    Default Tupperware fans. Keep lettuce fresh

    Ok so I have one of those big round fridge smart container I put my lettuce in.
    But my lettuce leaves (I buy mix leaves) and they are going soggy in the container??? Why???
    What am I doing wrong with the two little buttons. I though these container keeps them fresh.
    Tips please on keeping lettuce fresh.

    Are you washing the lettuce first? Maybe you are not draining it enough.

    My mum puts paper towel in the bottom of hers to soak up any moisture.

    You need to open the seal and wipe off any moisture and also drain any moisture from the bottom of the container too for the first few days.

    It's not a good idea to put paper towel in the bottom of the fridgesmarts cos they're designed with the ripple bottom to keep the vegies up out of the moisture. If you line it with paper towel then the vegies are sitting on wet paper towel which Kinda defeats the purpose of spending $45+ on Tupperware

    No I'm not washing the lettuce first. I was doing the paper towel thing and that was getting soggy too.
    Ok leave the two buttons open? Maybe that's why. I was closing in cause I thought I was locking in freshness. Ok will open and try

    Different fruit and veg have different "breathing" requirements. The two vents need to be opened or closed depending on what you store in the container. I bought some fridgesmart containers some years back when they came with magnets and instructions on what to do with vents - according to my magnet lettuce should have one vent open and one closed

    I've seen the magnets for sale on ebay if you want to know about storing other veg, but you can probably google and find the same info.
