The stickiness is similarly stubborn as trying to clean up pine sap, where regular soap often will not clean it up. Instead, try using mineral oil to clean up. You might have mineral oil in the kitchen for oiling cutting boards. ("Baby oil" is a form of mineral oil that also has fragrances added.) Simply rub the sticky utensils with a towel and mineral oil ...

If you want to end up with a liquid or jelly consistency you can simply mash the fruit, maybe run it through a sieve to remove seeds, and add both sugar and lemon juice. Most sorbets are made this way because the flavors are muted when they are ice cold so ...

One way to do this would be to create a fruit slurry in a blender, mix in an enzyme (Pectinex), then clarify. Your highest yield would come from a centrifuge, but you can also easily use a method called agar clarification, with a fairly good yield, to end up with a clear liquid. You can then sweeten this liquid if desired. You could also thicken it with ...

Your assumption that "if the food industry does it, I should be able to do it too" is wrong. The food industry doesn't do it. It uses engineered flavors, which ...

Wash them right before. Especially apples. When you get these at the grocery store they have a coat of light oil or wax on them that keeps them from drying out. That is a good thing and safe it eat, but also fine to wash off.

I'm guessing you aren't storing them somewhere sterile, so they will get dirty again during storage, and you'll just have to wash them again. The other issue ...
