Clearly Fresh Bags Review

I was sent these bags to try by a company called Clearly Fresh Bags. They made sure I had plenty as the packages come with 10 bags each. I must admit I am a little late in getting this review done because I thought I would be original and not use the bananas like they have on the package.

I thought we always have tomatoes laying around and they spoil before my husband can eat them. I thought, okay, here is the perfect opportunity to stretch those tomatoes! Little did I know, these bags perform so well, it took forever for the one in the bag to show any signs of distress and the one left on the counter was fading faster so I had to go ahead and stop the experiment.

Clearly you can see the tomato that was in the bag is the left one and the one on the right was the one left on the counter. I had put the tomato in the bag on June 23,2011 and today’s date is July 5,2011. The one left on the counter already has rotten spots on it and the one in the bag is still nice and pretty. I hope you can tell my husband is very happy because now he can have tomatoes that will hang around for awhile without having to go to the store every time he wants a sandwich or hamburger. Thank you Clearly Fresh Bags for allowing me to test these great bags for you!

Clearly Fresh® bags are large clear zip bags (12” X 14”),with a breathable 3 inch square membrane on one side. Each pack contains 10 bags. The reason the Clearly Fresh bags are unique is the use of BreatheWay technology. BreatheWay allows fresh fruits and vegetables to create their own ideal atmospheres for natural storage life extension.

For the most part, your fruits and veggies should last up to 50% longer than without the use of the bags. Do keep in mind that some fruits and veggies do spoil quicker than others like strawberries and it is best if you don’t wash them before putting them in the bags.

I knew this from using regular storage bags that if you wash and don’t get all the moisture off the fruit or veggie will spoil quicker.

Also, if you buy from a Farmers Market and the produce is fresh, it could be that the produce has been sitting for awhile out in the open. I do want to say that for the most part we buy organic tomatoes and they will spoil quicker than the others due to the farmer not spraying all the chemicals on them and the one in the bag did last longer than the one that did not.

I would recommend this to my friends and family because I think it would save you some money. If you eat alot of fruits and veggies this would definitely benefit you because it will make your produce last longer and less trips to the store is what I like the best especially with gas prices on the rise,we need all the help we can get to keep what food we do have at home healthy and beautiful to eat!

Thank you for sharing!! My Mom could certainly use these!! Will go and get a sample and give them to her--as for me--alas being single fresh fruit and veggies almost always go bad before I get a chance to eat them--
