You can purchase  a special liquid soap made by White Cat brand of soaps for dishes that is especially made to clean fruits and vegetables.  If you are worried about leafy, green vegetables, than add just a few drops of bleach to the water, very few, add the soap mentioned above and rinse well.  Additionally, all meat and poultry should also be rinsed at least.

We have a water filtration system fitted to our kitchen (and the water feed to our fridge) that makes the water potable, we use that water for washing food we are going to eat without cooking.

Unfortunately it is not enough to just clean with clean filtered water.  Pesticides are on everything.  That is why we have perfect fruits and vegetables.  The Chinese just rinse and cook since they believe all the chemicals will be cooked/washed off.  ewww.  Not true.

 

You do have to use cleaning method.  Either buy the bottled solution above that someone mentioned or 1 cup of vinegar to a sink full of water and soak for about 20 minutes.  you'll see residue come off and floating.  That is your pesticides/chemicals.  Or  maybe just peel everything before eating.

I use vinegar and salt wash to clean veggies. When I don't have vinegar, I use lemon.

We sprinkle flour on the fruit then wash and rince...seams to do a good job

Stiggs:

Flour? I never heard of that but I can see how it might work with the friction and all...

 

I just run the food under cold water and give it a vigorous wash with my hands. I never made myself sick from my own cooking so supose it works ok.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
