Friday I bought two pounds of strawberries. One was totally gone and two had soft spots. I took them out and refrigerated the rest. On Saturday I treated them as described here. They stayed out on paper towels overnight. On Sunday they went back into their berry basket (with holes) and the refrigerator.
On Wednesday I examined the remaining berries. Slightly wrinkled, as to be expected, but not a spot on any at all, let alone mold!
