Fresh fruits and vegetables are delicious and packed with essential nutrients. However, improper storage can cause them to lose their freshness and appeal quickly. By mastering the proper storage techniques, you can significantly extend the shelf life of your produce, ensuring you enjoy the freshest flavours at all times.

This article will share some practical storage methods and highlight the benefits of using Durbl's sustainable silicone bags to help you achieve maximum freshness.

I. Tips for Storing Fruits
1. Strawberries
Strawberries are delicate and juicy but highly perishable. To keep strawberries fresh:
Avoid washing them before storage.
Place the strawberries in a durbl silicone bag and store them in the refrigerator. The bag's excellent sealing and moisture-proof properties can significantly extend the freshness of the strawberries.
If the strawberries have dirt on them, rinse them just before eating.

2. Apples
Apples can be stored at room temperature for a while, but to extend their freshness, they are best kept in the refrigerator's fruit drawer.

To prevent the ethylene gas released by apples from affecting other fruits, place the apples in a Durbl silicone bag. The bag's sealing capability effectively isolates ethylene gas, slowing the ripening of different fruits.

3. Bananas
Bananas should not be stored in the refrigerator, as cold temperatures can accelerate blackening. To prolong their freshness, hang them in a well-ventilated place away from direct sunlight.

If bananas are already ripe, peel and slice them, place them in a Durbl silicone bag, and freeze them for future use in smoothies or baking.

II. Tips for Storing Vegetables
1. Leafy Greens
Leafy greens like spinach and lettuce are prone to wilting. To keep them fresh, wash and dry them with a paper towel, then store them in a durbl silicone bag in the refrigerator. The bag's sealing properties prevent moisture loss, maintaining the crispness of the greens.


2. Carrots and Celery
To reduce moisture loss, carrots and celery should have their leaves removed before storage. Then, please place them in a Durbl silicone bag, seal it, and store it in the refrigerator. The bag's durability and sealing properties effectively prevent dehydration, keeping the vegetables fresh and crisp.

3. Tomatoes
Tomatoes should not be stored in the refrigerator, as cold temperatures can alter their texture and flavour. Store tomatoes at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. If you have cut tomatoes, refrigerate them in a Durbl silicone bag to prevent moisture loss and cross-contamination.
