What is Eat Cleaner?

EAT CLEANER is the only all-natural, tasteless and odorless food wash + wipes for produce, seafood and poultry that is lab proven to remove significantly more wax and residue from the surface of fresh food than water. EAT CLEANER has been tested by several independent third party labs to proven efficacy.  Additionally, EAT CLEANER helps inhibit food browning while prolonging the shelf life of fresh produce, saving consumers money.

I’ve never washed my food with anything other than water. Why do I need Eat Cleaner?

Most produce is waxed to withstand the average 1,500 mile journey and over 20 sets of hands from field to fork. Wax seals in pesticide residue and debris, which can not be removed with water. Pesticide exposure is linked to Autism, Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease and other autoimmune Diseases. There were 78 million reported cases of food borne illness and 5,000 deaths last year in the U.S. alone. We believe the time is ripe to Eat Cleaner. Those with weak systems, particularly infants, children, pregnant women and the elderly are sensitive to foodborne illness and pesticide exposure.

How does Eat Cleaner work?

EAT CLEANER products are formulated to strip away wax to thoroughly cleanse residues and dirt trapped under the surface. EAT CLEANER also removes surface debris from seafood and poultry and effectively cleans food preparation and cutting surfaces to help deter cross contamination. Statistics show about 80% of food borne illness is attributed to poor food handling practices. With daily food recalls and outbreaks, our mantra is Think Before You Bite. As parents and grandparents, the two set out to create a line of products that helps consumers put food safety into their own hands.
