Are you like many other Indiana shoppers who let their vegetables go bad in their fridge while making a midnight run to Taco Bell? Don't feel bad, we all do it. In honesty, if you really take the time to cook the fresh vegetables that are in your crisper, it's a great way to eat healthy and save money. But vegetables going bad in the fridge is an issue we all deal with.

But how is a paper towel supposed to help keep your veggies last longer? Here's how they break it down for you:

Most fruits and vegetables, including kale and zucchini, release water over time. This moisture has nowhere to go and gets trapped in the crisper drawer, leading to sad, brown produce. Paper towels absorb the moisture, slowing the process of veggies falling limp. Now, you'll have plenty of fresh veggies on hand to make all kinds of summer salads.

Now the key to keeping them fresh is remembering to change out the paper towels frequently because if you don't, they'll get soggy from the absorbed moisture and you'll look like a bafoon with moldy vegetables and wet paper towels in their fridge.

Give this little trick a try and let us know if your veggies last longer.
