Helps to clean those fruits and veggies better than ever - and it's a lot less expensive than those commercial produce washes.

I wasn't sure how this was any different than washing the vegetables in water. Does vinegar kill potential bacteria? Either way, I was recommended it to get the wax off of some apples for a recipe. It didn't quite get the waxy shine off of the apples, but I guess it cleaned them better. I ended up rewashing them in super hot water to remove that. Plus, I was afraid of a vinegar after taste on the apples. If it kills something possibly deadly, and that is the intent, than great stuff.
