As soon as you open the package of tofu, rinse your leftover tofu and store it in clean water. If you replace this water everyday your tofu will last at least a week! If you don't change the water the tofu might start taking on the smells (and flavors) of your fridge, and I find goes rancid faster.

I have eaten tofu for over 30 years now and have never changed water daily. Every 2-3 days will do. If you forget, and water turns yellowish,
"refresh" it by first rinsing,then adding it to boiling water for 5 minutes.It will then keep for several days or be ready to use. BTW, I find tofu keeps for a couple of weeks. Also, tofu is best if drained of water by placong it on a plate and putting a weight on top for 5 minutes (I use a small,but heavy. mortar and pestle
