Refrigeration is a common practice in many homes. Most people assume that storing food items in the fridge is enough to keep them from going bad. However, the way you organize and store your food in the fridge determines a lot for how long the food is going to last. Some few practices like; knowing what should or should not go to the fridge, what should be kept where in the fridge, at what temperature each item should be kept at, etc., helps a lot. The following tips on where to keep what in the fridge are very useful, take note.
Firstly, buy only the things you really need. This is important because it reduces congestion and overstocking of the fridge so that items have access to fresh air and also, it reduces temperatures inside the fridge.
Another way of keeping food fresh for longer is by doing your shopping in the right manner. Don’t rush to buy the kitchen fruits and vegetable items first. This reduces the time you spend carrying them around.
Separate the items, keep them where they need to be kept. Vegetables may spoil when kept together with fruits because the fruits especially the bananas will emit ethylene gas which is dangerous to the veggies. Or else, you can buy an ethylene gas absorber to reduce the effects of ethylene gas on other items.
Another important practice is that you should not keep everything in the fridge; some items just need cool temperatures to stay fresh. Keep tomatoes at room temperatures.
Vegetables need to be stored on the bottom shelves of the fridge where the temperature is very cold. This way, they won’t go bad. Green leafy vegetables should be washed, dried and loosely wrapped in plastic bags to give them access to fresh air.
In order to allow the fruit and vegetables to breath and again last longer, you can use Xiaomi Filter Core which can offer cleaner airflow and protect your fruit and vegetables from nasty bacteria which accelerate spoilage. It is an herbaceous deodorant and sterilizing filter core product made specifically for keeping food fresh, prolonging the life of refrigerated items, reducing or terminating flavor and reducing the spoilage.
Finally, you should avoid keeping food leftovers in the fridge because in most cases it is usually forgotten there up to when it has already gone bad. Spoilt food has a bad odor, and you don’t want a smelly fridge, I’m certain.
