    Default Have they just opened a time capsule

    My hubby loves to watch qvc weekends
    Especially gardening with RJ
    Why I don't know as all his stuff is over priced
    And the same as other brands I buy a lot cheaper
    For example Soil and bird seed
    Well before his show they had the spinning mop
    Geez I bought one of them from qvc donkies years ago
    It does not seem any different was rubbish then so no doubt rubbish now

    I have not purchased from them for a while well not since my Rhoderdendron
    But as I was fed up with fruit and veg not lasting
    Went for those food storage bags
    Believing the hype
    Well I wish I had not bothered
    The bags fill with condensation from the moisture in fruit and veg
    So although things stay fresher for 1-2 days
    Not the length of time they state they go to mush around day three
    The other problem is my fridge smell like fish
    I cleaned it all out thinking something might have spilt
    And got trapped
    But the smell was still there
    It was coming from the blue bags they say are for cheese
    I am now using the bags to store dry stuff in and threw out the blue ones
    Gone back to my faithful Ikea bags
    I would have returned them but I had them over a month before trying them
    Has anyone else got them if so have you had problems with them?
    You don't have to be as mad as a box of frogs to be here but it helps:mysmilie_13:

    I fell into the trap of buying those bags as well. I bought them mainly for bananas, but found they don't keep anywhere near as well as the bags they come in from Tesco, especially the 'Keep Me' range. Everything else seems to keep ok in the fridge anyway, or at least as long as it is s'posed to. Normally when I buy watercress from Morrison's on a Saturday the best before date is usually the following Tuesday, and it does tend to last that long.

    Mind you we don't have a freezer, but a larder, which is a fridge without an icebox. I reckon the temperature is more consistent that it was when we had a fridge with an icebox. The least said about the fridge freezer we had the better. Most of the time the fridge itself was iced up, as well as the freezer. Much better off with the larder and a small chest freezer.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side. My Blog
