Our expert says:
Generally speaking it is sufficient to rinse fruit and vegetables under clean running water to remove visible dirt and most contaminants. If you live in an area that has health problems (e.g. cholera) you may need to make a diluted solution of Milton or Jik (1 t per 5 litres) and soak your fruit or vegies for about 10 min to kill bacteria. Use a clean nail brush to scrub off visible dirt.
