How do you all wash your vegetables?

Soak in water?

Rinse vegetables under the tap?

Vegetable wash spray?

It's really depends on which vegetable I use, like for example... root vegeatbles, I'll rinse them under the water, if it is green vegetable or something related.. I'll soak them in water to remove dirt and etc...
I never heard of this "Vegetable Wash Spray"... Enlighten me please.

Fit Fruit and Vegetable Wash

I'll usually just toss it under the tap, even when I'm at work.

Very quick rinse to avoid having them soaked with water. We have an electric stove and wet vegetables on that heat source ends up with steamed or boiled vegetables :/

Keep your mushrooms away from water! I don't even wipe mine down

I wonder how many foodsafe violations I've committed, I've heard arguments on both sides..

^I use Xilley's method and dry with a paper towel.

I've seen restaurants (and some chefs on TV) not wash some of their veggies, like a romaine heart where they cut it in half and use the entire half; aren't they worried about bugs?

Usually have to soak them in salt water for a bit, then rinse them. We have found all sorts of creatures in our veggies, from tiny caterpillars, to small flies, to freakin snails.

Greens soak in salt water to remove dirt or bugs.

Romaine Hearts are typically washed before being processed so washing is not that nescessary. A head of Romaine lettuce is different. Peel of the numbers of leaves you want to eat, and treat as greens.

What's the advantage of using salt water?

I don't leave them in the water overnight. =)
Quick rinse should suffice but definately wipe them clean of the dirt.

Salt water is supposed to kill the worms and bugs.

Lettuce I'll chop up, throw it in a pasta drainer, run under tap. Veggies like carrots, potatos etc I'll peel them first, quick rinse. Mushrooms same thing, pasta drainer, and fondle them like I fondle my balls in the shower to get em nice n clean n shiny.

Lol mushrooms there's nothing wrong with washing them in water. Its dirty, wiping doesn't really do much...cause every veggie has water content in them already doesn't do any harm to the mushrooms if u rinse them under water.
I soak my greens with salt water too . It gives a nice crisp to them after. I soak them for about 5 minutes but with many times of water.
