<div><span style="font-size:11pt;color:navy;">&gt; washing really dirty carrots, then you can turn it down really slow and wash</span></div>
<div><span style="font-size:11pt;color:navy;">&gt; them.&nbsp; you can also be more gentle on produce that needs it.&nbsp; I spent way</span></div>
<div><span style="font-size:11pt;color:navy;">&gt; less than $400 for my whole washer, maybe you can build your own too.</span></div>
