To me organic means more $$$ for the product. I don't buy organic anything, and I grow my own tomatoes. Just planted 6 tomato plants and 18 various pepper plants.

I tend to agree with you on organic. However if you ever drink organic milk, you may never go back to regular milk.

I drink skim milk, yes it's like water but 1%,2% or whole milk tastes like cream now that I'm used to it.

Re: Sanitizing tomatoes?


We use whole organic milk for everything. I also use whole everything. There is not one food item in the house that has low fat or reduced fat on the label
Of course some foods are naturally low in fat anyway.

Salted butter, no margarine and I even have a tub of lard in the fridge. If it was less expensive, I would deep fry in lard, not vegetable oil.
Lard makes fries the best in the world!!!!!

Oh...Sorry. There is one thing. Bud Light. I do drink light beer unless I'm eating out.
I really love Dos Equis dark draught beer. The big one! Ice cold.
I get this each time I go for Mexican! I love Mexican.

On CBS This Morning, a doctor stated that the likely hood of catching CV-19 from groceries was minimal. In fact he said, basically, it was a waste of time to use Clorox wipes to wipe down what you bring home.

CV-19 is fairly fragile in the wild. It doesn't live long when exposed to UV light (fluorescent bulbs produce UV), sunlight, heat, acid, 80 proof alcohol and other things. 120* temp water and a bit of soap for 20 seconds washes it away. So does direct heat on the surface.

Berries come packed in a container, so after you open the container and dump them in a colander to rinse them, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands after disposing of the container and touching the berries. The same applies for any packaged produce.

For loose produce, put them in a colander to rinse them and take them out. Before you grab a knife or other prep tool, wash you hands. And don't touch the colander until your done.

Re: Sanitizing tomatoes?


Had my sister over for pizza on the patio and she told me that a friend read that 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water followed by a cool water rinse.


This morning I confirmed that: https://www.bestfoodfacts.org/fruit-vinegar/

When you clean the the aquarium and then rinse it, does it still smell of chlorine?
If I were to pour a glass of tap water, yes I can smell a faint odor of chlorine. Its not overpowering, but you know its there.
I only clean parts that go into the aquarium and I trust, the solution I use will remove it completely before I return those items to the tank.
But the point is I use chlorine and it does not hurt the fish.
Just like using a weak chlorine solution to clean fruit and certain vegetables. They get rinsed very well.
I don't use anything but cold water to clean off these foods. But I would not hesitate to eat these foods that have been washed with a bleach solution, then rinsed well. I am drinking it regularly anyway.

I think ingesting any amount of chlorine when you can still chlorine is probably not good for you.
The same for produce, if you can smell the chlorine on the produce, then you should rinse it further.
I agree chlorine is a poison that can kill quickly if presented in gas form and less so in the liquid form. But none the less bad for us.
But, I am eating these foods and have little idea of where and how they have been treated before I receive them.
In my opinion a small amount of chlorine ingested is not life threatening and may mitigate the possible virus we are discussing.
After all, I have been drinking chlorinated water my whole life.
I feel that I can successfully remove enough chlorine by rinsing to amounts less than is in the water supply.

Re: Sanitizing tomatoes?


Saw on TV a machine in grocery stores Where you hold your grocery bag out and slide it thru this machine which looks like it shoots steam out both sides (inside) cleaning your grocery bag as you leave.

Wonder if itís really necessary?

I would love that! But, it still leaves what's inside.
I'd like the steam machine at Fast-Food drive-thrus.


I wonder if the year of the coronavirus will change young people's thinking about being clean?

I myself would be more worried that the steam will cause burns on my hands, if it gets near them.

And how do they guarantee that you won't get burned?

Re: Sanitizing tomatoes?


Nik, There will always be people who question our new sanitizing practices but maybe the very young growing up will accept it as commonplace. Or it will depend how they were raised.

Ed, hope those machines wonít burn anyone.
