had any issues with anything. When I get my lettuce home, I cut off the root, give it a good rinse under the faucet, then submerge in fresh water in my salad spinner bowl, and let it soak for about an hour. Lettuce is spun until all water is removed, then put into zip lock bags. I do the same with any packaged lettuce I buy, which is not very much. Fruits, and hard veggies such as zucchini, squash, cukes, get a scrub under the faucet with warm water using a home made scrubber I buy from my hair cutter. see link. Then I use a clean paper towel to dry, prior to cutting the fruit or veggie. Mom always used a brush, but I like the scrubbers because they can go through the dishwasher or washing machine.

My husband consumes a lot of grapes, all year long, He puts them into a wire colander, and rinses with water several times, then lets them dry before putting into fridge.
