#FirstImpression Of ITC Nimwash

The ITC Nimwash – Vegetable & Fruit Wash is priced at Rs 190/- for a 1 liter (1000 ml) bottle. It is not an easy pour spout bottle. The liquid is slightly bubbly, clear, and smells mildly citrusy.

How we used it – We washed fruits and veggies for a week using this wash as per the instructions given on the bottle. The vegetables and fruits we washed included, spinach, lettuce, ladyfinger, apples, tomatoes, and lauki (ghiya).

What we noticed was significantly cleaner looking fruits and vegetables. The leafy greens looked cleaner, and veggies like ladyfinger (bhindi) looked fresher too. There was a change in the color of the veggies – which typically only happens when you soak them in vinegar.

The results can be attributed to the presence of Citric Acid – a naturally occurring acid in citrus fruits like lemons and oranges, and also produced for industrial purposes. Citric acid has an acidic pH which slows down the oxidation process, and as a result, the fruits and veggies look visibly brighter and fresh. It also helps eliminate bacteria.

Nimwash also contains neem oil which has strong anti-bacterial properties and is a natural insecticide.

Bottom line is, our fresh produce was visibly cleaner, and ‘healthier-looking’.

Mishry rating (On a scale of 0-5) – 4/5 Mishrys for the ITC Nimwash.
