View Full Version : How do you get wax off of fruits and vegetables

I want to juice the whole apple but not with the wax on it. Is there a way to take the wax off of fruits and vegetable?

I'd imagine the wax won't get into your juice, just as the peel it sticks to doesn't. But if you're worried about it, I'd peel the apples prior to juicing them.

I'd just wash it with a mild dish soap and see if that cuts through it.
If not, I'd peel it. I personally wouldn't put it into my juice. :eek:

I use an environmentally friendly, non-toxic fruit/veggie wash that is very cheap and lasts a long time. It is the Shaklee Basic-H cleaner. I use it regularly and it gets all the wax and pesticides off. Let me know if you want more info and I can pass it along to you (firstname.lastname@example.org).

I use Veggie Wash (http://www.veggie-wash.com/). It's safe and 100% natural. Dishwashing liquid doesn't do the trick. My juice tasted like soap:eek:.

a vinegar and warm water mixture .
i think maybe lemon juice and warm water also .

Really? I tried that and the stupid wax wouldn't get off of there. I wish the stores wouldn't do that to fruits and vegetables :mad:

Could you please post the info on the vegetable washes? :D
You're right, sometimes if you don't rinse well, it tastes like soap. I've had that happen. . . and YUCK! A veggie wash would be better.
