3. Cleaner Produce:

We do not want dirt and pesticides on our produce; therefore, baking soda is a simple solution. Take one tablespoon of baking soda and mix it together with a cup of warm water. With a bristle, dip into your paste and begin gently scrubbing away any residue left on the produce. Make sure to rinse away all baking soda with water before you begin cooking.

4. Gross Sponges:
