There are certain foods that shouldn’t be kept in the freezer as this can lead to the growth of bacteria or even health risks. Potatoes Potatoes have a high water content, so after being stored in the freezer, you could be left with a mushy, soft potato. Potatoes are best kept in a cool, dry place. If you really want to freeze them, you should try cooking them first. Fried foods Foods that were fried will lose their crunchy taste if you put the leftovers in the freezer. The best advice is to eat all of your fried food in one go or fry the ones you can eat. Eggs in their shell You should never keep eggs that are still in their eggs in the freezer. The water content inside the egg expands when frozen, which can cause the outer shell to crack and be vulnerable to bacteria. If you want to freeze your eggs, always take them out of the shell, mix until well blended and put in the freezer. Cooked rice and pasta Freezing cooked rice and pasta is never a good idea.

5 Vehicle Parts That Easily Get Damaged By Potholes And Ways You Can Protect Them

Potholes are road imperfections that occur when soil compacted beneath pavement becomes weakened.  Here are parts of your vehicle that easily get damaged by potholes: 1) Tires
Tires are meant to be the only part of your car that touches the road, so it isn’t a surprise that they’re prone to pothole damage like sidewall bulges, tread separation or flats.
