The Guessing Game is Dangerous

A general rule of thumb is that leftovers should be tossed after three days, and you shouldn’t reheat them more than once. You may think that you’ll remember exactly when you cooked the spaghetti, but you’ve got more important things on your mind. Food that’s no longer safe to eat will usually have a strange texture or odor, but dangerous food can sometimes slip through to your family. Protect them by cleaning the refrigerator regularly and tossing any foods that are questionable.

Cross Contamination is Real

What happens if your child leaves an opened package of lunch meat on the shelf behind the milk? If you’re cleaning the fridge regularly, the answer is probably nothing. However, this isn’t the case if you let this chore go for several days or even weeks. When that ham starts to go bad, the juice can dribble onto the shelf. It drifts under the milk, and it transfers to your hand the next time you pour a glass. From your hand, it’s very easily transferred to your body if you touch your mouth, nose or eyes without washing your hands first. However, you can avoid this problem by checking the fridge regularly and keeping it clean.

When Was the Last Time You Cleaned Out Your Freezer?

Ideally, a freezer should be thoroughly cleaned twice a year but it’s easy to overlook the freezer when doing household chores. By the time you wonder when the last time you cleaned your freezer was, you may think you are in for an all-day chore. However, there are ways to clean your freezer that will not eat up an entire day, and cleaning the freezer is beneficial to the food you freeze. A clean freezer smells better and does not transfer odors into items that absorb such smells easily, like ice creams and ice cubes. Additionally, if you have an older freezer model in which ice can actually build up in the freezer compartment, a clean freezer runs better and more efficiently, costing you less each month on the electricity to run it.
