I hate rotten potatoes.
And I hate paying good money for a bag of pototoes that just doesn't last.
I store them in a cool dry place.
I make sure the open part of the bag is "down" just like it tells you to.
And still, they go bad.
I saw a few of these packets of silica gel in a box I was about to throw out and I realized that the silica gel keeps moisture at bay.
It keeps things dry.
So I added a couple to the basket of potatoes.
AND IT WORKED!!!!!
No rotten potatoes!!!!!!
