ABSTRACT: The effects of washing with tap and lemon water, acetic acid and sodium bicarbonate on different pesticide residue levels in grapes were investigated at 10 min processing time. An analysis of these pesticides was conducted using easy Household washing methods. The processing factor (PF) for each pesticide in each processing technique was determined. Washing with Bicarbonate was demonstrated to be more effective than washing with tap water. Bicarbonate decreased the residues of the most compounds, with reductions ranging from 35 to 85.9 %. The data indicated that cleaning and washing were the most effective treatments for the reduction of pesticide residues on grapes, resulting in a lower health risk to pesticide exposure. To investigate the levels of pesticides in grape samples and their properties, a principal component analysis (PCA) was performed.
