Woman Washes Fruit And Veg In Dishwasher With Vinegar - People Aren't Impressed

Woman Washes Fruit And Veg In Dishwasher With Vinegar - People Aren't Impressed

A woman has shared a hack for washing fruit and vegetables on TikTok using a dishwasher and vinegar - but people are far from convinced by the method. You can watch her washing 'tip' here:

In the viral video, user @smilelop showcases her washing machine, which has been fully loaded with a variety of fruit and veg, including a pineapple, grapes and apples.

She then pours distilled white vinegar in the detergent compartment, sets it running and voila - she's washed her crops in the washing machine.

But is this necessary, effective or even safe? Judging by the reaction to the video - which has been viewed a million times - it doesn't seem many people will be rushing to try it out.

One person commented: "I literally don't know why this would be necessary."

Another said: "And when its done there's a biiig SMOOTHIIIIIIE!"

A third added: "Idk seems like a lot of bacteria."

Woman Baffles People On TikTok By Revealing Her True Age

If you want to try the hack then by all means knock yourself out, but just for balance, here is the NHS advice re fruit and veg washing: "Washing will help remove bacteria, including E.coli, from the surface of fruit and vegetables.

"Most of the bacteria will be in the soil attached to the produce. Washing to remove any soil is, therefore, particularly important.

"When you wash vegetables, wash them under a running tap and rub them under water, for example in a bowl of fresh water. Start with the least soiled items first and give each of them a final rinse.

"Washing loose produce is particularly important as it tends to have more soil attached to it than pre-packaged fruit and vegetables.

"It is always advisable to wash all fruit and vegetables before you eat them to ensure they are clean and to help remove bacteria from the outside. Peeling or cooking fruit and vegetables can also remove bacteria."

See, no mention of dishwashers full of vinegar. Still, that's not to say TikTok doesn't throw up the odd handy tip every now and again.

April-Joy Goodlet, from Brisbane, Australia, recently shared a neat little trick for eating sushi, whereby you pierce the sushi with the soy sauce bottle before pumping the condiment inside, where it is absorbed evenly by the rice within.

Clearly, many people had never thought to do this as the video proved to be a huge hit, amassing more than 2.7 million views.
