The Clorox Food Bath: Can’t Buy Organic? Try Soaking Your Food In Clorox Bleach

PinExt The Clorox Food Bath: Can’t Buy Organic? Try Soaking Your Food In Clorox Bleach

Are you kidding me?? That was my reaction when I first saw my mom soaking food in water mixed with Clorox bleach. Although it sounds startling and a little unsettling, soaking your foods in a Clorox bath is actually very safe. It can help kill and remove toxins, pesticides, chemicals, bacteria, fungus, and other harmful poisons from conventional (non-organic) foods. Obviously, eating organic food is much healthier for you but it can get pretty expensive and isn’t always available. Although you can’t put a price tag on good health, there are ways to get the best bang for your buck!

(I’m not a bath guy but I wouldn’t mind taking one with this kind of view!)

Here’s What You Need For The Clorox Food Bath

Whether you have meat, vegetables, fruit, and even eggs, all you need to do is take about 1 teaspoon of Clorox and mix it with 1 gallon of purified water (preferably.) Make sure to prepare a new and fresh bath for each food group. Drain or dispose of the mixture after use. Then soak the food in a regular freshwater bath for about 10-15 minutes to ensure there is no residue. Drain the water…dry the food… and eat!

Bath soaking times:

1) Meats: 5-10 minutes per pound (make sure to thaw beforehand)

2) Vegetables: 25-30 minutes (Vegetables with roots)

                      12-15 minutes (Leafy vegetables)

3) Fruit: 25-30 minutes (thicker skinned fruits) 

            12-15 minutes (berries or thin skinned fruits)

4) Eggs: 25-30 minutes

Note: Don’t forget about soaking the food in fresh water after the initial Clorox bath.   Using more Clorox does NOT equal better.

Use Only “Regular” Clorox Bleach

This is a must! This only works with Clorox and not any other brand. The use of this brand produces an effect that is similar to homeopathic potentization. Which is nerd for: Clorox acts as a magnet. Its strong negative charge will pull the chemicals/toxins positively charged molecules from the food. Too much Clorox can damage the food due to a higher chance of oxidative damage.   This is why it is important to make sure your 1 teaspoon measurement is accurate.

Give It A Try And Tell Me What You Think 

Soaking your food in this bath will both enhance the flavor and shelf life of your food. It also doesn’t leave an unpleasant aftertaste. Since there is only a small amount used, any residue that is left will be washed away from the second bath. So if you can’t buy organic, this little tip will rid the food items of harmful pesticides, or other chemicals and poisons that are universally found on non-organic foods. If you can’t buy organic, give the Clorox food bath a try and let the comments roll! 

An Interesting Quote By Dr. Parcells Who Discovered This Technique

“A very educated man came to see me. He had heard about the miracles my cleansing methods performed turning lifeless, contaminated substances into excellent quality food. I told him how he could clean his food by putting it into a solution of water with a few drops of Clorox bleach. ‘But bleach is a poison!” he exclaimed. ‘A spoonful of whiskey won’t kill you, I said, but a quart might.’ I never heard from him again. There is no use in trying to educate the overeducated; they’ve already made up their minds about how things work.”

  1. I have never heard of anyone trying this out. I guess using clorox in small quantities becomes diluted in water but keeps the cleaning abilities intact. Don’t know if I will try it. I guess I have to change my way of thinking when it comes to bleach.
    P.S. Awesome bathroom pic!

      Dr. Parcel was a very famous nutritionist. She lived to the age of 104. Many nutrition scientists know of the Clorox Bath. in fact, it has been used by the military in the 1960s and 1970s who were deployed in Asia, this is until the canned food epidemic started. You can read about the Clorox Bath in many nutrition research (the sophisticated ones). You can always give it a try. It will cost a dime. Get a miserable looking lime or orange, put in the Clorox bath and see what happens :o )

        Believe me I was a little nervous about it at first but it’s awesome. The only trick is to use the exact amount. There is no need to use more/less. It gets the job done and won’t make you sick.

        @Ruby
        Yes it does wonders on fruit. I have seen it work very well with limes like you mentioned. I had no idea that you can’t get it in the UK. Well where would you be able to buy it at? Have you tried buying it online and then have it shipped to you? Anyways, thanks for the comment!

    Are you serious? Clorox (even the unscented kind) contains several additives, including colorants that have been banned from food for over 50 years. You might remove the pesticide, but you will add a whole new raft of contaminants. If you want to bleach your food, use food grade bleach, though I don’t think I would recommend applying chlorine of any type to anything that is getting consumed.

      @ Andrea
      Thank you for your comment and I will try and clear up a little bit of confusion. Clorox is NOT the same as chlorine(chemical disinfectant added in drinking water). Actually, the active ingredient in Clorox is sodium hypochlorite. This ingredient breaks down into salt and water. It is also important to note that I am talking about the “original” Clorox. Not some of the updated ones with special scents, coloring, “additivies,” etc that you may be referring to. The Clorox bath has been around for decades which military families in Asia, China, and Turkey have used. There are some other food-cleansing bath products available if you want an alternative but I have found Clorox to be the best so far. Especially for its oxygenating value.
      1) apple cider vinegar
      2) 3/4 cup of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide
      3) Bi-O-Kleen (contains grape seed extract)
      4) Organiclean
      -There are definitely more and more new products out there but I just wanted to name a few.
      Please let me know where you got that information because I would be more than happy to research. I just think there might have been some confusion. Please feel free to comment again.

    Thank you so much for the post. I have been looking for this “recipe” for very long since I lost Dr. Parcel’s book. Unfortunately, they don’t sell Clorox in the UK where I live now.
    You will have a hard time convincing people it is a great thing to do. I remember Dr. Anne Louise Gittleman recommended it as well in many of her books. I used to do it all the time as organic food is too expensive to live on. I could see the difference very clearly in the taste of meat in specific.
    I am not sure why people are so scared of the idea. It’s not as toxic as a cigarette, or sitting in traffic for five minutes. Try it folks.. what have you got to lose?! It’s been tried for 70 years.. just not famous.

    My Mother used to spread diluted Clorox on the outside of the house as a pesticide to keep bugs out of the house! Works great as a pesticide! I’ll stick with organic produce! “When you go to the grocery store you are casting a vote. ”

    We vote organic!

      Have definitely done that too. I’m also a big fan of using apple cider vinegar for just about everything. Cleansing the inside and outside of your body(great antifungal) as well as a cleaning solution for your house. The only problem is that stuff is going to smell like vinegar so I prefer Bi-O-Kleen when it comes to things in the house.

    Another option to use it Grapefruit Seed Extract concentrate liquid. It actually can kill fungus better than clorox, kills strep…….I use it to clean my kid’s toothbrushes, gargle with upon scratchy throat, put it in the laundry, dishwasher, wash foods with it……hospitals use it to sterilize as well.

    I have used Clorox soaks since 2008 and I am doing great. I got the idea from the fat flush diet. It only requires a small amount of Clorox to soak the food and of course you rinse / soak a final time without the solution to wash the Clorox off the food. Still skeptical,the same process was used back during periods of war to cleanse food, way before organic food markets/ growing existed in the USA.

    I have used Dr. Parcells’ method of oxygen food cleansing formula for more than a decade with nothing by extraordinary results. 4 or 5 times every year, I travel to a house my boyfriend owns in Mexico. Some of the pesticides used in that country are illegal in the USA. Both at home and abroad, I have used this method for every single food that can be placed in water, and it works wonderfully. It’s a simple method, but when you’ve just returned from the market with a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits, it takes some time to make sure everything is oxygenated before putting the food away for preparation later. It is ALWAYS worth the effort. I have never had one adverse effect using this method and am so wedded to it that I wouldn’t even think of just rinsing off anything I prepare to eat. I feel as if I am taking a dangerous chance as regards my health whenever I eat out, so much to my dismay, I do it infrequently. Friends have blanched at the thought of cleaning their foods this way. I simply smile at how they are aghast at this method and move along. And for the record, a solution of trace amounts of bleach is used by the handlers of certain vegetables like spinach and carrots to rid those foods of bacteria before they are packaged. This method is used on those bags of spinach and other vegetables you buy in the supermarket that have pre-washed. When I buy these types of foods, I use Dr. Parcells method anyhow.
