FIT vegetable and fruit cleaner was introduced by Procter and Gamble in the Philippines in 1999 but lasted only until mid-2001.

Do you know you can do your homemade vegetable and fruit cleaner too?

All you need is table salt and/or baking soda.

In every liter of water dissolve 1 tablespoon of baking soda or table salt. Soak your fruits or veggies for about a minute. Rinse thoroughly with water and drain.

For potatoes and other root crops, rinse it first until some soil particles were removed. Rub directly the table salt into it then rinse thoroughly. The table salt will serve as scrubbers to further remove the dirt.

Both baking soda and table salt will act not only as cleaning tool but antibacterial agent in washing your veggies and fruits. Furthermore, you don't need to worry about the chemicals since salt and baking soda are edible.

Do you have any homemade idea for fruit and vegetable cleaner?
