Smell that makes your insides flip? Green and white fuzzy spots? Expiration date? Well, these are some pretty obvious signs you’d be crazy not to notice.

1. Bad Mushrooms Are Dark and Slimy

Some mushrooms even start smelling bad and some don’t but get all slimy but shriveled instead. One thing is for sure, if they start spreading strange odors and get so dark you have to look at them twice to be completely sure they are indeed mushrooms, you definitely can’t use them! Fresh mushrooms are not icky to touch, they have that soft, earthy smell you can’t pick up unless you really stick your nose in them and, depending on the kind, their color can go anywhere from totally white to gray.
