Both ThreeBees and The Super Apollo [large upright freezer and large fridge/freezer respectively] have an air-cooled system so never need defrosting, however Pereg's freezer is just a regular one that needs defrosting. Because it is only opened once a day, to get Tikva's breakfast out and to get whatever meat needing to be defrosted for her evening meal, and/or when I put freshly frozen stuff in, it only needs defrosting once a year. But I forgot to do it until the top drawer stuck when trying to get something out of it although I did manage to get it [and the other drawers] out, so unplugged it and shoved towels in the bottom so it did not flood the floor. Luckily I had a linen basket full of towels ready to be washed which ended up soaking wet, one after the other. They are now in the washing m/c but I will not do them until tomorrow as it is mid-afternoon and by the time the cycle is done there will not be enough time for them to dry - and no way will I leave the dryer switched on overnight. Pereg's freezer is now nice, frost-free and dry, so the drawers and what is in them are now safely tucked up in it. And that is that until the next time!
