    I would use baking soda to soak my vegetables and then rinse well.
    There is food grade hydrogen peroxide out there. That is what you would want to use. I have a whole case of it. I'd send you a bottle if I knew where you lived, lol You can order it on line if you do not have a store that sells it locally.
    When you can't buy organic, here is a soak or spray you can use to
    remove the harmful pesticides, especially from the worse, which are:
    Strawberries, Apples, Peaches, Plums, Spinach,

    Ingredients

    1 cup water

    1 cup distilled white vinegar

    1 tbsp baking soda

    1/2 of a lemon

    Directions

    Combine all ingredients in a large container. Transfer to a spray
    bottle with a pump. Spray mixture on produce and let sit for 5
    minutes. Scrub and rinse.
    Why would you have to use a chemical to wash the veg ?
    I agree with python Why! There are plenty of other things to wash your vegetables in. Don't wash them in peroxide.
    Yes, you can use hydrogen peroxide; this would be very effective. Just be sure to rinse it off your vegetables throughly, because ingestion of hydrogen peroxide is toxic.

    There is a food grade hydrogen peroxide to use. Do not use the stuff in your medicine cabinet. The food grade can be consumed.
