An Australian organisation guru has shared her simple hack for getting lettuce heads to last longer in the fridge – as prices for Cos and Iceberg lettuce reach as much as $7 each. 

Anita Birges, who heads Mise en Place Professional Organising, recommended detaching the lettuce’s core and covering the rest of the head in aluminium foil before placing it in the fridge.

She said the trick was a ‘must-know’ in a video posted to her popular Instagram and TikTok pages.

‘If you want to extend the life of your lettuce and make cutting up a salad a breeze – then this is the hack for you,’ said Anita.

Although the process calls for removing the core of the lettuce, the hack does not require a knife.

‘First, slam your lettuce down onto a chopping board and then remove the core,’ said Anita.

She added, ‘Wrap your lettuce in aluminium foil before putting it in the fridge to keep it fresher for longer and stop it wilting.’

The video received over 100,000 views across both platforms and hundreds of comments from people commending Anita’s tip and offering tricks of their own.

‘I wrap mine in a paper towel – works super well too,’ said one woman.

‘The aluminium foil trick works for celery as well!’ added another. ‘Most leafy greens should do the trick.’

A third added, ‘This hack is excellent. I tried it and got two weeks of fresh lettuce.’
