Full Answer

Fresh whole mushrooms usually last around seven to 10 days. Sliced fresh mushrooms will last around five to seven days. When mushrooms are cooked, they can last anywhere from seven to 10 days. The best way to store mushrooms to extend their shelf life is to leave them whole in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator. If mushrooms are beginning to turn bad, they can be browned in oil with garlic and then be placed in a sealed container in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

    A:

    In 2012, a team of astronomers from the University of Pittsburgh announced that the Milky Way galaxy is aptly named thanks to its pure, milky white color, which the scientists described as resembling a fresh snowfall. The fact that Earth is located within the Milky Way galaxy has made the process of measuring the galaxy's color difficult; obstructions from things like dust and gas within the galaxy had previously made it hard for scientists to get a broad enough view of the Milky Way in order to determine its color.

    Is there a natural way to strip hair color?

    A:

    The most natural way to strip hair color is to mix vitamin C into shampoo, and use it to wash your hair. Both powder and tablet vitamin C work well for this, but tablets seem to work somewhat better. To use this method, mix one or two 1,000 milligram tablets into any ordinary shampoo. Vitamin C does not strip natural hair color like bleach does.
