Put vinegar on your berries

That may sound nasty at first, but you’ll use such a small amount that you won’t taste the vinegar, and you’ll rinse it off anyway. The idea behind rinsing your berries with water and a bit of vinegar is that the vinegar kills off bacteria and mold spores that love to grow on berries – and you know that when one berry grows mold, it spreads through the basket rapidly. After rinsing these, put them in a container lined with paper towel with the lid slightly ajar. This will absorb moisture from the berries and let them breathe. If you have a clamshell container, that will work, too – just poke holes in it for ventilation.
