Yes,I do wash fruits before eating them because their skin have wax especially the shiny fruits. They are not good for health. We have to wash them properly before eating.

Yes, me too. But my mum likes to peel the skin off while I like to have their skin together.

I only wash them with water, I know there's something outthere we could buy to wash the fruits, I don't buy it because I don't think the chemical can make the fruits more better ^.^ I like to have skin together with the fruits, sometimes I just clean it with tissue, rub it for very long, hope that I can clean it more besides I wash it in water.

I always wash fruits before eating them, even the ones like bananas. Mangoes I also wash before slicing them. I love fruit. Cheers!!

yes i do wash fruits before eating them because these days people use too many pesticides on the fruits and i wouldn't want to unknowingly eat pesticides. Also there are germs on the unwashed fruits and to remove them washing is necessary

Yes, surely, because I eat many fruits with their skin, which contains many fibers and vitamins. So, I prefer to wash them to avoid the risk of eating pesticides or similar toxic substances.

It really depends on what type of fruits you are referring to. For fruits such as apples and pears, I will definitely wash them before I eat them as I can never be sure whether the outer surface of the fruit is clean or otherwise (I normally eat the skins of such fruits too) and there might be residues of pesticides etc. On the other hand, I don't wash peel-and-eat fruits such as bananas and Mandarin oranges because I am quite assured of the cleanliness of them as I only eat the interior of the fruit. Besides, it wouldn't make much sense to wash fruits such as those, isn't it?

Ya every body washes fruits before they eat i guess. Because even if it is clean dust and small germs will be always there on fruits. So with out washing if we are eating those kind of fruits for sure it will harm our stomach,or it will make some viral infection. So that people wash it cleanly before having it.
