Important Dos And Don’t  About Refrogerators

The kitchen’s true workhorse, the frigerateurs {refrigerateurs}, is frequently overlooked. Messes, energy waste, and even foodborne illnesses can result from improper use and carelessness. Here are some general dos and don’ts to maintain your fridge (and the food inside it!) in great condition, even if every fridge is a little bit different.

Do Maintain your fridge temperature

To prevent dangerous bacteria from growing and make your supper leftovers safe to eat, keep the fridge set at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. Set the freezer to a constant 0 degrees F; this temperature will keep your ice cream frozen without using excessive electricity.

Do clean and inspect fridge door seals every month

It is more difficult for your refrigerator to maintain its chilly temperature if its doors don’t seal properly. Think of freezer burn on your ice cream and frozen burritos when considering how a poor freezer seal might cause unwelcome frosty buildup. To prevent debris or food spills from obstructing the seal, clean the seals with warm, soapy water. It’s time to purchase a new seal if the existing seal is cracked or broken.

Do Put Some  Produce in Different Bins to Separate It

The entire batch of fruits and vegetable can be ruined by one rotten fruit. Some fruits, such as apples, bananas, avocados, and melons, release ethylene, a ripening gas, which accelerates the deterioration of nearby food. Keep these fruit in a separate bin that is maintained at low humidity, away from delicate greens that would wilt if exposed. The open vent will allow some gas to escape and prolong the life of the food.

Don’t Keep perishable items out of the door.

Your fridge door is opened and closed frequently and is the warmest spot inside the fridge. You shouldn’t store products like milk and eggs in the fridge door, keep them on a shelf instead.

Don’t Use abrasive chemical cleaners

Keep in mind that this is where you store your food! Pick non-toxic green cleaners or scrape away while combining a little water with baking soda or white vinegar. Take off all the food from your refrigerator once a season, get dirty, and undertake a thorough cleaning. Remember to clean your gasket as well.

Don’t Waste Space By Storing Incorrect Food

Items that are frequently stored in the refrigerator, such as hot sauce, nut butter, coffee beans, and other foods, don’t need to be refrigerated and work just as well—if not better—in the pantry.

Don’t open the door frequently

 Before you open the fridge door, make a plan. Every time you open it, chilly air escapes, so to conserve money and energy, try collecting a few items while each is open.


There you have it, our top dos and don’t to keep your fridge running efficiently for many years to come. We hope you found these tips useful.
