    What are the best ways to get the wax off of apples?

    There is a lot of angst over the wax coating on apples, which are supposed to be good for us! How do we get rid of the stuff?

    You can if you want to remove the wax and any pesticides trapped under the wax mix a solution in a sink made of a tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of baking soda added to a sink of warm water and wash your apples with a cotton cloth in the solution and it will remove the wax but let me caution you that the apple was probably waxed because it may have been picked too early. The wax may have also trapped pesticide under the wax. I would peel any waxed apple before I would eat it if I had bought a waxed apple but I don't purchase waxed apples.
