Wash 'em in water plus whatever your little heart desires (and your little wallet can afford).
As the Shadow of God on Earth, the Master of the Masters of the Universe, pious, beneficent, and ancient, the One Who Knows All, to whom Heaven has given scintillating wit beyond that possessed by mere mortals[sup]1[/sup], the Perfect Master Cecil pointed out in Do laundry balls really work?, there is a certain amount of “mechanical action” (i.e., rubbing) inherent in stuff being washed. The worm eggs (and other nasties) are often (although not entirely) loosely embedded in gunk on the surfaces of vegetables, not clinging leech-like[sup]2[/sup] to the rinds themselves.
As for the evulll pesticide residues, it’s worth pointing out that:
[li]Unwashed vegetables seldom have harmful amounts of pesticide residues on them[/li][li]Organic vegetables do not have a lower level of residues, and sometimes not even different residues (and those that are – oy! Lead arsenate is a “natural” pesticide, and by virtue of being “natural” it must be harmless to humans and non-persistent, right? :rolleyes: )[/li][li]Hi, Opal![/li][li]You can use proprietary washing products that are on the market, if you like (and, as I said, if you can afford them). But, they don’t appear to be more effective in studies than good old dihydrogen monoxide.[/li][/list=1]

[sup]2[/sup][sub]Leeches, however, are not a problem that you’re likely to have with vegetables.[/sub]
