Okay, i wasn't sure where the heck to place this thread, so if this isn't the right place could one of the higher ups shoot me a p.m. and/or move it? Anyway, I have this HUGE fridge in my basement that would be a real pain to get back out without the use of a sawzall...it killed my dolly when putting it down there in the first place! The other day when i was about to begin dissection, it occured to me that since it was meant to be airtight it would be a great place to store some dry goods and not have to even mess with moving it. After i got it loaded up with stuff (and rearranged to pantry) i was talking with my father and he said it was a really bad idea and that sooner or later everything inside would be covered with a layer of mold/mildew..... Can anyone tell me what causes this in the first place? Is there an effective way to prevent it? ANY bright ideas would be appreciated here.....i'd really hate to have to re-rearrange the pantry again!
