te­ria can trans­fer in­side.

Wipe mush­rooms with a damp cloth and pat them dry with a towel.

Use a scrub brush for hard foods, such as car­rots and pota­toes. And don’t for­get to clean the brush, too.

Use wa­ter alone – it’s just as ef­fec­tive as dish soap and veg­etable wash for elim­i­nat­ing pes­ti­cide residues.
