There is no need to keep RI in the fridge just make sure it is well covered with cling film and in an air tight container then cover that with a wet cloth. Stir it every day  RI will keep for a couple of weeks but as time goes on its uses will be less you cannot use RI for run out work after a couple of days because it will not dry or be nice and shinny.
