A trick to perking up carrots and other veggies that have wilted/got a bit soft is to place the carrots in a bowl of cold water in the fridge overnight. For spinach/asparagus, place in a tall upright container with fresh cold water in the fridge. You'll see a noticeable result :) Happy cooking!

I buy the big containers of spinach and spring mix. To prolong their life, I wrap two paper towels into them by gently lifting the bottom and then covering the top. I will also wrap a damp paper towel around my romaine lettuce to keep ithe leaves from turning brown as well. Works great!
I never have wilted or slimy spinach or lettuce and never have to through it out!
