Continuing from part 1, here are a few more tips on how to organise your cupboards!
When filling your cupboards, try to organise your food items by category, like all canned products together, all bottles together and so on. This is make searching for items easier, and it will lessen the risk of contamination through odours or microorganisms.
After you open a packaging
This happens to all of us, we buy things that sometimes we don't use it all at once, like a can of tuna, or tomato sauce and etc.
Do you just put the left over back in the cupboard half open like that? Of course not, right?
The best way is to put whatever is left over inside a glass jar with a lid, and depending on the product you should also put it inside your fridge.
If you don't have glass jar, the next best thing is to put them in plastic pots with lids.
Just remember: Plastic is toxic to humans, putting a hot left over in plastic will provoke it to release some plastic toxins into the food. It also happens if you reheat the food inside the plastic tub.
Food cupboards x Tableware cupboards
Should you put tableware and food items in the same cupboards?
No! Tableware should have it's separated cupboard, and food too.
Ideally tableware should be in cupboards that are higher, avoiding this way floor dust going on it.
Humidity in cupboards
Depending on the country you live, and the climate over there, you might deal with really bad humidity which often makes your kitchen cupboards smell funky and you can't prevent a lot molding.
Apart from cleaning more often than a drier country, I have a tip:
On each shelf and/or cupboard, put a little plate there with a piece of charcoal.
Charcoal absorbs humidity and works as a repellent for insects.
Keep in mind you will need to change it every 6 months.
I hope this was helpful to you.
