Here's how to properly wash vegetables for each type of vegetable – You need to know:

2.1 How to wash leafy vegetables

This is a vegetable with a higher risk of carrying pathogens than fruits, bulbs and flowers. Because leafy vegetables contain more E. Coli and Salmonella bacteria from irrigating chemical fertilizers directly on the leaves. To wash leafy vegetables, you need to pick them up and then soak them in clean water for about 10 minutes to remove dirt from the vegetables. Then, wash each vegetable leaf directly under clean running water and soak in diluted salt for about 5 minutes. Finally, rinse the vegetables with clean water to remove excess water remaining on the vegetables.

Spices such as cilantro, dill, onions ... or herbs eaten raw also belong to leafy vegetables. Therefore, you also need to rinse with salt water before using.

2.2 Root vegetables

Some root vegetables are often used by Vietnamese families such as carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, ... This is the safest group of root vegetables because the tubers are located in the ground. For root vegetables, you just need to rinse with water to remove the soil from the tubers. Then peel and rinse with clean water again and you're done.

Flowering vegetables are considered the most hygienic vegetables. Because the flowers are high up and very sensitive to pesticides and fertilizers. Therefore, flowering vegetables are quite safe that you can buy. Before processing, you need to pick up the flower part. Then soak in dilute salt water for about 5 minutes. Finally, rinse thoroughly with clean water.

2.4 How to wash fruit and vegetable

Popular fruit vegetables such as cucumber, pumpkin, zucchini, gourd, tomato, ... will be less susceptible to bacterial contamination than leafy vegetables. However, fruit vegetables often contain large amounts of pesticides and pesticides if growers harvest early, and the excess of drugs on the fruit has not been exhausted.

So, before using, wash and wrap a plastic bag and refrigerate for about 2-3 days. The purpose is to keep the fruit clean and have time to consume the remaining excess medicine. If you use it immediately, it should be soaked in dilute salt for about 5 minutes and then rinsed thoroughly under clean running water. A small note is that you do not soak salt before storing it in the refrigerator. Because it will cause the fruit to spoil faster.
