In general, greens should be stored in an airtight plastic bag or container. They “go bad” when they dehydrate, so never put them straight in your fridge. If you find that they have gone “limp”, a tell-tale sigh of dehydration, you can try soaking them in a bowl of cold water for a period of time. Often they will perk right back up again!
