Non-Toxic Produce Cleaner (Veggie Wash)

I am a vegetable and fruit addict. My produce bin is typically full of apples, strawberries, grapefruits, carrots, broccoli…you name it, I like to eat it. Along with the bounty from my garden, I almost need a bigger fridge. (Hint, hint, Biceps).

I needed a solution to get the wax and germs off of store-bought produce and the dirt off of my garden produce. However, I didn’t want to pay the $5 for the “Veggie Wash” and I didn’t like the list of ingredients I found on most of the bottles.

Time to make my very own Non-Toxic Produce Cleaner.


Here is all that you’ll need to make your very own Non-Toxic Produce Cleaner:

1 TBS Lemon Juice
6 TBS White Vinegar
2 1/2-3 Cups of Water
Spray Bottle


Using a funnel, measure out the 1 TBS of Lemon Juice and add to the spray bottle.


Next, add the 6 TBS of White Vinegar.


Finally, fill the bottle to the top with the water.


You can store your Non-Toxic Produce Spray under the sink or in the fridge (if you are nervous about the lemon juice). With the vinegar acting as a sort of preservative, I’ve found that it’s not really necessary.

I hope you have enjoyed my Non-Toxic recipes! It may seem overwhelming at first to rid your home of toxins and store-bought everything. And maybe you don’t want to make these products, but would like the benefits of non-toxic products in your home without going broke. I have found some simple solutions to replace the things that I cannot make/don’t want to make myself by purchasing them from a non-toxic green company online. Without directly endorsing them, if you are interested in knowing more,  Feel free to email me with questions.

    Oh my gosh, I’ve never seen ‘veggie wash’ for sale in the shops here – I wonder if it’s reached Australia yet! How funny! Great idea to have a bottle of your own stuff made up though – super simple – I love it!

    I wonder if this would be good for cleaning the dishes with too! This looks great for cleaning veg. I also use bicarbonate of soda with a little water to clean veg sometimes!
