You might think that by just putting your fruits and vegetables in a fridge drawer you will keep it fresh for use. While there is some truth in refrigerating your fruits and vegetables to keep them fresh, there is also a high amounts of moisture that the fruits and vegetables will be exposed to that will quicken their ripening and this reduces their actual durability. There is a simple trick that will keep your fruits and vegetables fresh even when refrigerated for a considerable period of time.
This trick involves the use of three regular sponges. All you need to do is to open your fridge and take out your fruits and vegetables from the drawer. Next, you place three new regular sponges at the bottom of the drawer and place the fruits and vegetables on top of these sponges. When you check the sponges after some time, you will notice that the sponges would have absorbed any excess moisture and water from the fruits and vegetables. The consequence of this, is that your fruits and vegetables will be fresh all through their lifespan. They will not get spoil quickly and their taste will be preserved.
So you do not have to worry about rotting fruits and veggies even though they are refrigerated, with this simple trick. You can stock up for Christmas and the New year celebrations without the fear of losing the freshness of your fruits and veggies which you may want to use in making fruit and vegetable salad or Cole Slaw to spice up your holiday meal.
