DAILY DIRT: Here’s why you should always put toilet paper in your fridge


Daily Dirt for Friday, Aug. 17, 2023

I’m serious. Honest! … Welcome to today’s three thoughts that make up Vol. 700 of The Daily Dirt.

1. Have you ever opened the door to your refrigerator and be greeted with a wave of unpleasantness?

As in unpleasant odor(s)?

Well, there’s a trick to combat that. Place a roll of paper towel inside the fridge to absorb moisture and even most of the lingering odors. (Just make sure not to use a roll that was previously in the bathroom!)

Toilet paper is designed to have high absorbency, so other than liquids, it also absorbs moisture from the surrounding air. That’s what it will do with the odors inside the fridge, along with those pesky particles that cause the unpleasant smell. These particles can result from forgotten and decaying fruits or vegetables, spilled liquids that have gone unnoticed, old meat tucked away in a corner and more.

2. Here are some more of the best names we’ve come across lately through a variety of news and other reports:

Fagley Dork: He’s a businessman in Denver, Colo., and attended Michigan State.

Dr. Asma Butt: He works (or at least did at one time) at the Family Medicine Health Center in Boise, Idaho.

Vanessa Tobaccojuice: She’s a vice president of a non-profit agency in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Dr. Dick Chopp: He’s a renowned vasectomy doctor in Austin, Texas.

3. Fun fact 

MLB fans will appreciate this most. Hall of Fame pitcher, the late Tom Seaver, had a 311-205 record. Of that loss total, 36 defeats came by the scores of 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1. That’s 17.5 percent. Seaver played much of his career for the Mets, who at that time were notorious for their lack of offense. This statistic proves just that.
