If you need to clean larger size vegetables or fruits, I use a pan or pot designated to clean my fruits or vegetables. I add 2 TBSP of vinegar per cups of water in the pan. I soak my vegetables or fruits in the pan. I then swish the water/vegetables/fruit around in the pan to remove dirt and bugs. Drain the vegetables or fruit in a colander, then rinse in the pan with clean water. Drain again using the colander. Soak in clean water again if needed.
