Removing Wax From Apples
One apple a day keeps the doctor away. Yes? Well, after this video, it seems that it depends on where you buy your apple.
Growing apples is a very popular thing. Almost every business sprays wax on its apples and similar fruits. The wax is supposed to give the fruit an extra shine, and we all know that bright things attract buyers. The brightness is not the only thing the wax is used for. The wax increases the life of the fruits, so the stores often use them as much as possible because it is much cheaper than throwing rotten products away.
The amount of wax in an Apple will surprise you!, The creator of this video has a simple test.They poured hot water on the store bought apples and let them get warm for a while. Of course, the wax began to melt and to make a white layer visible in the apple.
Luckily for us, the wax can be removed in just a few simple steps with the ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen – lemon juice, baking soda and hot water.
Take the bowl large enough to store the apples and add 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Add the apples and fill the bowl with water. Let the apples sit in the water for a few minutes, then clean the wax.
