Stuff is floating around in the air and falls onto the food. I just habitually put food away in the fridge, especially things like eggs and anything with tomato. At this point in time, I don't even remember why!
What you have to do, obviously, is cover the food. Yes, there are mold spores, bacteria, etc., floating in the air. Of course any uncovered food is going to be less sanitary than if it had a lid or some plastic wrap over it. This goes for inside the refrigerator, too.

I have a waffle recipe that involves mixing up the batter the night before (including milk and butter) and letting it sit out overnight. I do cover it, of course. The batter has yeast in it, and the idea is that the yeast works slowly all night long at room temperature. In the morning, you stir it up, add an egg, and make the waffles. The crazy thing is that apparently many people here wouldn't touch these delicious waffles because the batter sat out all night without being refrigerated.
