Furs Like Bananas Do Not Belong in Your Refrigerator

From my childhood my favorite commercial was for Chiquita Bananas. The banana would sing a little song that went…….
” I’m Chiquita banana and I’ve come to say
Bananas have to ripen in a certain way
When they are fleck’d with brown and have a golden hue Bananas taste the best and are best for you
You can put them in a salad
You can put them in a pie-aye
Any way you want to eat them
It’s impossible to beat them
But, bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator
So you should never put bananas in the refrigerator.”

I felt like singing this song today after a customer called to ask why she couldn’t just put her coat in the refrigerator for summer storage.

The storage vaults are kept at about 45 degrees and have very low humidity- refrigerators have much higher humidity.

The coats are hung with air circulating in the storage vault- I don’t know how this could be the case in a refrigerator.

I can give a 100% guarentee that watermelon juice (which actually happened to a customer’s coat when she tried to store it in her refrigerator) will not be spilled on your coat in a proper fur storage vault.

    This anecdote was amusing and a little sad at the same time. If a person goes through the trouble of finding a spectacular fur, why wouldn’t they also take the time to properly care for it? It’s also hard not to wonder what sort of refrigerator people have where they can cram a full sized fur coat?
    Anyway, you are spot-on about the necessity for proper fur storage, particularly in the summer time. We all know what can happen to our hair on those very humid days. Fur isn’t much different! Thanks for setting the record straight.

      Thanks so much for reading the blog- between that customer and things I have found in pockets this season it has been a very interesting storage season!

      Be well and take care
