Refrigerators in Your Garage

If you keep a refrigerator in your garage, remember to be careful of potentially hazardous substances you might store. A good rule of thumb is not to store anything in your garage refrigerator that you wouldn’t store in your kitchen refrigerator where anyone can gain access to it. Alcoholic beverages stored in the garage refrigerator may be more easily accessible to children playing in the garage. Don't store dangerous liquids in the refrigerator. They may be mistaken for soft drinks.
