WE all know how important it is to eat fruits and vegetables every day.
The only problem with fresh produce, however, is that they often spoil before we have a chance to eat them all.
A woman named Sandy DiTullio, known on TikTok as @shadiersandy, describes herself as “the real housewife who works outside the home” and has gained popularity thanks to her DIY and home hack videos.
She recently received almost 500,000 views for a clip where she shared a tip on how to stop bananas from turning brown so quickly.
Sandy claimed her method would “double, triple, maybe even quadruple” the fruit’s shelf life.
“If you have bananas that turn brown too quickly, do the following.”
She grabbed two paper towels, still attached to each other, and soaked them in water in the sink.
After barely ringing them, she folded the pieces lengthwise a few times so they were thick and long.
“And then you’re going to wrap it around the bananas like this,” she said while securing the banana stems with the wet towel.
Sandy then showed a bunch of bananas that had been hanging on the paper towel for a little over a week and they looked good as new – no dark spots or softness in sight.
She advised replacing the paper towel every few days to ensure freshness is maintained.
Users were excited to try the hack, with many adding that plastic wrap and aluminum foil around the stems produce the same results.
“Thanks for sharing. Will try,” one person commented.
“Sandy is what we trust,” added another.
