Moisture slowly evaporates from the surface of the bag to keep both the bag and the vegetables “breathing.” A slightly moist bag keeps vegetables crisp, often several days beyond storage in either a crisper drawer or plastic bag.
Turn them inside out and launder regularly. You can dry them in a hot dryer or hang them to dry in the sun.
If you want to sanitize them thoroughly let them sit in 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1/8 cup of household vinegar for an hour.
If your bag gets stained you can remove the stain with an oxygen bleach or make your own environmentally friendly stain remover with 1/2 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 2 Tablespoons of Arm and Hammer Washing Soda. Add enough hot water to the hydrogen peroxide/washing soda solution to cover bag and let sit 24 hours.
