NOTE: Unleaded 88 is EPA approved and should only be used in vehicles 2001 or newer as well as light-duty trucks, SUVs, and Flex Fuel Vehicles.

How well do you know your Refrigerator?

The refrigerator is the most popular kitchen appliance in America

In fact, almost 100% of homes have a refrigerator and a quarter of American households have two! More than 8 million refrigerators are sold each year in the US.

FYI: A refrigerator spends about 10% of the total electricity used in a common household. A refrigerator is more efficient if it has more items in it.

Refrigerator maintenance

Your fridge’s temp should remain at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below in order to prevent foodborne illness (FDA).

Most makers recommend changing the air filter about every six months. Same goes for the water filter.

When is the last time you cleaned UNDER your refrigerator?

You know those thick dust bunnies hiding under the floor of your fridge? They may be doing your appliance a disservice. Making sure you remove the grill and clean underneath regularly can help your fridge maintain cool temperatures without using too much electricity.  Interesting tips: https://www.eatthis.com/refrigerator-facts/

Don’t keep these items in the fridge?

Potatoes, tomatoes, bananas, garlic and onions are among the ingredients best kept in a cool, dark place, but not the fridge.

Food 101: Waste not, want not? *40% of all U.S. food ends up in the trash, according to the environmental advocacy group National Resources Defense Council.
