Veggie Wash is for more than just your veggies!!

 I've been experimenting lately and found there's a few things you can do with veggie wash beside wash your veggies! Believe me, I know how to experiment. I used to do it all the time in the family toilet, seeing how many different kinds of cleaning solutions I could mix before it foamed over the bowl. Explains a lot though doesn't it?

You've been introduced to Veggie Wash right? Please don't tell me you haven't met? Well let me introduce you.

Oh, some of you have met. Chrissy I see he's angry at you for calling him Hippie Spit...not cool.

Alright back on track. So I've been experimenting lately. I found a few new things you can do with Veggie Wash. First of all what is Veggie Wash? Its an all-natural way to remove wax, soil and agricultural chemicals from produce. It's made from food derived ingredients so it's environmentally safe (that includes your body folks!)

Also, Veggie Wash gets the Good Housekeeping seal of approval; which is kind of a big deal. Have you ever seen the Good Housekeeping testing facility? Amazing!

Now that you know what Veggie Wash is, here's what you can do with it!

1. Clean your citrus fruit for zesting. Have you ever had a recipe that calls for Lemon or lime peel or zest? I use zest in a lot of my recipes, but I always hated the thought of all the chemicals on the surface of the fruit peel being scraped into my meal. Gross. Veggie Wash will clean all of this right off, leaving you with the peace of mind that you won't grow a third arm from lime-marinaded chicken!

2. Wash the garlic stink off your hands. Look, my last name is Italian (Not that I am. I'm more of a Swiss Miss!) Anyway my husband and children love Italian food ladened with tons of garlic, and what the heck so do I! But if you've ever handled garlic you know that smell. The one that follows you to bed even after you've scrubbed and showered. I've read that a little bit of lemon juice will rid you of the smell, so one day, in a bind, I tried a little of my Veggie Wash on my stinky hands. Amazingly the smell was gone! Veggie Wash is really raking up the points here!!

3. Clean out your microwave. You know you've done it. You forgot to cover the plate of spaghetti with a paper towel and the sauce spits all over the inside of the microwave. You're in a hurry so you rush away multi-tasking your brains out only to forget the mess and give it ample time to crust on to the microwave's interior. Next time you open the door...SURPRISE!!! A big mess. Normally you'd take a wash cloth or some kind of spray cleaner and clean it out right? But have you ever thought about that chemical residue cooking into your food after you've rinsed it off and you turn the microwave on? Yucky! Or maybe you've tried the lemon and water trick when you put a lemon in water and heat up the microwave allowing the lemon steam to loosen the food debris. Hey it works and it's safe, but I'd rather be shoving that lemon into a chicken's body cavity and cooking it for a hour and a half at 425 degrees! So if you're like me and you want safe and clean, next time use a little Veggie Wash! Don't worry it's safe! They tell you on their website to use it on counter tops and other surfaces. It really works and leaves the microwave smelling citrusy fresh! Here's a demo below (sorry I can't link the wonderful smell!)

Spray right on to the mess.

Add a small dish of water for humility.

I set my time to 25 seconds. 


Ahhh! That's much better.
