Top 7 Genius Hacks To Make Your Fresh Food Longer
1. Put paper towels in the salad drawer.
Lining your crisper with a few sheets of paper towel absorbs the condensation that the veggies generate as they chill. Excess moisture can make your fresh foods wilt much faster, so the paper keeps them fresher for longer AND it keeps your fridge cleaner without any extra effort—because no one deserves to spend their hard-earned Sunday wiping up cucumber gunk.
2. Don’t separate bananas before eating.
You may think you’re being super productive by packaging your bananas into day-to-day portions, but actually the trick to stop them going brown is to keep them together as long as possible. Wrap the stems of the bananas in cling wrap when you first buy them and only snap one off when you’re ready to eat it. This should give you 3-5 extra days of perfectly ripe banana joy.
