Depending on the fruit or vegetable, you can freeze, refrigerate, or even leave them on the counter.

Wash Them Right  

Even if you peel your fruits and veggies, it's always a good idea to wash them before eating them.

Although the possibilities are low, it's best to be safe and careful. Washing, on the other hand, only removes dirt, which is never nice to eat. Most fruits and vegetables benefit from a simple rinse under cold running water, but washing the leafy greens is a taskSeparate the leaves from the head and soak them in cold water for about five minutes to wash leafy greens. Swirl the leaves gently to release the dirt, then lift them out of the water and place them in a colander to dry.
