Rescue your Berries!

Are you ever frustrated after you pay $4.99 for a package of berries only to get them home and they are moldy?  I really thought it was just me, or where I was buying my berries, but then a friend of mine gave me the best tip!  I am so excited to share with you another wonderful use of my favorite cleaning device and salad dressing...Vinegar!  I switched to vinegar as a cleaning agent about 6 months ago and I have been really happy with it.  I dislike the scent of all the other synthetic cleaners and I can only imagine how harmful it is for your health.  I am glad to know I can use vinegar to preserve my berries as well.

Here is how you do it:

1 part Vinegar (Apple Cider is best) to 10 Parts Water.  Rinse the berries with your vinegar mixture and the vinegar will kill all the Mold Spores and bacteria that ruins your precious berries.

Hope you try out this fabulous tip!  I look forward to hearing any tips you all have!


  1. That's a great tip! I hate how quickly they get moldy. Such a waste of money. Thanks Ruthie.

  2. How are you so smart- did you share this tip with mom? I'm doing this to all our blackberries this morning!!!
