How To Organize Your Fridge Like Martha Stewart On Steroids.

Our health is one of the most important things in life, and undoubtedly, it depends on the food we eat. We often ignore the simple measures that should be taken to stay healthy. The food we eat can either be the safest and the most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison. So, it's important to take simple steps like cleaning our fridge to ensure a healthy level of hygiene. Here are some hacks that are pretty simple yet effective in sanitizing your refrigerator.

Make separate compartments for fruits and vegetables.

If you want these products to stay fresh in your fridge a lot longer, then it's important to store ethylene-sensitive vegetables alone in a high-humidity drawer. On the other hand, ethylene-producing fruits should be stored in a separate drawer with the low-humidity setting on.

Don’t store milk on the side of your fridge door.

As the fridge door opens, the temperature of the products drop and the constant fluctuation results in the milk spoiling faster. Therefore, dairy products should always be kept on a shelf in the main compartment of your fridge.
