Ignoring your humidity sliders

You may have noticed that your veggie crisper drawers have little vents, and they’re there for a reason. Those are called humidity sliders. Opening them reduces the humidity in the drawers and closing them increases the humidity. Leafy items that wilt like romaine lettuce or spring mix need high humidity, and should be stored together, with the vent closed. Vegetables that rot like zucchini or mushrooms need low humidity, and should be stored with the vent open.
