We all like for our food to be cleaned before it’s prepared. Factories and farms s breeding grounds for dirt. After bringing your groceries home, it’s essential to store them in clean areas. If you’ve bought produce, wash them before eating them. Many of us will rinse them under the faucet for a few minutes to ensure dirt is removed. But did you know there’s a method to ensure you remove more dirt? 

In a TikTok video by content creator @marcelaveronica_, she shares her hack for washing produce with us. It’s a simple but exciting way to remove more residue. We were pleasantly surprised to see what she did. Apparently, rinsing it with water doesn't really help at all.

We’ll be adding some baking soda to our produce water from now on. That’s a fantastic hack to make sure your produce is really clean. It never hurts to be efficient when washing fruits and veggies. Let’s see how the TikTok community responded to this easy and inexpensive hack.
