2. Soak vegetables and fruit to remove bacteria
We all know a simple rinse under running tap water doesn't do much to actually clean our vegetables. So, swap out the running rinse for a hydrogen peroxide soak. Make your own by adding just 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide to a sink full of cold water. Insider's Tip: produce that is hyper-absorbent, like mushrooms, shouldn't be submerged in any form of liquid. Rather, use a cloth damp with the hydrogen peroxide and water solution above to gently wipe the dirt away.
