    1. The comment said " WOW - great reminder". I removed the content by accident, sorry Christine!

      Yes - it is gross to see what is in the water when you are done

  2. I really need to do this more. I rinse them off under running water but I don't know how clean they get.

    1. I used to do the same; then I read that soaking in water/vinegar can help them last longer. So I did - and was amazed at the bottom of the bowl afterwards - gross.

  4. Yikes, I never think of strawberries as being so dirty. I always just sprayed them in a colander, but I will be more diligent now. How much vinegar did you put in the soaking water Ashley?

    1. I filled the bowl with water and about 2tbsp (maybe slightly more) vinegar. Then i transfer them to a collander and rinse off

  5. EEwww, just never realized how much dirt was on the berries. Usually just a quick rinse but that is about to change.

    Patricia, Sugar & Spice & All Things ? Nice
