Pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables can be removed in five different ways.

More soaking water washing method for cabbage, spinach, and other leafy vegetables. Generally, rinse off the surface dirt with water first, then soak in water for 20 to 30 minutes, soak and then rinse with running water two or three times, adding fruit and vegetable detergent if necessary.

More than the use of alkaline water soakingwater testing tds meter washing method for tomatoes, plums, and other directly edible fruits and vegetables. Rinse the surface dirt with water first, then soak in baking soda for 15 minutes (generally 500 ml of water with 5 to 10 grams of baking soda), and then rinse with water. According to the survey, China's pesticide use is primarily organophosphorus. Organophosphorus pesticides will rapidly decompose and fail in an alkaline environment, so soaking in alkaline water is an effective way to remove pesticide residues.

More brine cleaning method for cabbage, onions, and other tight vegetables. In general, soak vegetables in light brine for 10 minutes. It is best to split the vegetables into pieces so that each side is fully exposed to brine, which can remove some pesticide residues and the roots or leaves of small insects.

More rice water soaking cleaning method for spraying carbamates and other alkaline pesticides on vegetables. Generally, rice water is acidic, and residual alkaline pesticides that come into contact with acidic rice water will slowly decompose and fail.

More peeling method for loofah, apples, and other fruits and melons. Peeling is a simple and effective method for removing pesticide residues. By peeling, residual pesticides and parasitic eggs can be completely removed from fruits and melons.
