There’s that e-coli again…

OK, so, it isn’t actually e-coli I’m freaking out about tonight.

It’s salmonella.

Because I took a bunch of fish and chicken out of the freezer and put it into the fridge to defrost. Which it did…

…leaking a large quantity of fish- and chicken-ick all over the inside of my fridge.


See, now, these are the kinds of things that upset me. I don’t mind using the restroom at work, and I’m not the sort who washes her hands and then uses a towel to open the door. I have hand sanitizer at my desk that I pretend I only use for the aloe, so after I’ve washed my hands I cavalierly open the door with my bare mitts and then rush to my desk to, uh, moisturize.

But I digress.

I had a large amount of bacterially-infected dampness in my fridge. And now…I just want to throw out everything that was in there. I don’t care how remote the chances of contamination might be, or how effective Mr. Clean is at the antibacterial thing, or how completely sealed the other food was.

It’s just gross, and I can’t eat it now.

Because-because, that’s why!

Spray everything with white vinegar and you'll be fine. Kills 99% of known bugs (and is edible).
