How to Clean Strawberries
Why is it important to clean Strawberries?
Have you ever had a close up look at your strawberries and seen creepy crawlies or speckles of dirt? Well, that’s what you can see, let alone what you can’t see. Similarly, you don’t know what happened prior to buying those strawberries. They were probably sprayed with pesticides, an animal could have urinated all over the bush, the pickers could have coughed all over the strawberries and or a little kid could have put their dirty bacteria covered hands all over everything in the shop. Gross right?! That’s okay though because we’re going to show you the how to clean strawberries step by step.
So this is step by step on how to clean your Strawberries;
Washing strawberries in water alone can be ineffective in removing contaminants like bacteria, dirt, chemicals, agricultural waste and waxes which are waterproof. The ECOS Fruit and Veggie Wash is formulated to safely remove surface residue and contaminants.
Fill up the kitchen sink or bowl (your choice) with cold water and add a directional amount of ECOS Fruit and Veggie Wash to the water.
Add strawberries and let soak for 10 minutes
Rinse strawberries with water and sit them in a container in the fridge or feel free to eat them straight away.
Eat and enjoy!!

If you want to get fancy you can use a Portable Ultrasonic Washing Cleaner in replacement of your fruit and veggie wash. This is a more sustainable option to clean strawberries and you don’t need to keep restocking up on wash cleaner every now and again.
