Expert explains why you should never store your milk in the fridge door
| Last updated
Turns out we’ve all been storing milk the wrong way.
According to the folk behind the social media page, storing your milk on the shelves attached to your fridge door actually costs you more money.
Check out the video below:
"Don't put your milk on the fridge door like this,” said Cost of Living Crisis Tips while showing a milk cartoon tucked up against a fridge door.
They added: “When you open the fridge door, it pulls away from the cool air - affecting the freshness," before advising people to ‘put milk at the back of the fridge to make it last longer’ and adding that the move will ‘save you money’.
The advice didn’t have everyone convinced though, with one person writing beneath the video: “But the door is open for like 2 seconds, maybe 10 depending on what you go in for but usually it’s shut straight away.”
Cost of Living Crisis Tips replied: “Yes and how many times do you open it a day? It adds up.”
Other comments included: “Lol all my life I've been placing it inside the door, NEVER had a problem,” “It does actually work. I put ours behind the sprouts and the kids can't find it so it lasts a lot longer” and “Correct. Always done it this way.”
As the cost of living crisis rages on, it was announced last month that millions of Brits will receive a cost of living payment of up to £300 in addition to the £650 package for low income households.
Pensioner households who already qualify for the Winter Fuel Payment, which is between £100 and £300, will get an additional £150 to £300, with the payments set to start rolling out this month.
The extra financial assistance was announced by the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer.
The government said in a statement: "If you’re entitled to a Winter Fuel Payment for winter 2022 to 2023, you will get an extra £300 for your household paid with your normal payment from November 2022.
"This is in addition to any Cost of Living Payment you get with your benefit or tax credits.
"The full amount of Winter Fuel Payment you will get for winter 2022 to 2023 depends on your circumstances."
