If you want to keep your vegetables and fruits in the fridge fresh for longer, there is a simple solution called the Fruit & Veg Savers. There are three discs of 8.5 x 0.5 cm that you have to place in the fridge, in the areas where you keep your veggies. You don’t have to use them all at a time, but one every month.
There is no information about the material the discs are made from but they are said to double or even triple the storage life of veggies, plus they are non-toxic and recyclable. They absorb the ethylene gas emitted by the fruits and vegetables as they ripen, slowing down the over-ripening process.
Using these discs in the fridge not only keeps the contents fresh for longer, but also saves money in time. You can find them online at Gizoo for £7.95.
