Reduce pesticide of produce using Safeguard fruit & veggie wash

Investing wholly on organic food is not a viable option to many. We normally try to avoid the dirty dozen (12 food and vegetables most contaminated with pesticide). But when we can’t, we found a potential solution to it: Safeguard Fruit & Veggie Wash.

Safeguard veggie wash is made from organic aloe vera, citrus essential oil, olive leaf extract, emulsifier from fruit and berries, glycerine from vegetable sources and purified water.

Having a small collection of essential oil for homemade spa and aromatherapy purpose, we do think that this bottle of wash smells of tangy orange oil!

Most fruits and veggies have been sprayed with chemicals. Some are waxed to improve appearance and shelf life (try to scrap the skin of inorganic apple with a knife).

These contaminants have adverse effect on our body. Unfortunately, washing fruits and veggies in water is not enough to remove them.

Safeguard claims that it’s up to 100 times more effective than washing with water alone. It safely remove bacteria, dirt, waxes, chemical and pesticide residue.

We’ve first stumbled upon it next to the counter where fruits and vegetables are weight at JUSCO. We’ve also seen it in other supermarkets like TESCO and Cold Storage.
