Q's Daily DIY Green Tips: Cooling with Cold

How do you defrost your frozen food?  On the counter?  In the microwave?  In hot water?  Under running water in the sink?  Unfortunately these are not the best ways to defrost food for energy, resource conservation and health reasons.  Why not defrost your frozen food in the refrigerator?  This is a simple way to use less energy, and one of the best ways to defrost food as per the USDA.  Defrosting food in your refrigerator will help your refrigerator stay cool, and cause your refrigerator condenser to work less.  A condenser that works less uses less energy.
