It is a pity to throw away those leftovers, however, it is not safe to eat the food that comes into contact with the bacteria in the refrigerator as the bacteria will multiply and the food will go bad. At this time, everyone's first thought was to wrap the food with plastic wrap before putting it in the refrigerator. Nevertheless, disposable plastic wrap contains some harmful substances itself. You may wonder if there is anything else that is both healthy and environmentally friendly and can keep food fresh? Well, there is. This article will give you a detailed introduction to a replacement of disposable plastic wrap---silicone lid.

 

At present, most of the plastic wraps on the market have the same production principles as plastics, and they are all made of ethylene. Disposable plastic wrap is not good for storing fresh food, and long-term use may cause cancer. However, silicone lid is made of food-grade silicone, which is non-toxic, harmless, clean, healthy and safe. It has strong sealing, is not easy to fall off, drip-proof. You can put it directly in the refrigerator and it can prevent bacteria from going into the food.
