Kitchen Hacks: Fruits and vegetables will not dry for a long time in the fridge, just know this method


Tips and Tricks: Due to our busy lifestyle, we often buy vegetables and fruits for a week and keep them in the fridge. Mostly, we do this due to paucity of time and end up hoarding them all at once. Many people believe that when you keep vegetables in the fridge, they stay fresh for a long time and avoid rotting. But, many people do not know that some fruits and vegetables are such that when kept together, other vegetables and fruits can spoil earlier than you think. This happens because fruits and vegetables contain different types of enzymes and chemicals which if kept together, the other starts rotting quickly. In such a situation, it becomes necessary for everyone to know what kind of vegetables and fruits should be kept separately.

If you are also facing this kind of problem, then today in this article we will tell some such tips which will be useful for you.
