6 Ways to Make Your Fruits Fresh for Longer
Introduction: What is the Best Way to Keep Fruit Fresh?
The best way to keep fruit fresh is by storing it in the refrigerator. Fruit is one of the most perishable foods and should be eaten within a few days of purchase. The cold temperature of the fridge slows down the ripening process so you can enjoy your fruit for a longer period.
If you are not able to refrigerate your fruit, then you should store it in a cool, dark place such as a pantry or basement. You can also freeze your fruit for up to six months, preserving its taste and nutrition. However, this method does not slow the ripening process like refrigeration.
There are many different ways that you can preserve fresh fruit and make it last a day.
1. Add a teaspoon of salt to a cup of water and soak the fruit in it for 10 minutes.
2. Cut up the watermelon into cubes, sprinkle them with salt, and put them in an airtight container on the fridge for about 24 hours.
3. Soak some strawberries in water with some lemon juice for 10 minutes before putting them in the fridge or freezer to make them last longer.

4. Plastic Bag & Garlic Clove
The purpose of this article is to provide you with an easy and inexpensive way to get rid of the garlic smell from your hands.
We are going to be using a plastic bag and a garlic clove. The first thing you need to do is cut the garlic clove in half and then place it in the plastic bag. Then, you will need to put your hands inside the plastic bag and shake your hands. This will cause the cloves of garlic to rub off on the inside of the plastic bag, which will then absorb all of that garlicky smell!
*Note: Garlic can also be used if one cannot access a plastic bag.
5. Use a Dehumidifier or Air Purifier in the Area of Storage
Humidity is a measure of the amount of water vapor in the air. The higher the humidity, the more water vapor there is per unit volume.
Fruits are sensitive to humidity and need to be stored in a dry atmosphere so that they do not spoil or rot.
Dehumidifiers or air purifiers can be used to maintain dryness in the storage area by extracting moisture from the air.
The use of dehumidifiers and air purifiers is recommended for storing fruit for long periods of time because it prevents spoilage and promotes healthy growth.
6. Keep in the Fridge or Cabinet Away From Sunlight!!!( keywords – fridge vs cabinet storage of fruits and vegetables )
The refrigerator is the best place to store fruits and vegetables. The fridge has a temperature of 40°F or below, which is perfect for maintaining the freshness of produce.
The cabinet is not a good place to store produce because it can get too warm. The cabinet has a temperature that fluctuates between 60°F and 80°F, which can cause produce to spoil faster than in the fridge.
