Some people keep food in the fridge without covering it. If you are also making such mistakes, then know its disadvantages as well as the right way to store it.

Do not use plastic containers

Never make the mistake of storing refrigerator food in plastic containers, because use of plastic in any form is not good for our health. In such a situation, pack food in glass or steel containers instead of plastic containers. Keep doing it.

Always cover food

By keeping food in the fridge, we become so completely carefree that now the food can be eaten comfortably two to three times a day, but let us tell you that if you have not kept the food in the right container and also have not covered it, then your food is not safe from anywhere. Open food in the refrigerator can get spoiled due to contact with raw food. Besides, moisture is also lost from the food. Thirdly, the smell of the refrigerator or other food also gets mixed with each other. For this reason, store food in an airtight container. This will keep the food fresh.

Do not store stale food for long

It is okay to eat the food kept in the fridge once, but if you keep it for two to three days, then it has a negative effect on health. Sometimes food kept in the fridge can also grow moldy, so do not ignore it. This food may contain bacteria, which can make you sick.
