Buying organic fruit and vegetables is the best way to go, but if you are unable to buy all your fruit and vegies as organic then it is highly recommended you give your vegies a bit of scrub to at least eradicate some of the chemicals left on the skin.
Full Circle’s Ring Vegetable Brush is a must for the kitchen drawer or could hang nicely in your kitchen! The ring is made of bamboo and is a great size for my hand to easily grip. The bristles are made from natural and recycled plastic bristles which are tough enough to get dirt off your vegies but gentle enough not to bruise delicate fruit.
Leaving the skins on your fruit and vegetables will give you more fibre and nutrients, so instead of peeling root vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes and carrots just give them a good scrub with the vegetable brush and some water.
I find this brush the easiest I have used with the bristles giving a great clean to my vegies unlike any other. And it is a pretty cool shape too! Bamboo is naturally antibacterial so you know you have a clean vegie brush every time. Remember to keep your brush out of water when you are not using it to improve the longevity of the product.
