Nowadays, absolutely every kitchen has a refrigerator, sometimes even more than one. Without it, food will simply spoil, especially in the hot season. But even with this technique, food often loses its attractive appearance and changes its taste for the worse.

Store all foods in the refrigerator

It is worth remembering that some foods are simply not suitable for storage in the refrigerator. We are talking about:

  • potatoes
  • garlic
  • onions
  • citrus fruits
  • melons
  • tomatoes

After storage in the refrigerator, the taste and appearance of these products change for the worse.

As for avocados, nectarines, pears, and peaches, they should only be refrigerated if you can see that the fruit is beginning to overripe.

For example, bread has no place in the refrigerator at all, because it will become very tasteless. But you can freeze such a product.

Store food on the wrong shelves

The right neighborhood is the key to freshness and good taste of food. For example, minced meat should not be stored next to fresh lettuce – the greens will have a bad odor and will quickly wilt. In addition, food that is already starting to deteriorate can infect fresh food.

Storage of washed products

Don't wash vegetables, fruits, herbs, and other foods that need it right away. Do it only before eating. Washed foods will spoil very quickly in the refrigerator, and moisture promotes the spread of bacteria.

Food is not properly packaged

If the sausage is just lying on the shelf without packaging, it will quickly become airborne and spoil. And this is the case with many products. Therefore, it is very important to choose the right packaging that will protect the food and keep out air and odors.

Store perishable foods on the refrigerator door
