Kathmandu Post cites UMaine Extension bulletin in report on washing produce

The Kathmandu Post included information from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension in the article, “Worried about pesticides? Scrub them away.” When washing leafy greens, UMaine Extension recommends a vinegar and water mixture, according to the bulletin, “Best Ways to Wash Fruits and Vegetables.” The publication also advises consumers stay away from soap or commercial food washes, finding that the store bought vegetables washes were equally effective, the article states.
