Keep fresh for longer bags

13 replies 3.2K views
Has anyone experience of the keep fresh for longer bags. Do they really work and are they worth the money. I read they are single use but can you reuse them, if not they will be very expensive. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I buy the ones for cheese from the £1 shops . Have used them for years and they stop the mould growing on the edge of cheddar and the edge getting hard.

    I bought some from L*k*l*nd about 6 years ago and they are still going strong.

    I've used the green ones from lakelnd for years for fruit, salad, veg either in the fridge or out of it.  They work really well, keeping everything fresher for longer. I then swish them about in hot soapy water and peg up to dry.  They last for ages.

    I find wrapping veg tightly in foil and putting in the bottom of the fridge keeps them nice and fresh.
    Normal people worry me.

    Or by storing washed and throughly dried F&V in a zipbag lined with kitchen roll. Works for delicate items such as berries as well as tough nuts like carrots.

    I had no joy at all with the Lakeland ones a few years ago, and got a refund. Maybe I was already storing the veg in a way which kept them fresh, but the Lakeland bags made no difference for me.

    I find the ones from any source work very well for two uses, after that they no longer absorb moisture. I certainly wouldn't use them for fruit & veg after that- they are fine then as standard poly bags.

     I am working my way through a stack of Tesco own brand keep fresh bags which must be a cancelled order as they appeared in a cheapie shop with trade name inked out!
    I wouldn't bother paying for the L name- the ones from £ shop as work well.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!
