I have tried using ripe bilimbi juice mixed with salt and diluted with water as a pesticide remover in grains, pulses and vegetables and have found that the food article has become more soft and tasty after this treatment. I am using the same instead of tamarind paste and vinegar and have found it to be very effective. Are there any harmful side-effects?
