spin-n-store washing and storage bag
We happened to have some fresh-picked green leaf lettuce from our garden. We gave the greens a good washing, shook them off a bit then placed them in the Spin 'n Stor. We bunched up the neck of the bag and gave it a few good twirls. We noticed that the bag released a little bit of water onto the kitchen floor but nothing catastrophic. This may be an activity best for outside. This could be a fun job for the children if they help out in the kitchen.
We found our first spin didn't quite dry the lettuce enough so we poured off the accumulated water and tried again. After the 2nd round the lettuce was dry enough for salad making. We had more lettuce than we needed for our salad so we tied the bag off with the provided twist-tie and popped it in the frig. We checked the remaining lettuce after 3 days and it was still crisp.
The manufacturer states that the bags can be reused. They are pretty light-weight but as long as you weren't too over-zealous in your spinning they should hold up for at least 2-4 uses.
