Storing food such as fruit and vegetables in the fridge is not always an easy task.

First of all, you need to take a number of precautions to prevent fruit and vegetables from rotting in a short space of time. For example, it is advisable to wash the drawers in which food is stored at least once a week. Lining the vegetable drawer with paper towels, which are normally used in the kitchen, is also a perfect method as it has the property of being able to absorb moisture. Another method that should not be underestimated is packing fruit and vegetables in paper bags, which can facilitate air recycling.

With these simple precautions, fruit and vegetables will stay fresh for longer

There is a trick, a real ace up your sleeve, which is able to keep food fresh for as long as possible. Yes, an ordinary sponge can be essential to keep food fresh for longer and therefore save some money. Before using the sponge, it is necessary to clean the fridge well to remove all traces of dirt and then dry everything perfectly. Then all you have to do is place two sponges in the fruit and vegetable container. With this trick, spoiled fruit and vegetables will become an unpleasant distant memory, precisely because the sponge absorbs the moisture caused by the low temperature of the fridge. It is of course important to remember not to set the fridge too low, as this could damage the food prematurely. At this point, all you have to do is use the sponges and then enjoy the results.

Good luck with your work.
