The woman added a capful of vinegar to her machine before taking it off and taking out all the food at the end of the cycle.
Many were impressed by the woman’s dedication to cleaning her fruits and vegetables and said it was ‘great’, but not everyone was on board with the idea.
“The berries would be everywhere,” said one person.
“Everything would be bruised by the rays,” added another.
A third posted, “I don’t know, seems like a lot of bacteria” – to which another replied “definitely rinse for less than 20 seconds.”

While it is not recommended to wash your fruits and vegetables in the dishwasher, Timothy Newsome, a former associate professor at the University of Sydney, told FEMAIL that you should wash them with soap – especially at times like COVID-19.
When it comes to washing your fruits and vegetables, Cathy Moir of CSIRO Agriculture and Food said she generally recommends a “good rinse.”
“Some people can go to extremes, but I tend to take a more practical approach and recommend a good flush,” she told the ABC.
She said heating or cooking also kills microorganisms, so if you plan on heating your fruits and vegetables to 75 degrees Celsius, or to a piping hot temperature level, you don’t have to rinse first.
“If you rinse your food, you lower the dose [of certain pathogens] and thereby reduce the risk of getting sick, “she said.
You should also be careful with organic products as it can also contain pathogens.

This is not the first TikTok cleaning trend to get off the ground in recent months.
Earlier, an Australian mom revealed her simple trick to clean her microwave from dirt, grime and old food – and it only takes you four minutes.
All you need is a cup of water and a teaspoon of detergent.
Then mix them in a jug and microwave them for four minutes.
Once you remove the jug from your microwave, wipe the interior and door with a clean cloth.
This should clean your microwave without chemicals.
