Use the mesh bags in place of disposable plastic produce bags. These bags are ideal for thicker skinned produce like apples and oranges, or produce that needs ventilation, like onions, potatoes, or garlic.
Place the Items into the Fridge
Take the bags with refrigerated produce straight out of the tote bag and place into the vegetable drawer.
Place Items on the Counter
Other produce can be placed right onto the counter to ripen or to sit. A good rule is that if the produce isn't refrigerated at the store, don't refrigerate it at home.
or Hang Up for Ventilation
Alternatively, for produce that needs ventilation, they can be hung up in a pantry to air dry.
