Don't Rinse Fruits & Veggies Until Ready to Use
Don't rinse off fruits and vegetables until you are ready to use them - they start going bad right away. Let them stay in their fresh state if you want them to last a few days. Store them the way they should be - in the fridge or in the cupboard, or on the counter, then rinse immediately prior to use. If you wash off grapes or tomatoes or green beans or cherries, etc. - you had better plan to eat or cook them that day or they start going downhill. You also start to lose nutrients from the fruits and vegetables after rinsing.
