One TikTok user shared a brilliant hack for keeping vegetables fresh for longer and people are calling it “life-changing.”

The best part about this hack is that it keeps the vegetables fresh, even when they have begun to wilt and turn brown.

In the video, Alesha shows an old head of broccoli. It’s turning brown and looks like it’s ready for the compost. But instead of throwing it away, Alesha does something incredible.

She slices of a small part of the stem on the bottom and places the broccoli in a glass of water. She places the whole thing back in the fridge and waits. After some time has passed, she returns to the broccoli and it looks fresh as ever!

The trick is also supposed to work well on a number of fresh veggies, so don’t hesitate to use it when needed. It definitely beats having to throw lots and lots of food in the trash.


Good as new! 😊🥦 #lifehack #fyp

We are not surprised that this hack works so well, either. It’s just like the hack that we use to keep our flowers nice and fresh.
