    I don't know if I would use one of the crisper drawers in the fridge, simply because of the lower air circulation. You really don't get much smell from it either. Once the buds get cooler, they don't smell nearly as much until they are warmed up again. As I mentioned, I have grown for a few decades and I ALWAYS got apprehensive during the drying process, since it was easy to be too hot, or too cold, or too humid, or too dry, or a combination of all the above! With this method, I just toss them into the fridge on a sheet of newspaper and kind of cover the buds slightly by fiolding the paper over the top. Thats it! In a week or so, your buds will be perfectly dry, without mold or mildew, and tasty. Just don't try this in an old school fridge, as they don't circulate the air and the humidity is higher.
    Good Luck! Please post your results.

    Sounds great. Does it leave a smell in the fridge? I have a seperate fridge for work stuff that has no food in it. I could use that..but i dont want to stink up the fridge with weed

    Ok so this isn't going to work for me I don't think?

    I placed my temp and humidity meter inside the fridge and it's hitting like 80% humidity in there..so I don't think my fridge is suitable, unfortunately

    (New fridge, like 8-10 months old btw).

    Awesome guys I'm looking forward to comparing the difference I think it will dry too quick out of the fridge in the summer. My whole house is no less than 21_22

    Putting a jar of carbon from an old filter in your fridge might help with this.

    Baking soda is good for removing odours from fridge, spread it out on a tray under the bud

    For some strange reason Sad mine and ANDs are both 70%+ humidity, maybe just depends on the fridge?
