1. Preserving citrus with sand

    When you buy citrus you should always rinse it in a 10-to-1 water to bleach ratio (10 parts water, 1 part bleach) and let them air dry.

    To store citrus longer you can get a 5 gallon bucket and fill it with clean sand.  Bury the clean citrus in the sand and lightly pack it down.

    The sand fills the pores of the citrus and it takes longer to go bad.

  3. Keep avocados from browning

    If you cut an avocado in half and want to save for later, put a little lemon juice on it.  This will keep it from browning for several days.
