Veggie Wash

Even though we grow everything without chemicals I still wanted a wash to rinse off the veggies when we bring them in because they are grown amidst bugs and we do use natural sprays.  We also bring home produce we can't grow from the store and this food needs something better than a rinse under water.  The following recipe uses all household items and I feel like it is better than rinsing with just water and is safe to use.  The vinegar and lemon provide high acid levels to clean away germs and I am assuming the baking soda aids in cleaning due to it's fizzing reaction to vinegar.

1 cup vinegar
1 cup water
2TBS lemon
2 TBS Baking Soda
