Use Colloidal Silver to Wash and Disinfect Produce
When you can’t grow your own fruits and veggies, protect yourself from potentially harmful pathogens by cleansing your produce in a colloidal silver fruit and vegetable wash.
Use a solution of at least 5 to 10 ppm.
Combine the following:
1 cup of water
½ cup of vinegar
2 tsp. salt (dissolve completely)
¼ to ½ cup homemade colloidal silver
You can soak your fruits and vegetables in this solution or you can put it in a spray bottle and spray them.
Either way, let the solution remain on your food for at least five minutes before rinsing and preparing as usual.
The vinegar in this solution helps to break down any waxy substances that are applied to fruits and vegetables. Water alone will not penetrate them, in fact, many pesticides are designed to be water-resistant. Salt helps to pull out any microscopic bugs. The colloidal silver will safely kill any harmful fungal, bacterial or viral pathogens.
