Most of the fruit we purchase comes directly from a local fruit farm that grows their produce naturally but every now and then we want something that isn’t in season. The same goes with our vegetables—we grow almost everything we eat ourselves and do a lot of canning to store up for the winter months. But when we do go to the store to buy fruits or veggies, I worry a lot about the chemicals that were used to grow them. I love having a safer alternative to be able to wash them off instead of having to use just plain water to rinse them.
Enter iGozen. iGozen is a safe vegetable and fruit wash that is made naturally from seashells. It is ground down into a micro-fine powder that you can then add to water to soak your produce in or put in the spray bottle the company provides to spray it down with. It rinses away completely and leaves no film or product behind.
My dad and I tried it with grapes. We did a bunch with iGozen and a bunch with water. The grapes that we rinsed in a bowl of water looked the same as the grapes in iGozen but the water looked different. There was a lot more stuff in the second bowl than in the one with plain water. It also had a tiny bit of film on the top that looked strangely like when the light reflects on an oil spill, just clear.
We’re sold on this product from that one test. We love it and we can’t wait for summer to be over so that when we need to start purchasing fruits and veggies from the store again, we can rest assured that we can make them as safe as possible before consumption.
You can buy iGozen from their website, www.igozen.com.
Oh! And did I mention that the box the product comes in has multiple uses after you finish with it? It eve has suggestions on what to do instead of tossing it in the trash! We’re keeping it on our fridge with the washing powder packets in it so we don’t forget about them come fall because it has a magnet in the box.
