Most importantly, don't wash all your produce when you come home from the store. If you must wash it, do it immediately before use. Wet produce goes bad quicker, and increases the risk of bacterial and mold growth, these things like moisture, which could make you sick. But the reality of it is, washing your produce will not lower your chance of food poisoning, nor will it wash away any significant amount of pesticides.
