Keep Your Food Fresh

Food is one of life’s most precious commodities. We spend a lot of time and money on it, so it should be treated with the same care as our other possessions. But many people don’t realize how easy it is to keep your food fresh for longer by following these simple tips:

Airtight Containers

Airtight containers are a great way to keep your food fresh. They help prevent moisture from getting in and making your food go bad, so you can keep it longer.

Here are some examples of airtight containers:

  • Ziploc freezer bags (the plastic ones) can be used for storing small amounts of dry foods like flour and sugar. These are also good for storing snacks like chips or cookies because they’re easy to open and close when they’re cold enough.
  • Plastic storage boxes with lids will work well if you want to store larger amounts of dry goods such as grains, flour, etc. since these come with lids that fit snugly over the top opening so no air escapes while being stored inside!

Silicone Stretch Lids

Silicone stretch lids are a great way to keep food fresh. They’re made from silicone, which is non-porous and can withstand high temperatures without breaking down or becoming damaged. This makes them useful for sealing containers that need to last through long storage periods, like soups or stews.

If you’re frequently making food in bulk quantities and storing it in the refrigerator, then you’ll find that plastic wrap loses its effectiveness after just a few days — even if you don’t use it for wrapping food itself! Silicone stretch lids are more durable than plastic wrap because they’re made from silicone rubber instead of the plastic film; however, this means there’s less flexibility when using them as packing material (which isn’t necessarily bad).

Tissue Paper with Small Holes Punched In It

You can use tissue paper to keep your food fresh. The best way to do this is by punching holes in it and then covering them with a small piece of tape. To make sure that your fruit or vegetable doesn’t dry out, you will also want to cover the holes with another piece of tape as well.

You can find tissue paper at most grocery stores, but if you don’t have access to one nearby then I recommend purchasing some from Amazon or eBay so that it arrives quickly!

Use Foil to Keep Your Food Fresh for Longer

  • Use foil to keep your food fresh.
  • Wrap food in foil to keep it warm, or cover dishes with it for a longer shelf life.
  • Instead of using a plastic wrap that can be difficult to clean and can make your fridge smell like a locker room after being out of use for too long, use aluminum foil. This material has been used by cooks for centuries because it’s sturdy enough to withstand high temperatures (upwards of 500F), but also flexible enough to fit inside containers without tearing them apart when you’re done using them again later on down the line!

Use a Plastic Wrap to Prevent Foods From Becoming Soggy

Plastic wrap is a great way to keep food fresh. It’s a great choice for covering bowls and plates, but it can also be used to cover food in the refrigerator or other storage containers.

BPA-free plastic wrap works best because it doesn’t release chemicals into your food that could cause unpleasant reactions in your body. This type of plastic wrap is available at most grocery stores and pharmacies for about $2 per roll (or more).

You should make sure you’re using BPA-free plastic when covering bowls or plates with plastic wrap because these products are often made from PVC/polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which has been linked with cancerous tumors in animal studies over time.


Apples are one of the most popular fruits to buy and for good reason. They’re delicious and nutritious, but like any other food item in your home, they can become contaminated with bacteria if stored improperly.

  • Store apples in a cool, dry place away from other fruits (especially potatoes). If you’re storing them at home, make sure they’re out of direct sunlight as well.
  • Don’t store apples with onions—the two items may react negatively to each other’s sulfur compounds by causing an adverse reaction when combined.* Do not store bananas near oranges because both fruits contain ethylene gas which causes fruit ripening.* Do not keep citrus fruits together either; citrus rinds often absorb moisture from their surroundings which causes them to rot faster than usual.* Also avoid keeping potatoes near any kind of food product containing starch such as dried beans or rice


You can keep bananas at room temperature for up to 7 days, but after that, they start to get mushy and brown. Bananas are best stored in a fruit bowl or other container with an airtight lid. If you want to keep them longer than that, put them in the freezer!

Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables are a great source of fiber, vitamins A and C, and other nutrients. They’re also high in antioxidants that help fight cancer by inhibiting the growth of free radicals—those unstable molecules that can damage your cells and cause disease. To keep broccoli fresh for up to 7 days:

  • Store in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator (or another area where there’s room). This will help maintain its crunchy texture while keeping it safe from turning into mushy messes when stored for long stretches at room temperature.
  • Place all other vegetables together so that they don’t get buried by them during storage! If you don’t have space for this step, then just make sure no one puts anything near each other before putting them away for later use; otherwise, it’ll ruin everything else because some things smell really bad when eaten after being stored next door all day long without any ventilation options whatsoever…

Dark, leafy greens like spinach, chard, and kale

Dark, leafy greens like spinach, chard, and kale are best stored in the refrigerator. They will keep just as long if you leave them out at room temperature (the recommended range is 40-50 degrees F) but they’ll lose their color and nutrients faster.

If you don’t have room for all of your fresh produce on your countertops or in containers, try storing some of it in the freezer—just make sure that if you do freeze any food items from this list they’re labeled as “do not refreeze.”


  • Mushrooms are best stored in a brown paper bag.
  • Mushrooms should be kept in a cool, dry place.
  • Do not refrigerate mushrooms; they will become mushy after being stored in the refrigerator for too long. Instead, store them on your kitchen counter or table where they will stay at room temperature (it’s okay if you forget to move them into the refrigerator).
  • Avoid plastic bags because they can absorb odors and moisture from other foods near them—in other words, they’re not ideal for keeping your food fresh!

Food storage doesn’t have to be hard.

You can keep your food fresh for longer with the right methods. Here are five ways:

  • airtight containers, silicone stretch lids, and tissue paper with small holes punched in them are all good options for keeping your food fresh. Make sure they’re closed tightly and stored on their sides so they don’t leak during transit or while you’re cooking them!
  • foil is another great way to keep your food fresh without using plastic wrap or wraps that may end up breaking down over time (which means more waste). Just make sure you only use enough foil so that there’s no gap between layers; otherwise any moisture will seep through into other foods inside!


I hope these tips have helped you understand food storage and what to do next. The most important thing is to keep your food fresh as long as possible, and this can be achieved by following the tips laid out here. Remember that even small changes like using a different lid or storing it in a different container can make all the difference!
