Use the muslin bags in place of disposable plastic produce bags. These bags are ideal for leafy greens like spinach or lettuce, as well as thinner skinned produce, like cauliflower or berries.
Rinse off Leafy Greens at Home
This will wash off any residue from the store and transportation, as well as give the greens a kick of moisture.
Place the Damp Greens Back in the Bag
The residual moisture on the greens is soaked up by the bag, which will keep them fresh and crisp longer than a plastic bag. The damp bag has the same effects as wrapping the produce in a wet paper towel.
Store Other Produce in a Dry Bag
Any other produce that needs refrigeration will do just fine in a dry muslin bag in the fridge.
