Q 12. It washes surface contaminants what about the pesticide inside ?

Ans: The most fatal are pre-harvest and post-harvest chemical sprays which are done between 10 -15 days prior to reaching your kitchen as these chemicals are not disintegrated in such short time hence the vegetables / fruits end up on your plate laced with these chemicals on the surface. The residues inside are much lesser than the surface. It is wise to wash the surface thoroughly to reduce the load of chemicals than worry how much is inside or else there will be no need to wash at all.
