How to clean your produce without wasting water
J Thoendell stashed this in Food
Henry recommends treating your produce like dishes, filling one bowl or pan with wash water (soap optional) and another with rinse water. Start by dunking or leaving produce to soak in the wash water, then rinse off in the next “clean” bowl or pot, and finally wipe clean and dry everything off with a towel.
For bonus points, try to save the rinsing bowls and pots for use for the next day or two (or until they get too grimy/dirty). You can also, of course, recycle the water for your plants.
