Keeping delicate greens fresh (and cabbage, too!
On average, I pay $2.50 for a tub of baby, organic salad greens. By choice, they are organic, hense the higher price than other alternatives and by prefernce again, they are the darker greens. To extend the life of these more delicate greens, I empty the tub, line it with a cotton dish rag before returning the lettuce to the tub.
Cabbage gets wrapped in another cotton dishrag.
This absorbs any moisture, thereby extending their use. We don't really use paper towels here, my current roll was purchased 4 years ago.
