Cool storage is not only good for food. We'll tell you which things belong in the refrigerator - and what they do.



Cool storage is not only good for food.

We'll tell you which things belong in the refrigerator - and what they do.

  • Butter, cream, sausage: many

    foods

    belong in the refrigerator.

  • But there is a lot more that is better to keep in the

    refrigerator

    .

  • With these

    ingenious tricks

    , you will rearrange your refrigerator.

Offenbach - There is a

refrigerator

in every household.

It should be clear to everyone that butter, milk and sausage belong in the refrigerator.

Discussions are mostly only about which foods shouldn't be stored in the refrigerator and how to properly load the refrigerator.

But even if many

belong in

it,

food

is not the only thing that is best stored in the refrigerator.

We'll show you what other things you should also keep in the fridge.

These 8 things belong in the refrigerator - except food

Whether

textiles

,

kitchen utensils

or

cosmetics

: There are some things that should be better cooled before use.

Above all, this can improve the durability of many things and make them easier to use.

You can find out from us the

advantages of keeping one or the other rather

crazy object

in the

refrigerator

and which objects these are.

1. Creams - Refreshing care from the refrigerator

The first

thing

that

you

should store in the refrigerator next to food is creams:

skin cream

,

face

cream

,

eye cream

.

The cool storage extends the shelf life of the cosmetic products and

creams from the refrigerator

also have

a refreshing effect.

Especially in the morning, when many are plagued by dark circles and puffiness, an eye cream from the

refrigerator can work

wonders.

All signs of tiredness will then be creamed off your face.

The same applies to face masks, for example, and a cool body cream

can also keep you refreshed longer

after a shower in

summer

, so that you don't immediately have the feeling of sweating terribly again.

2. Eyeliner - Consistency matters

A second tip from the cosmetics department: store your

eyeliner

in the refrigerator.

The product becomes a

little firmer

when it is

stored in the refrigerator,

which makes the

eyeliner

much finer and more precise.

If you prefer to

use

kohl

, the same applies: it is better to store it in the refrigerator too.

The

tips

of Kayal pens often break off when applied.

If you store the pen in a cool place, the product hardens a little so that the tip breaks off less often and you have more of the product.

3. Nail polish stays liquid longer in the refrigerator

One more product and our new

“cosmetics compartment” in the refrigerator is

full for the time being.

Nail polish

.

The problem with the colorful paints: They

often

dry out in

summer

, so that in the end you sometimes have to throw away hardly used products.

The cold in the refrigerator helps prevent

drying out

.

However, you should not

store

nail polish permanently in the

refrigerator

.

The reason for this is that the refrigerator usually only has temperatures of 1 to 6 degrees Celsius and that is not good over a longer period of time: the

paint

becomes thick.

There is also the risk that the nail polish will absorb moisture if the lid is not properly closed.

4. Pillow cases from the fridge ensure a good night's sleep in summer

A real

life hack for hot summer nights

:

Put the pillowcase

in a plastic bag in the

fridge

during the day

.

Take it out in the evening and use it to cover your pillow, it is super refreshing and prevents you from a sleepless night and extreme

sweating

.

Some even put their pajamas in the fridge during the day to

freshen up,

and others

simply

turn a

hot water bottle into

a "

cool bottle

".

My mother's little life hack against the heat:


Fill a hot water bottle with cold water and put it in the fridge.

Before you go to bed, put them under the covers.

Later, when you go to sleep, the sheets are (at least for a short time) nice and cool!

Simply put cold water in a hot water bottle, put it in the

refrigerator

for a while

and then go to

bed

with it.

5. Metal dishes for cooking and baking - a professional tip for the refrigerator

Some

kitchen appliances

are also in

good hands

in the

refrigerator

.

When baking, it can definitely help to cool the necessary utensils such as metal bowls or whisks beforehand.

Because, for example, when

whipping

the

cream

, cool

cookware

pays off

: it becomes significantly creamier.

6. The emergency jar for the refrigerator can save lives

The emergency

box

can be

a real

lifesaver in the refrigerator

: It contains an

information sheet

with personal data such as

religion

and

health insurance number

as well as information about

illnesses

,

family doctor

,

nursing service

or

relatives

.

There are also details of where that

drugs

that

advance directive

may even find a precaution and packed bag for a hospital stay.

The number one target group are, of course, old people who live alone.

But it is certainly a sensible preventive measure for every household.

But why is the emergency

box kept

in the

refrigerator

door?

Quite simply: there is a refrigerator in every apartment.

And how do the ambulance service or the

emergency doctor

know

that such a can is available?

In addition to the information sheet, the box also includes two stickers: one for the

refrigerator

itself, one for the inside of the apartment door.

+

Off to the cold: The emergency jar actually belongs in the refrigerator alongside butter, eggs and mustard.

Because there is one in every apartment.

7. Tights - Tear-proof from the refrigerator

Nylon tights

are a pretty

accessory

.

But unfortunately they are not very resistant and annoying ladder stitches often destroy the outfit.

Here, too, the

refrigerator

can

help

: just put the tights in the refrigerator for a few hours before wearing them.

The result: The fibers contract in the cold and do not tear as easily. 

8. Batteries last longer in the refrigerator

Sounds crazy, but you might have heard of

batteries

claiming to last longer if you keep them in the

fridge

or

freezer

- and it's actually true.

However, you must pay attention to the following: Store the batteries in a closed container so that no

moisture can get

into the batteries.

In addition, storage in the refrigerator makes sense, especially with rechargeable batteries.

Alkaline batteries generally lose very little energy, so the

space in the refrigerator is

certainly better used for a delicious yogurt or your eye cream.
