most of fruits and vegetables have pesticide residue, even if we use detergent to wash them , it doesn't mean it's clean.there is a way , everytime you wash rice, just keep the wash water.using the wash water to wash fruits and vegetables. because the water is alkaline, the pesticide is acidic, mix them together can easily remove the toxic chemicals. so what do you think? is there anybody know other methods?

Unfortunately there is residual pesticide all around us including a residue on fruits and vegetables. I think your idea of using dirty rice water is rather simplistic and I have no idea where you heard this idea. I tend to dismiss it as a myth. I suppose you could always peel your produce, but a lot of the nutrient is in the skin, so you are sometimes throwing away the best part. I guess the only way around this is to buy organic or grow it yourself. People today are growing up with chemicals in their bodies in residual amounts at that a hundred years ago nobody had because the chemicals were not even invented yet. It seems like one big experiment.

I buy organic fruits and vegetables, that way i know that i am not getting any of the pesticides or any of the other chemicals that they put on them to keep them fresher longer.
