Or in my case, washing everything in vinegar since I'm slightly obsessed. Well, along the lines of kitchen tricks, I stumbled across a great one the other day involving, yes, vinegar. My former boss (the same one who taught me to bathe my plants), sent me an email about this and it totally makes sense.

Washing Berries with Vinegar
Mix a solution of 1 part white vinegar (or cider vinegar) and 10 parts water. Add berries to the solution and swirl around. Rinse if you want, and then put the berries in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit, and as a result the lifespan is much longer. Brilliant!
