Method 1 Method 1 of 3: Cleaning Your Grapes with Water
To rinse your grapes with cold water add the grapes that you wish to serve into a calendar.
Run your grapes under cold water, gently massaging them with your fingers. If you wish to remove them from the stems, you can do that at this time. Be sure to turn your grapes so that they all get rinsed with the cold water.
Before you are done rinsing them, make sure to run all of your groups under the cold water and thoroughly rinse them off.
While your grapes are still in the calendar, sit them over a towel and allow your grapes to drip dry for a few minutes before you remove them. Add your grapes to a clean towel and pat dry gently. Now your grapes are ready to serve.
Method 2 Method 2 of 3: Soaking Grapes in Vinegar and Water
To wash grapes in vinegar and water you can start by filling a bowl with three parts water and one part vinegar. This means if you are using 3 cups of water, you should use one cup of vinegar.
Swish around in your bowl to combine the two ingredients, then add your grapes and allow them to sit in the vinegar water for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. You can allow the grapes to sit in the vinegar water up to 30 minutes if your grapes are particularly dirty. You can also take your fingers and gently rub the grapes clean while they are submerged in the vinegar water.
Note: if you prefer to not submerge your grapes in vinegar water, you can fill a spray bottle with three parts water one part vinegar, and spray your grapes, then rinse off in cold water.
Remove your grapes from the bowl and place them into a colander. Rinse thoroughly using cold water. Allow your grapes to dry and then enjoy.
