Do not wash the strawberries.
Strawberries are like sponges and will soak up all the water causing them to spoil.
You can clean the strawberries with a slightly dampened paper towel to remove any dirt.
Check to see if any of the strawberries are moldy.
If there are any, remove them immediately and discard them.
Remove the strawberries from their original package.
Line a plastic container with a piece of paper towel or napkin and place the strawberries inside the container, only do not crowd the container. The paper towel will collect any extra moisture that the strawberries have.
