How to clean strawberries

1. First of all, wash the strawberry with running water for several minutes to remove most of the pathogens, pesticides and other pollutants on the surface. Note: do not immerse in the water first, so as not to dissolve the pesticide in the water and then be absorbed by strawberry, and penetrate into the inside of the fruit.

2. Soak strawberries in the rice washing water (the first rice washing water should be used) and the light salt water (half spoon salt in one basin of water) for 3 minutes. Their functions are different. The alkaline rice washing water can decompose pesticides; the light salt water can make the insects and eggs attached to the surface of strawberries float, which is easy to be washed away by water, and has a certain disinfection effect.

3. Then wash the rice washing water, light salt water and possible residual harmful substances with flowing tap water. Rinse with clean water (or cold boiled water) once.

In addition, we need to remind you not to remove the strawberry stalk before washing, so as not to let pesticides and pollutants penetrate into the fruit through the 'wound' during the soaking process, but cause pollution.
