Bob the Tomato and his buddies enjoying their spa treatment.

There are lots of different household routines involved in living in Honduras. One of them involves making sure our food is safe to eat. So every time we come home from the grocery store, I pull out my big "bleaching bowl". We fill it with water and add a cap-full of bleach. Then I drop in all the fresh vegetables and fruit and leave them to soak in their bath for about 30 minutes before drying them and putting them in the fridge. This "spa treatment" will kill any bacteria that might make us sick and washes off any unwanted pesticides or other chemicals that may have been used on the plants.
