Joyful mama of 3.
Strawberries on on the top five list of the fruits containing the most pesticides,
There is no way to wash it off, they are sprayed several times throughout there growing period and it is absorbed into the fruit.
this holds true with many fruits and veggies, peaches, plums and any berries are very high in pesticides too....
Doesn't guarantee that the pesticides are gone, but it's better than a rinse alone.
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
I always buy organic now (ever since I found out how heavily they're sprayed), and just give them a quick rinse. The average person eats pounds of dirt a year, so unless I can see it, I don't worry about it.
