This is why people put strawberries in salt water

Water and salt

Many people rinse their fruit under the tap before taking a bite. However, to ensure that the strawberries are also clean inside will take a little more effort. To remove worms from fruit, fill a bowl with water and add salt to it. When the salt has dissolved, dip the strawberries in the water. Then let the fruit soak for a few minutes to half an hour. Worms and other small insects crawl out of the strawberries into the salt bath.


There are numerous videos of people repeating this experiment on social media. The result is often the same: if you prefer not to eat insects with your strawberries, give them a salt bath. Many people have found that unsavory critters appear.
