When asked what kind of dessert I want for my birthday, my response is fruit salad. I love fruit and veggies. Not only do I love them but more importantly, my daughter does. When I ask her what she wants for a treat her most common response is “carrots please” I am one lucky mom. Because our family enjoys fruits and vegetables so much it’s important that they are as pesticide free as possible.

Have you heard of the dirt dozen? According to the EWG the dirty dozen is the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables. When you eat the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, you’ll be exposed to an average of 10 pesticides a day. 7 are fruit (peaches, strawberries, apples, domestic blueberries, nectarines, cherries, and imported grapes) and 5 are vegetables (celery, sweet bell peppers, spinach, kale, collard greens and potatoes).

What’s the big deal? It’s been reported that different pesticides have been linked to a variety of health problems, including but not limited to:

Nervous system toxicity


Hormone system effects

Skin, eye and lung irritation

According to Eat Cleaner, an all-natural, tasteless, odorless, food wash/wipe they can remove those nasty pesticides and more. The Eat Cleaner can be used on produce, seafood and poultry. Eat Cleaner not only claims to clean those dirty dozen but the product helps inhibit food browning while prolonging the shelf life of fresh produce.
