Have you ever bought a beautiful head of lettuce from the farmer's market, only for it to wilt and spoil after a few short days in the fridge? With this simple and easy kitchen hack, your lettuce will stay fresh for up to two+ weeks, making your days of limp lettuce a thing of the past! The best part is, this hack works with all types of lettuce, making it a versatile hack to keep in your back pocket.


  • 1 Head of Lettuce


  • Start by washing and drying your lettuce, then carefully slice off the stem.
  • Next, wrap your lettuce head in a towel or paper towel.
  • Place the wrapped head of lettuce in a ziplock bag, and store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
  • The towel / paper towel will help to absorb any moisture, so that the head of lettuce will stay fresh for longer. Enjoy!
