One thing I would not recommend eating ... bamboo shoots bought on the street from farmers in Fuxing, Sanmin, Sanxia or anywhere else. Why? Because farmers mostly use tons of herbicides and fertilizers to get them shoots. Do not care about soil conservation or nature.

If you can get 'wild' shoots from the forrest it's OK, no one meddles with those plants, but be sure to go and dig your own or know the person you can trust that says they are 'wild' shoots.

Yes - but wouldn't using washing up liquid could introduce a whole new host of chemicals and soap up a good meal? Not sure but not keen to try.

Also looking for quicker solutions faster than wash, brush and rinse rinse rinse. I am trying to win the award for most efficient bachelor too.

Paraquat is the trade name for N,N′-dimethyl-4,4′-bipyridinium dichloride, is the organic compound with the formula [(C5H4N)2]Cl2. It is classified as a viologen, a family of redox-active heterocycles of similar structure. This salt is one of the most widely used herbicides. It is quick-acting and non-selective, killing green plant tissue on contact. It is also toxic to human beings and animals. It is linked to development of Parkinson's disease.[5][6] The name is derived from the para positions of the quat ernary nitrogens. A variety of related compounds are used in textiles.


'bipyridinium' is probably a typo as it's printed in Taiwan! The internet doesn't know 'bipyridinium'

They use this to do that ...

On the public road too, no one cares if dogs are going into the weed and get it all over them, and no one cares about the fumes inhaled by passers-by!

BTW, enjoy your bamboo shoots!

Well, you have friction, chemicals, dilution or removing the outer layer. What other solutions could there be?

You still have to get dirt, animal waste, bugs and polluted water off your organics.

Scrub and soap and rinse.

We should clean vegetable before cooking. Vegetable like ladyfinger , cabbage we should keep this vegetable in water for 10 to 15 min.
