Harmful bacteria and pesticide residues on fresh fruit and vegetables are a worrying reality we all have to face if we don’t (always) have access to organic supplies. But now there’s a quick and easy way – that’s 100% natural – to get rid of these “nasties” in store-bought produce …
Introducing Absolute Organix’s new Organic Fruit & Veg Spray, a powerful, all-natural way to safely eliminate pesticide residues and harmful microbes from fresh produce. It also extends freshness. Simply spray and rinse.
Developed in Australia, the sanitising agents in our Fruit & Veg Spray are made from citrus bioflavanoids (mainly from bitter orange) and organic plant acids (see ingredient info below). The spray is hypo-allergenic, non-toxic and completely bio-degradable. It contains no artificial dyes, fragrances, preservatives, petroleum-derived ingredients or harmful chemicals such as chlorine, ammonia and triclosan, so it is safe for people and animals of all ages – and for our planet.
Our Fruit & Veg Spray Spray has been formulated to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, mould and fungi, and to break-down surface pesticide residues as well as biofilms and waxes.
The spray won’t alter the taste of produce and has the added advantage of keeping fruit & veg fresher for longer.
It has been certified in Australia and New Zealand for use in the handling of organic produce.
