    Refrigerator drawer question...

    do you line yours before placing items in them and if you do, what do you use to line them? My mom did matching/coordinating t-towels. Just wondering, as I am about to fill my new refrigerator.

    I don't line my drawers. Didn't know anyone did!! Is that for moisture absorbing purposes? Considering the science experiments I currently am working on in those drawers, I would not want to ravage my t-towels!

    I have used paper towels, tea towels, and that non-stick matting that's aerated -- I find I like paper towels the best, as they're easily removed and replaced (even with the science experiments , and keep the drawers protected, so you don't have to scrub or scrape!

    Wow, I never thought of lining those things. What a revelation (science experiments and all.) Actually I don't find mine too difficult to clean; I just put them in the sink and use hot, soapy water et voilà! Something that would provide a cushion of air might be a good idea, though.
    Chacun à son goût!

    We have something like this that is made to use in refrigerator drawers. It's a rubber-like material that cushions fruit and vegetables.

    That's what I meant by the non-stick aerated lining. If you tend to leave things too long, which I do , I have to replace that lining -- that's why I went to paper towels.

    I've gotten that sort of rubbery mesh shelved in stores with the shelf liners. I actually use it to line the shelves where I store dishes/glasses.

    Yeah, I think it's the same exact stuff. The refrigerator mesh is often green.
