Experts found out how to wash fruit

Representatives of science from the US came to the conclusion that apples are best washed with a solution of baking soda
Representatives of science from the US came to the conclusion that apples are best washed with a solution of baking soda. In this way, not only pollution, but also chemical substances for controlling pests and weeds-pesticides-can be removed from them. 

These substances are often used for agricultural purposes, because with their help, the harvest increases. At the same time, they have a bad effect on human health. 

Some fruit suppliers wash them with water, but this is not enough to completely eliminate traces of pesticides . 

The researchers decided to find out which method of processing apples would save them from the most widely used substances - phosphate and thiabendazole .

The organizers of the experiment subjected the apples to pesticides for 24 hours, and after that they decided to get rid of the chemical compounds in three ways - wash the fruit with water from the tap, wash them with 1% soda solution and wash the substances with bleach. 

It turned out that the most optimal effect was given by a solution of soda - in 12-15 minutes it eliminated 96% of phosphate and 80% of thiabendazole. 

It was not possible to get rid of pesticides completely, as they were deeply embedded in the apple peel. Of course, the skin before use can be cut, but in this case the fruit will lose some useful elements.
