Seven Hacks To Keep Common Foods From Going Off

Store Fruits And Vegetables Properly

Keep fruits and vegetables in separate drawers in your refrigerator.Use airtight containers or produce bags to store cut fruits and vegetables.

Vinegar For Berries

Rinse berries in a solution of one part vinegar to three parts water to prevent mold growth. Rinse thoroughly before eating.

Freeze Extra Herbs

Chop fresh herbs and place them in ice cube trays with water or olive oil. Freeze them for easy use in cooking.

Revive Stale Bread

Sprinkle stale bread with a little water, then heat it in the oven to make it crisp again.

Keep potatoes Fresh

Store potatoes in a cool, dark place to prevent sprouting. Avoid storing them near onions, as they can cause each other to spoil faster.


Squeeze lemon juice over cut avocados and wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container to slow down browning.
