Here at the station our fridge resembles that of a junior high science class. We have cultures growing in our fridge that are sophisticated enough to have broadcasts of their own. Some days when I call in sick, my boss invites one of the fridge life-forms sit in.

Do I need to say more? Our fridge is gross.

I have prepared a short list of how to maintain a clean and safe fridge:

  1. If food is furry or fuzzy - throw it out
  2. If your food has changed color - throw it out
  3. If your food has a stank to it - throw it out
