Review and Giveaway: Bluapple
I was recently given the opportunity to review a great money-saving device in my home - The Bluapple! The Bluapple is a small, blue plastic apple that goes in the refrigerator with your fruits and veggies and helps to keep them fresher, longer!
How Does the BluApple Work?
Ethylene gas is given off naturally by fruits and vegetables as a signaling mechanism in order to coordinate uniform ripening. However, once concentrated in your refrigerator or other storage areas, the presence of ethylene gas continues to speed up ripening and hasten spoilage.
The BluApple is designed to provide effective ethylene gas absorption for three months in a typical home refrigerator produce bin or storage container. The active ingredient does not "wear out", but continues to absorb ethylene until it has reached its capacity. A One Year Refill Kit rounds out the BluApple ethylene gas management product line, allowing consumers to reuse BluApples and not add them to landfills.
We all know fresh fruits and veggies are important, but they are also SO expensive! Even with a household of 5 adults, we sometimes have a hard time eating all the produce we buy before it can go bad. The Bluapple is helping us with that problem! I just put the Bluapple in the crisper drawer with whatever produce I get from the store or our local Farmer's Market, and it absorbs the ethylene gas that produce creates as it ripens. My household loves strawberries, and we are lucky enough to live near a strawberry farm which sells fresh, just-picked strawberries from a local stand in the spring and summer. We buy a gallon bucket of strawberries at a time, but we cannot eat them all at once, and we all know strawberries go bad very quickly. So this time I put the Bluapple on top of the bucket after I cut the first batch of strawberries, and we still had fresh strawberries a couple days later!
My household also loves raw veggies, like carrots, celery, radishes and cucumbers. I tend to buy some of each every week at the store, and now I know that they will not go bad since they just go in the crisper drawer with the Bluapple!
I am thrilled with my Bluapple, and I just know you are going to be, too.
