I don't know about moving pesticides, but I have been doing this for a while now because it removes the wax that is put on fruits and veggies nowadays. After a good soak, the water in the sink will be pretty dirty, so I know it is removing a lot of yuck.

I buy organic for my family (suggies included) but even so, I use a fruit and vegetable spray that has plant based ingredients and works really well. Link is below ;)

What do you guys think?  Will this do the trick?  I'm about to do it, anyway, so I hope it helps!  Lol.  I'm going to put enough water in the sink to cover the fruits and veggies and then add some apple cider vinegar.  It can't hurt, right?

I don't think so. Apple cider vinegar is safe for them to drink, so you're good there.

Can you taste the vinegar after washing them?

no you cannot. You rinse them well and they are bright and shiny and tasty. I think that my strawberries last longer in the fridge after cleaning this way.
