That'll sure be effective against E. coli.
That stuff has been out for years. You can also get a specilized bowl to through the "cleaner" in along with your veggies.
"Washing things? As in, with soap? Uh, HELLOOOO? It's called WATER, people!"
*looks around and wonders why no one is applauding*
wow - 5$ for a jug of water and ethyl alcohol - why didn't I think of that...
I liked America better when they just sold us products that made us feel paranoid about being fat.
Have friends in China that use this stuff (not the brand probably)... Seems like a good idea for them.
Only at QFC. That store is to grocery shopping what SNL is to comedy.
the stuff's been sold overseas for years ( i encountered it in nairobi, kenya in 2000) where washing with tap water is risky because the tap water also contains pathogens that water alone can't take care of. soapy water can leave aftertaste because most soft soaps in the us contain perfume.so it's not really a scam. i imagine there are some places in the us where drinking plain tap water is very risky.. just maybe not in the areas in metropolitan king county.
This has been around forever. I got a free mini sample bottle maybe 2-3 years ago and it has sat unused under my kitchen sink since then. It's just not practical. You have to get a bowl out, put this stuff in it, fill it with water, wash the veggies, then rinse.
Rinsing under the faucet takes about 5 seconds.
Kevin Richards is awesome.
this is a tad less worse than Lysol who is actively trying to convince mothers everywhere that germs are constantly conspiring to kill their loved ones. I fucking hate those ads.
I'd wash my vegetables more, but the spin cycle bruises my yams.
Lindy, you're the swellest.
Not only have you pointed out the "laundry detergent"-iness of that Fit stuff...but you not only referenced a very cool joke by a very cool local comic, but you properly attributed that joke...
Awesome (as is Kevin Richards, as is Paul Merrill)!
I'd make out with you based on this post. Just sayin'.
I actually use this stuff. It comes in little spray bottles and is really easy to use. You just spray it on and then rinse off. It works better than plain water because it gets the pesticide residue off.
Found this on the internet and thought that it was interesting...
Produce wash kills bacteria on food
Published: June 26, 2008 at 2:34 PM
PULLMAN, Wash., June 26 (UPI) -- A fruit and vegetable wash, when used in food-manufacturing, can decrease food pathogens in produce-processing wash water, U.S. researchers said.
Researchers at the University of Idaho and Washington State University said the product sold commercially as FIT Fruit and Vegetable Wash, not only proved much more effective than the commonly used chlorine dioxide, but is made from ingredients like citric acid and distilled grapefruit oil that are generally regarded as safe.
Chlorine dioxide, used in food plants, can put workers at risk, when compromised by soils and plant debris in the wash water. In the study, chlorine dioxide killed 90 percent of the target organisms in the food plant and follow-up laboratory studies. By contrast, FIT killed 99.999 percent, said food scientist Dong-Hyun Kang of Washington State University.
"If you had a million bacteria, you would have one left," Kang said.
The research -- unusual because part of it was conducted under real-world conditions in an Idaho fresh pack potato operation -- is published online ahead of print in the Journal of Food Science in August.
