There are some foods you should not store in your fridge. Check them out below.

1. Potatoes

Potatoes should not be stored in your fridge in order not to ruin their flavour and make them rot faster. Instead, put them in paper bags and store in a cool, dry pantry.

2. Onions

Leaving onions in the fridge for long periods of time can make them mushy or mouldy. It is best to keep them in dry, well ventilated areas and also keep them away from potatoes, as they can make onions rot faster.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes can be mealy due to the cold temperature in the fridge, which ruins their texture. Keep them in a bowl instead.

4. Honey

You do not need to refrigerate honey because it does not spoil.

5. Garlic

Just like potatoes and onions, garlic can be susceptible to mould growth when stored in the fridge. Use within ten days once you have broken its head.

6. Bread

When you store bread in the fridge, it becomes stale easier and faster. Therefore, keep it in sealed plastic bags instead or store it in your freezer.
