We have all stored
vegetables in our refrigerator's crisper and either forgotten
about them or discovered they didn't last quite as long as
anticipated. And it isn't that much fun to have to clean them
out after something has gone bad in them! However, this is
a great way to help keep your fridge clean while making those
inevitable clean ups a breeze.
Line your vegetable
crispers with shelf liners. You may have some left over from
another project, or you can pick up rolls of discontinued
styles at a deep discount. It doesn't matter if the shelf
liner colors or pattern doesn't match your kitchen because
they will be covered up with fruits and vegetables.
When some of your
vegetables have gone bad, you can pull out the entire shelf
lined from the bottom and toss it out, leaving you with the
crisper needing only a quick disinfecting wash, rather than
the complete scrub down it would have needed otherwise.
