We keep perishable items in refrigerator. But most of the times we treat it as a shelf or safe place to store things. There are so many items what we store in refrigerator. We keep many unnecessary items in fridge to protect those from ants and other insects too. We all store honey inside refrigerator to protect it from ants’ attack. Same thing we do for raw bread too. If you buy a fresh bread from shop then it can be kept at normal temperature for two or three days but we want to keep safe bread from ants and other insects that is why we keep it there.
