6. Clean The Bok Choy Two Or More Times

Bok choy can be really dirty.
Fill the bowl containing the bok choy with water.
Don't fill the bowl with water at the top to prevent the bok choy from falling down.
Pick up some bok choy and then drop the bok choy back into the water. Repeat about three to five times.
Using the pick up and drop technique, water is being moved around the bowl. The power of the moving water removes the dirt from the bok choy.
You may have to directly rub the bok choy to remove the dirt.
Place the bok choy into another bowl (left side of photo).
Repeat to clean all the bok choy.
The dirt removed from the bok choy is on the bottom of the bowl (right side of photo), the bowl that contained the cut bok choy.
Dump the water from the bowl outside the home or apartment, rinse the bowl again to remove any remaining dirt, and fill the bowl with clean water. The reason why the water should be dumped outside is to prevent the dirt from clogging the plumbing pipes.
Suggestion: Use a taller bowl or pot to clean the bok choy because the taller height separates the bok choy and the dirt settling on the bottom better.
