Be honest: You love to check out the produce markets when you travel, but you don’t always trust the cleanliness of what you see on the street. You probably shouldn’t be any more comfortable with the produce you find in the grocery store, either, as it’s covered in preservative waxes and chemicals. Even if you buy organic, you still need to clean soil and germs off your haul. EatCleaner’s line of 100 percent natural products will safely wash all of your produce at home and on the go, and some of the products even increase produce shelf life, preventing food waste and ultimately saving money.
EatCleaner Fruit + Vegetable Wipes are designed for firm-fleshed fruits, like apples and pears, that need to be cleaned before being bitten into, and are biodegradable themselves. For travelers, the resealable 32-pack is especially useful not just for safely cleaning produce, but for wiping down airline tray tables and other surfaces that may come into contact with things you plan to eat.
For soft fruits and leafy vegetables that can’t be wiped, spray eatCleaner’s Fruit + Vegetable Wash directly onto the produce, wait two minutes, then rinse for clean food that’s ready to be eaten or stored. If you are storing this for later, you’ll be glad to know this vegan and gluten-free, all natural spray has been shown to help produce last five times longer than simple water washing.
Finally, if you can’t take your bottle of Fruit + Veggie Wash on the go (at 12 ounces, it’s too large for your carry-on bag), grab a packet of eatCleaner’s Food Grade Wash powder. Combine the powder with one gallon of water to create a cleansing bath for all of your produce, wherever you are.
Asian countries are known for street food. From pad Thai in Bangkok to pho and dumplings in Vietnam, it wouldn’t be a trip to Asia without sampling some of the food cooked right outside your hotel’s doors. Before sampling this world-famous style of cuisine, brush up on the following tips to ensure you don’t commit a culinary faux pas.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Celebrated as a rich, historical and cultural center, Rome attracts scores of visitors every year. However, the capital of Italy isn’t known for its cheap price tag and budget accommodations. Luxury accommodations and upscale boutique hotels are the norm, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find your own secret budget stays in and around the city. Here’s where to start your search.
My husband and I arrived to Kenwood Inn & Spa about an hour before check-in time and luckily our room was ready. The front desk attendant asked if we need assistance with our luggage, then escorted us to our room. Along the way, she pointed out the rooms past the lobby where the daily complimentary breakfast is served, as well as complimentary wine tastings. I enjoyed a glass of welcome Champagne as we made our way to the room.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
