Must remember this.... When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.
For your polish it doesn’t have to be Essie; just pick any color from any brand. It makes your nails hard as rocks and look fabulous. Winner: Sally nails it! P.S. This was also the first “hack” I found on Pinterest that actually worked. OH HAPPY DAY!
