RInse apple with warm water, then mix about 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tbsp of baking soda in a gallon of water. Add apples to this mix, then scrub them. Rinse again.
Only wash the amount you will eat in the next day or two as they will spoil faster.
This depends on the byproduct. If you are baking a Pie or apple dumpling you can peel them before you wash them and wash the peeled result In a Colander. Otherwise if you are leaving on the skin, and not Slicing them you wash them with peels.
If slices with Peels are the Desired result, you should wash after you slice, not Before.
You can mix 1 part vinegar, 3 parts water, and some lemon essential oils and soak them in that for 5 minutes and rinse
