I use the white vinegar in a spray bottle method. Works really well!

I just buy the Fruit and Vegetable wash at HEB, it's about $4 and lasts me about half a year. Never thought of it as expensive since it lasts so long and does a great job at cleaning off all the residue from produce. I really like it.

Thanks! Didn't know about the application as a fruit and veggie wash. I used to use an ammonia/water solution to replace all-purpose cleaner and glass cleaner until someone told me that ammonia is bad for the environment and, of course, shouldn't be ingested. I prep food all the time on my kitchen counters. They suggested a vinegar solution, and it works great! I'll start using that for produce, too, now.

I can't afford those expensive store-bought fruit and veggie washes so I did some looking and found this homemade wash that is cheap to make and effective. Thought some of you might be interested in having this info

Want to use a fruit and vegetable wash, but scared off by the price? Here's how to make your own at a fraction of the price:

What You Need:
White vinegar
A spray bottle

What You Do:

For Hard-skinned Fruits and Vegetables:

1. Fill a spray bottle with equal parts white vinegar and water.

2. Then, spray the solution onto your fruits and vegetables; rub it in; and rinse.

For Soft-skinned Fruits and Vegetables:

1. Fill a bowl with equal parts white vinegar and water.

2. Then, soak your fruits and vegetables in the solution for a minute or two, and rinse.

Why This Works

The acetic acid in vinegar kills bacteria and helps to dissolve the wax and pesticide residues found on the skins of many fruits and vegetables.
Benefits of Making Your Own Fruit and Vegetable Wash

cheaper than store-bought washes
cleans more effectively than water alone

Tips and Warnings

1) Use a scrub brush to work the solution into the skin

2) Store your fruit and vegetable wash out of the reach of children

3) Always label the contents of your spray bottles

Happy eating
