Washing Greens--Do you add anything to water?

12 years ago

I've seen various suggestions for maybe adding something to the wash water like vinegar, salt, or enven chlorine bleach. In the April 2009 issue of "Growing for Market" (p. 10) Henderson and Spula mention using hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, or peroxyacetic acid, with a personal preference to not use chlorine. I've seen several references in this forum to using additives, and there may be a string already speaking to this that I haven't found. Could people state their opinions and practices on using additives--pro and con--and especially comment on the amount of additive per gallon of rinse water? Thanks!
