So, basically, it is the mold spores and bacteria that ruin the strawberry fun for you. To fight this you can follow this simple, 4-step procedure:
- Pour 1/2 cup white vinegar and 2 1/2 cups of water in a bowl.
- Next, soak strawberries in this mixture for only a few minutes. And meanwhile, watch the water turn all grimy and ugly as the bacteria comes off of the strawberries.
- After that, dry the strawberries very thoroughly by using paper towels. you can choose to either put them in a salad spinner or let them dry in a colander. Either way, make sure that they get perfectly dried, or else you risk the mold spread again.
- Put the strawberries back in the refrigerator on top of paper towels.
