I submitted this recipe. Allrecipes omitted my warning not to use this recipe on soft-fleshed fruits like strawberries or raspberries. The wash will "burn" these fragile fruits. Best if used on fruits that have a "skin" like apples and blueberries. Read More

Gotta wash those veggies! This was simple to make but the instructions don't say to shake it before you use it - the soda isn't dissolving completely. Also it does foam so I made it in a bowl stirred then put into the spray bottle. It doesn't say to leave it on the counter or put it in the fridge - I put it in the fridge to be on the safe side.
