STORAGE HACK FAB OR FAKE?
Occasionally, the Twitter universe throws out a theory so left field that we don’t know whether to slam it as totally ridiculous or suddenly wonder how we lived this long without knowing this titbit of information.
This week, one user made us run to the freezer and stare at it in complete bewilderment.
“How old were you when you found out the lines at the bottom of the freezer were made to stand the meat trays up?” the tweeter named I Love Apple Juice posted.
The mind-blowing question, or statement, depending on which side of the fence you’re on, captions two pictures of trays of meat lined up perfectly along the ridges.
The post has had a huge reaction, being retweeted more than 11,000 times, with many followers agreeing with the theory.
“We’ve been adulting wrong,” one replied.
“Now that makes sense,” another commented.
Some weren’t so quick to get on the meat-tray bandwagon, pointing out that any blood in the packets would pool at the bottom.
Another argued that the theory didn’t account for meat trays in different sizes. Some had answers of their own. “Doubt it – more like air circulation so your stuff doesn’t stick to the bottom,” one read.
Another agreed. “It is. My dad was a white goods mechanic, it’s what he always said. It’s for cold circulation.”
Whoever is right, we think we’ve found a new way to organise the fridge.
