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 ...

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...

just what I was looking for..Thank you!

Very easy to make and works great.
