Basic tips on how to organize the fridge
The how to organise your kitchen cupboards went so well I decided to give this post a go too.
So now I have a few tips on organising your fridge.
Yes, the fridge can be quite nice and organised too, OK?! I know, I am OCD! HEHEHE
Yes, I know, sometimes I feel like I'm writing to the wrong people.
But there are people out there that have not thought of certain things, I've seen them, they exist.
When you put food in your fridge, they should be put in there with some sort of cover, maybe inside a container, or wrapped with film or something like that.
Why?! Well, they may leak, even if they seem solid enough, they will let out smells, leak and whatever else that is nasty and will make your fridge disgusting.
Trust me, even if the food is within expiry date, and the temperature of your fridge is correct. Ugly leakage will happen.
There is nothing worst to make your fridge unsanitised and smelly then old food rotting away in there. So throw it out as soon as it is supposed to be thrown out!
Do you know how the fridge works?
Basically there is an air way that releases the cold air into the fridge.
If you block that airway with items, that items will most likely freeze, the rest of the fridge will not cool down to the temperature is supposed to be, which will lead into your food rotting, and you might break your fridge by doing so.
So position your items in such a way that the cooled air can circulate inside the fridge.
Have you ever wondered why there are a certain amount of shelves in the fridge, and why they have different sizes?
Well, because food is meant to be stored in a certain way.
Top shelf: should have the food that are ready for consumption
Middle shelf: should have the foods that are semi ready for consumption
Lower shelf: should have the raw foods
Why is this?
One - because of sanitation, you don't want ready to eat food close to the ground grabbing all that bacteria every time you open the fridge. You won't be cooking away that bacteria, because is a food that you will basically grab from the fridge and eat.
Two - because the cool air way is usually located at the top part of the fridge, And you want your ready to eat food cooled more than the rest so it won't spoil as fast.
This is not such a complicated place. As long as you keep everything wrapped or in a container, and have the types of foods bundled together (so like, frozen meats together, ice creams away from the meats, and so on), you are good to go.
Do you do any of these?
