FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Fit Fruit and Vegetable Wash wins the struggle you’ve been fighting for years—to get your fresh produce cleaner than nature intended. Nature isn’t always the cleanest place, as fruits and vegetables are grown in dirt and are often treated with pesticides and other chemicals. Fit removes 98% more dirt, pesticides, waxes, people-handling residues and other contaminants versus washing with water alone. Here are some answers to the most common questions about Fit.

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS FOUND IN FIT?

All of Fit’s ingredients are from natural sources and are found in everyday foods. Purified water, oleic acid and glycerol (from vegetable sources), ethyl alcohol (from corn), potassium hydrate (from basic minerals), baking soda (from basic minerals), citric acid (from corn starch and molasses), and distilled grapefruit oil.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE SPRAY AND THE SOAK PRODUCTS

The difference is in packaging only. The sprayer allows for easy, direct application of the product to produce and works well for cleaning single, easy-to-hold items such as an apple. Use the Soak method for:

  • Produce that is difficult to hold or difficult to rub
  • Produce that has lots of nooks and crannies, like lettuce, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower
  • Large quantities of easy-to-hold produce, for example, several apples for a pie, or baked potatoes for a large famil

HOW LONG WILL A BOTTLE OF FIT LAST?

It varies depending on the method of application and the frequency of use. However, under normal conditions a bottle of Fit should last 1-2 months.

CAN I USE FIT ON ALL TYPES OF FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES?

Yes.

DO I NEED TO USE FIT EVEN IF THE PRODUCE IS BEING COOKED?

Most governmental agencies and health professionals recommend washing all fresh produce regardless of how it is to be prepared. Foods taste better when starting with fresh, clean ingredients.

CAN I USE FIT ON ORGANIC PRODUCE GROWN AT HOME?

Yes. Organic does not mean clean. Much organically grown produce is grown with naturally occurring fertilizer such as manure. Fit will help to remove any unwanted residues on your produce such as dirt. Fit rinses away completely leaving no aftertaste or after smell.

DOESN'T USING FIT REQUIRE THE CONSUMER TO PERFORM ANOTHER STEP WHEN PREPARING FRUIT AND VEGETABLES?

Not really. Almost all consumers wash their fresh fruits and vegetables before they eat or cook them. Fit’s convenient spray form can be kept right by the sink and used whenever the consumer rinses fruits or vegetables. The soak method simply requires consumers to pour one capful of Fit into the soaking water and then rinse the produce as usual. When consumers use Fit, they will actually be able to see and feel that their efforts are making a difference, unlike when they use water alone.

SHOULD I WASH MY PRODUCE WITH FIT PRIOR TO STORING?

As Fit removes preservatives such as wax it is best to consume your produce 2-3 days after using Fit.

HOW MUCH OF THE CHEMICALS ON MY PRODUCE WILL FIT REMOVE COMPARED TO WATER?

Using Fit wash will remove 3 times more chemicals than using water alone.

WILL FIT LEAVE A TASTE OR SMELL ON PRODUCE?

No. Rinsing with water for 5-10 seconds after applying fit spray or soak totally removes it from produce.

HOW DO I KNOW IF FIT IS WORKING?

You’ll notice a difference in how your produce looks and feels. For instance:

 

  • You’ll notice how easy it is to clean the dirt and grit off of strawberries, celery, potatoes, spinach, lettuce, and other leafy greens.
  • Broccoli and grapes will appear brighter.
  • Apples and other waxed produce washed with Fit will look less shiny because wax has been removed.
  • Many fruits and vegetables washed with Fit will have a squeaky clean feel.

DOES FIT CONTAIN PRESERVATIVES?

No.

WILL USING FIT ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR PEELING?

When the purpose of peeling is to eliminate surface residues that are not removed by water alone, including wax, then using Fit can eliminate the need for peeling. It is worth noting that even produce you intent to peel (eg: potatoes for mash) should be washed in FIT.

IS IT OK TO USE FIT ON MEAT AND OTHER FOOD GROUPS?

FIt has not been tested on any food groups other than Fruit and Vegetables.
