Think Twice Before You Store Leftovers In The Hotel Mini Fridge
The USDA recommends fridge temperatures below 40 degrees F to keep food safe, but many hotel fridges don't meet this requirement, making them unfavorable for storing leftovers in.
Many hotel fridges are drink fridges or beverage coolers, usually between 41 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit, making them better suited for drinks than perishable food.
If your hotel mini fridge has temperature control, set it to at least 40 degrees Fahrenheit. If not, ask the front desk for assistance or request a fridge with proper cooling.
Alternatively, use the hotel's kitchen fridge or the ice bucket with ice for small items. Avoid overpacking and limit fridge openings to maintain cold air.
