Garlic is an indispensable ingredient in cooking, giving dishes a piquant and bright flavor. But improper storage quickly spoils the vegetable.

By following a few rules, you can keep garlic in good condition for longer. OBOZREVATEL has collected simple tips to help you do this.

The most common mistake that housewives make is putting garlic in the refrigerator. This will only speed up the process of product spoilage. Instead, place the vegetable in a cool, dark, and dry place. It can be a basement or an attic.

Garlic needs air, so store it in a cloth bag. The natural material allows oxygen to pass through and prevents it from drying out.

Never cut the stems of garlic if you want it to stay fresh for a long period. This can lead to rapid spoilage. To keep other fruits and vegetables in good condition, do not place garlic next to them because it releases ethylene, which accelerates the process of food spoilage.

Garlic will be fresh and juicy if you do not wash it with water and avoid moisture.
