I used to wash fruit in water (especially if I was worried about germs from store handling etc.). If I was going to cook I thought the heat would kill germs. But I’ve recently heard that water is not enough. Pesticides etc. need a 10% salt solution. How do other people wash fruit/veg? And do you do it as soon as you get home before putting in storage/fridge, if so do you just leave to dry on counter top for 24 hours so as not to encourage mould?
