Author Ellen Sandback shared this guest blog post, an elegant and simple solution to killing bacteria in your home, from her book, Green Housekeeping .
Disinfecting raw foods:
When you are washing fruits and vegetables, rinse off the dirt and grit, then spray them with vinegar and then with hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide, which has no taste, rinses the vinegar off the produce. No further rinsing is necessary.
The above was posted on SparkPeople.com and I have been using this method. Seems to work for me. Though it says it's not necessary I do rinse well with water afterward.
