Propping a Fridge Door Open

I have a lovely fridge in a nice newly remodeled apartment. However, the owners deemed we old folks are too forgetful to close the fridge door so it closes on my head. Literally, if I don't pull my head out fast enough, sometimes hitting it on the freezer handle, it closes on me.

Today was the last day.

I filled a 1 liter bottle with water and tested it to make sure there was enough weight to stop the door. Check.

Then I found it was a bit ugly so I went to cover it, temporarily till I have time to paint it or crochet something to cover it, with a wine gift bag. Then I made sure the pantry door would open without having to move it. Check and check.

Now I have time to get my food out and back in before I am trying to back up in time to clear the door.

Great idea! I too am older & renting & as with you the fridge starts closing before I can get anything in or out. Putting groceries away is a real pain. I'll be using this idea...thanks Sandi!!

You are very welcome. If I can save just one head, it's worth it!!

If you don't have time to decorate the bottle, put it in the freezer if you have room. It will be out of the way until you need to open the door, then there is it.
