Leafy greens and delicate vegetables wilt because of a loss of moisture. The air in your refrigerator tends to be very dry, therefore delicate ingredients that require more moisture like Kale, Spinach, or Lettuce are best stored in a crisper drawer because it offers a contained space with more humidity. As you’ve probably noticed, most grocery stores have misters that “rain” on the high moisture vegetables periodically to keep them watered. If your refrigerator is not equipped with a crisper/vegetable bin, or if you prefer to store your fresh ingredients on the shelves for easy access, you can either place a wet paper towel over the leafy greens to add some extra moisture, or you can keep a basic spray bottle filled with water in or near your fridge and use it once a day to mist inside of your refrigerator. The best way to store fresh produce is just how you would find it at the farmer’s market or the grocery store, outside of plastic bags. If you use storage containers to organize your fridge, we recommend keeping the lids off to allow the activated oxygen to easily reach the surfaces of your fruits and vegetables.
With Fridge Fresh there is no need to fuss with plastic bags, plastic bags or food storage containers to keep your food preserved. Because the Fridge Fresh device transforms the inside of your refrigerator into an oxygen-rich environment, it offers a much more effective and convenient solution to keep fruits and vegetables fresh in their natural state. Simply place your Fridge Fresh device on the top shelf of your refrigerator, and store your fruits and vegetables just as you find them at a produce stand or at the grocery store.
*However, leafy vegetables such as Kale, Spinach, and Lettuce are high moisture vegetables and therefore benefit more from humid environments such as your vegetable bin/crisper. If your refrigerator is not equipped with a vegetable bin/crisper, we suggest you place your leafy vegetables on a plate covered with a moist paper towel. You may also mist as needed.
YES, the crisper bins and drawers in your refrigerator are not air tight or sealed, therefore the molecules of activated oxygen easily penetrate these spaces. The contents inside your crisper bins will benefit from the powerful effects of activated oxygen, as long as they are not kept in plastic bags or containers that would inhibit the flow of air. For this reason, it’s best to store your produce in your refrigerator the same way you would find them at the grocery store or at your local produce stand.
Several factors determine how much longer your food will remain fresh, including the type of fruit or vegetable, and the condition the produce was in when you purchased it. You can expect some foods to stay fresh for several days longer with Fridge Fresh, while others like berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries) may stay fresh up to two weeks. Avocados can last several weeks in a refrigerator with Fridge Fresh. Although the peel of a banana will darken, the banana inside will remain fresh much longer inside the refrigerator. Of course, these aren’t the only benefits you’ll enjoy. Fridge Fresh also neutralizes unpleasant fridge odors while fighting refrigerator mold and bacteria. Those are results you can see – and smell – every day of the week.
YES, we offer a 30 day money back guarantee, as well as a full one-year manufacturers warranty. We are confident with the quality of our product and we don’t expect you to have any problems. However if for any reason you experience difficulty with your unit, simply contact us and we’ll be happy to help. We’ll even replace your unit free of charge if that is necessary. We’ve only ever seen one unit break at headquarters – and that was because it was run over by a delivery truck!
We have taken great efforts in our development to ensure Fridge Fresh is compact enough to go unnoticed in the back of the refrigerator. Our clever design is small enough that it won’t take up too much precious refrigerator space, yet powerful enough to be extremely effective in removing the harmful elements that trigger foods to spoil and cause unpleasant fridge odors. Since there is no longer a need for bulky food storage containers or specialty bags to keep food fresh, our customers tell us that using Fridge Fresh actually creates more space in their refrigerator. The exact dimensions measure 5w x 2.5d x 5.2h inches and weighs less than 1 pound.
YES, Fridge Fresh is perfectly safe for household use. In June of 2001, the FDA approved O3 for use as an antimicrobial agent for direct contact with foods, food storage and processing. O3 is used to treat air and water in many important applications to help purify our environment and promote better health. As Fridge Fresh releases the O3 and the oxidation process occurs, the O3 instantly converts back to pure oxygen, O2. Since the O3 does not accumulate inside your refrigerator, Fridge Fresh is not able to produce unhealthy or toxic levels of O3 that would be harmful.
Fridge Fresh is the only product on the market to use a superior patented technology that produces activated oxygen, also known as O3. Unlike other products, the technology behind Fridge Fresh has been thoroughly researched and tested, and that makes it a proven way to keep food fresh, safe and delicious for much longer than you can with refrigeration alone. Fridge Fresh uses the good stuff from nature as a simple and NON-TOXIC alternative to products that use chemicals to rid your fridge of harmful pollutants and unwanted odors. Fridge Fresh requires no disposable filters or absorption packs to replace, which makes it convenient and easy to use. Just insert the 4 “D” size batteries, place the device on the top shelf of your refrigerator, and let the refrigerator magic begin.
If our present experience is any indication, forever. Okay, we’re exaggerating of course, but we do have units at headquarters that are still going strong after five years of use, and they don’t show signs of tapping out any time soon. When you create a product that’s built around the laws of nature, it’s a product that’s built to last.

Fridge Fresh is the only product on the market to use a superior patented technology that produces activated oxygen, also known as O3. Unlike other products, the technology behind Fridge Fresh® has been thoroughly researched and tested, and that makes it a proven way to keep food fresh, safe and delicious for much longer than you can with refrigeration alone. Fridge Fresh uses Mother Nature’s most powerful purifier as a simple, NON-TOXIC, and natural alternative to products that use chemicals to rid your fridge of harmful pollutants and unwanted odors. Fridge Fresh® requires no disposable filters or absorption packs to replace. Just insert the 4 “D” size batteries, place the device on the top shelf of your refrigerator, and let the refrigerator magic begin.
The science is complex, but the concept is simple. The Fridge Fresh refrigerator appliance sanitizes the air in your refrigerator through the use of activated oxygen, a powerful natural oxidizing agent that reacts with surface molecules on bacteria and mold. It also neutralizes ethylene, a gas which speeds up the ripening and rotting of foods. The result is a clean environment that preserves the nutritional value of your fruits, vegetables and other foods while postponing spoilage and decay. Fridge Fresh helps you to limit and reduce your household food waste and plastic waste too. When you prevent food waste, you’ll send far less garbage to the landfill over the course of a year.
You won’t have to worry about outlets and extension cords when you use the Fridge Fresh® refrigerator appliance . All the unit requires is a fresh set of batteries, and since the power drain is so low, those batteries will last on average 3-6 months before they need to be replaced. We are supporters of environmental stewardship, after all, and being energy efficient is a big part of that. There are also no filters or absorption packs to clean or replace, so you don’t have to worry about maintaining your Fridge Fresh. It does all the work for you.
You’ll even save fuel, because you’ll make fewer trips back and forth to the grocery store, and you’ll indirectly help stores do the same. After all, when people waste less food, stores don’t need to restock quite so often.
YES! We believe strongly in the powers of our Fridge Fresh® device, but our business doesn’t stand on belief alone. Research shows proof and performance for our Fridge Fresh® device. In fact, an independent study conducted by R&D Enterprises proved that our product is “very effective” at eliminating strong food odors and that it successfully keeps food fresh longer, thereby preventing spoilage and reducing food waste.

The first time you pop the batteries into the chamber and activate your Fridge Fresh unit, the green light will come on and glow continuously for the first 60 minutes. After this first cycle, the unit will kick into standby mode and you will see the green light blinking periodically. Standby mode saves your battery life while ensuring the optimum levels of ozone in your fridge. If at any time you have your refrigerator door open for an extended period of time (more than a couple minutes) its a good idea to re-set the automated timing sequence by taking the batteries out for just a minute and immediately putting them back in your unit. This will allow the 60-minute cycle to repeat and refresh the inside of your fridge.
On average batteries will last 3-4 months, depending on the quality of batteries you purchase. The indicator light will glow red to alert you when the batteries are running low and it’s time to replace your batteries.
We recommend you place your Fridge Fresh on the top shelf. Anywhere on the top shelf will do, even if it’s buried way in the back. Most refrigerators have a fan near the top of the refrigerator, so this placement ensures the activated oxygen will circulate most efficiently.
