Messages and videos have been appearing on TikTok showing their followers just how to wash berries properly that has amassed a surge of more videos shared by others too. Salt water dissolved in water is a good trick to use, or vinegar water too, to make sure the the dirt and those little pesky bugs inside the fruit get off your delectable berries.
There are varying degrees of advice on how long you should soak your strawberries for from 5 to 30 minutes, so it is up to you to choose. Just don’t forget the second step of rinsing them afterward or else you will have salty or vinegary tasting berries – not too pleasant.
