Grocery shopping is a bit of a minefield these days, as we are all trying to keep ourselves and others in our communities, markets, and stores super safe and healthy. As such, there’s a lot of information out there that is helpful, and a lot that is not. It makes sense that a lot of us have grocery questions right now.
It seems like the more information that’s published about groceries, the more questions that come up. Lately, a lot of people are talking about whether or not bleaching your groceries before eating them is an appropriate step to take.
