Wash lettuce when you come from the store. Shake it a little to remove excess water then put a clean folded tea towel into a large plastic bag (I use a plastic grocery bag). Insert lettuce and twist so no air can get in and put the bag in fridge. This keeps the lettuce crisp for at least a week. Since we have salad everyday, I always check the tea towel and replace it with a clean dry one if it gets damp.
I went and bought those debbie mayer bags the green ones and they work. You can save your veggies a bit longer. I don't get lettuce that much not really into salads but when I do I use the bags. Worth the money and you can get them anywhere.
I like this idea! It's reusing the grocery bag and tea towels can be reused. Much better than buying those green bags which after using, just go to the landfill. I do use those bags when traveling but when home I sure like your idea better.
I love this idea - so much more eco-friendly than using paper towels for this purpose! Oh, yes - and don't forget to core your lettuce first by hitting the head of lettuce, core end down, of course, on the counter, then giving the core itself a sharp twist. Just like screwing off a bottle cap!
