I guess I'm definitely with the majority here. I find that if I wash veggies before storing they don't last as long. Even if they're damp (a lot of grocery stores have sprinkler systems on the produce aisles to make them look prettier) I try to dry them because the wet in the vegetable crisper drawer makes the veggies spoil faster. This might not be much of an issue if you have a large family and go through them very quickly. But even though my husband and I eat a lot of fresh produce, storing them too damp means I have to throw out food, which I hate to do, especially things I have to by in set amounts (i.e., carrots, celery, sometimes lettuce).
