Sometimes, we would like to eat raw salads or other vegetables. We have to wash the vegetables first, then try to get rid of water on the vegetables before we eat them.
To get rid of water on the vegetables, we often put the vegetables in a basket with holes, then we move the basket with full of vegetables up and down quickly. Because of the gravity and the momentum, the vegetables will stay in the basket and won't fall out. But sometimes, the vegetables may fall out if it is not done carefully or the whole basket drops down (see the picture below).
How to express "move the basket with full of vegetables up and down quickly"?
For example, "I shook water off the vegetables but the basket slipped out my hand".
