Washing vegetables and fruits before eating them is a common practice. However, sometimes there are exceptions to this rule, because you want to eat a cucumber or tomato directly from the garden.

For example, a well-known blogger recently posted a video on TikTok showing what you will get in your mouth if you eat broccoli without washing it first, the Mirror reports.
