Seven things you should NEVER put in the fridge

Running out of room in your fridge? Taking out the things that don't belong in there in the first place could help!

ONE. BREAD

1. BREAD

Not only does it take up a lot of space, but it also dries out. (But if you are going to toast bread anyway, it will save it going mouldy...)

TWO. BANANAS

2. BANANAS

They will be okay to eat, but the skin will go black more quickly.

THREE. CAKES AND MERINGUES

3. CAKES AND MERINGUES

Cakes will go hard, and meringues will go soft.

FOUR. CHOCOLATE

4. CHOCOLATE

The chocolate starts to go white (fat rises to the surface) and the taste changes.

FIVE. HOT FOOD

5. HOT FOOD

Wait for it to cool completely, to avoid contamination and messing up your fridge temperature.

SIX. OPENED TIN CANS

6. OPENED TIN CANS

The food will dry out. Decant the leftovers.

SEVEN. PRODUCTS PAST THEIR USE-BY DATE

7. PRODUCTS PAST THEIR USE-BY DATE

Products past their ‘use-by’ date or any unfinished food, for obvious reasons - but they'll also start to stink out the fridge!
