These Foods Should Never Be Stored In The Fridge

There’s nothing worse than opening your fridge and finding a messy surprise. But what most people don’t know, is that some foods could be potentially dangerous after being stored in the fridge. Here are all the foods you should never refrigerate under any circumstance.

The fridge has become so central to our lives, that we use magnets to put reminders and schedules on it. This is because at some stage everybody in the family spends some quality time looking in the fridge. Placing reminders there makes lots of sense. Left uncleaned, a fridge can be a breeding ground for germs. The shelves of your fridge need to be cleaned regularly. You also need to rinse out the crisper drawers and wipe the storage areas on the inside of the fridge door. The outside of your fridge needs to be cleaned as well. A place that is often forgotten is the top of the fridge. Be kind to your fridge, and it will be kind to you! A well-looked after fridge will serve you well for many years.


Potatoes do not belong in your fridge. Storage guidelines on potatoes dictate that they need to be stored in a cool, dry, dark place. Your fridge may be dark, but it’s cold, not cool, and moist, not dry. The cold temperature setting on your refrigerator has a negative effect on potatoes. Potatoes are rich in starch. Cold temperatures convert the starch into sugar at a rapid pace. Sugary starches can raise your blood sugar levels which have several health implications.
