Good Home Vegetable & Fruit Wash - Review



In recent times, we all source for organic produce for their nutritive value and the importance for organically grown vegetable and fruits. Its also important to have vegetable and fruits that are washed well. Our mothers always washed vegetable and fruits in running tap water which was clean. Nowadays getting clean water in taps is in itself a topic to discuss, but do you think just washing vegetables in water is enough to have clean vegetables and fruits? Well today's post will be an eye opener for all of you as I will talk about this in detail. We all know that washing fruits and vegetables not only helps remove dirt, bacteria but also removes residual pesticides. But do you think just water will help you clean away all that? And some produce are also porous so if we use artificial agents to clean will they absorb the agents while cleaning?. I have come across in the internet that vinegar is a great way to help clean the vegetables and fruits. I even saw many videos and articles in the internet that adding fruits in a sink and filling it up with water and vinegar solution can help. I found it to be ridiculous for the very fact that sinks are a place for more bacteria and germs. Not to forget that vinegar with its pungent smell puts anyone off. Recently I got a fruit and vegetable wash from Good home (TTK Company) for review purposes and put it to test.

GOOD HOME CLAIM

Good Home claims that their vegetable and fruit wash helps remove bacteria and fungus. What can be so special about them compared to age old vinegar? Well on the first instance I found that it does not have any strong flavour and the liquid is skin friendly although they instruct us to avoid eye contact. 


INGREDIENTS IN FRUIT & VEG WASH


One key ingredient that goes in the wash is tulasi extract.

Being an Indian product the use of tulasi is sure a key drawing factor, as tulasi is known for its medicinal, anti-bacterial effects.

MY PERSONAL RATINGS

(5 being the highest)

Usability - 5/5

Packaging - 3/5
Quality of product - 4/5
Overall Rating - 4/5

Pros 

  • Easy to use
  • Cleans vegetables & fruits removing external dirt and bacteria
Cons 
  • A little time consuming
  • The liquid wash is too watery and sometimes you can tend to pour a little too much of liquid.

OVERALL THOUGHTS
  • Looking for more specifications on the kind of bacteria the wash claims to kill.
  • More instructions on what kind of vegetables and fruits that can be used to clean with this wash.
  • No inputs if the wash can remove wax from fruits like apple, lemon and oranges.
  • More specifics on weather the wash has to be used just before cooking or clean vegetables and stalk them ahead. 
  • No inputs if the wash can be used to clean green leafy vegetables / leaves. 
This post is my original thoughts on the product Good Home - Vegetable & fruit wash by TTK. Try the product for yourself to know how good it works. I personally felt that it did clean noticeable dirt on the surface of fruits and vegetables. One has to try it for themselves to know the effect of the product.
