Has anyone tried Green Bags?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I just bought a box of Green Bags...they were kind of expensive, but they are supposed to keep fruits and vegetables fresh longer? Unfortunately, I left them in my mom's car (along with a precious can of Pringles potato chips) so it may be a while before I can try them.

What are green bags?

Yes. My experience is that they work quite well. I was able to keep bananas for 2-3 weeks with them, vs. maybe 1 week without.

They're supposed to absorb the methane that fruits and vegetables give off. That's what makes them spoil. Instead, the methane is neutralized and you get a little bit of water on the inside of the bag. My mother uses a LOT more fruits and vegetables than I do and she thinks they're great as well.

They are bags to store produce in. They are supposed to absorb and remove ethlyene gas so that fruits and vegetables stay fresh for a much longer period of time. It says on the box that you can also preserve cut flowers longer by placing the bag over the arrangement at night.

That is interesting. I wonder what those bags are made of.

Are they reusable?

I haven't used them but my husbands mom does. I was very impressed. I came over one day and there was some bananas in the bag. I came over a few days later and they were still in the bag and looked fresh. I came over a weak later and they were still in the bag and looked fresh. I came over a couple days after that and they were still there looking good. I know she didn't get new ones cause well I asked and she always complains how she always buys bananas and no one eats them. Why does she buy them. I don't know but they sure did last a lot longer.

They are Debbie Meyer bags....I've used them for awhile now and they work great on everything I've tried...even your salad mixes last a long time using them.To re-use them,rinse them out and let them dry or dry with paper towels.In the box I got,there are 2 sizes.I want to say there were 20 bags for $9.88 at Wal-Mart...in my store they have them in the produce section also.

This is encouraging...I was stressing about the $9.98 price, but now it sounds like they are well worth the money. My boss teases me because I buy all this "As Seen on TV" stuff. (I found the Nu-Wave oven from the infomerical at Kohl's but it's still too expensive.)

I don't know how well the aqua globes work (I want them, too) but they sure are pretty on the commercial.
