Wash Fruits and Veggies with Water

Kristy sent me this link on washing fruits and vegetables. It's a short one page article and worth a click. To summarize the article, wash fruits and veggies with water. Don't use soap. Soap washes on, but (on some foods) it doesn't wash off. Adding bleach to your water to wash your veggies is unnecessary. Wash everything, even if you are not going to eat the outside. When you cut into a melon (for example), if it did have some kind of bacteria or something on the rind, cutting it with a knife could drag the bacteria into the inside of the melon. Do use a scrub brush to wash your fruits and veggies.
