How to Store Your Food So It Lasts Longer

Helpful household tip site Gomestic teaches us how to store our food so it will last longer. Here’s one tip we didn’t know:

Organize fruits and veggies: We often toss produce into crispers together, but apples and some other fruits give off gas called ethylene that speeds ripening in vegetables. So store them separate, so vegetables don’t ripen too fast

What? Apples are ruining our veggies with secret gases? Damn it, Apples!
