5 Tips About the Humidity Drawers in Your Fridge

The humidity drawers in your fridge are some of the best places to keep your fresh produce to make sure that it stays as delicious and edible as possible, but only if you use them right.

  1. How to control the humidity in the drawers: There are small sliders in the front of your fridge’s drawers – keep them open to allow air to flow in, close them up to keep it out.
  2. There’s a reason the drawers are at the bottom of the fridge: Hot air rises to the top, and cold air sinks to the bottom. This is basic science, and is the reason the humidity drawers are at the bottom of the fridge.
  3. Keep the sliders closed to make sure the drawers are as humid as possible: Leafy plants live humid environments, so you want to keep those sliders closed to make sure they’re as happy as possible.
  4. Keep the sliders open if you want to prevent rot: While leafy herbs and veggies love a humid environment, other plants absolutely hate it and will start to rot if they’re kept in a damp drawer. When you’re taking care of non-leafy plants, keep the sliders open to make sure they’re healthy and fresh.
  5. Not every piece of produce should go in the fridge: Some fruits and vegetables like mangos, citrus, avocados, bananas, potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, eggplants, and cucumbers should be kept out of the fridge and on your counter.
