Wait, my grandmother always told me to wash my fruits and vegetables after buying them, but not with soap!
According to virologist Timothy Newsome, not only can the COVID-19 stick to surfaces, it can stick to our fresh produce.
Newsome says, “We have to remember that every surface is potentially contaminated. And like with any surface there is a risk. We don’t see it as high risk because that comes from sustained contact with other people, but nonetheless it’s important to be mindful.”
I just can’t see myself eating grapes after they’ve been washed with soap! I guess anything to stay alive, right?
Are you washing your fruits and veggies with soap?
