Paint the refrigerator with spray paint or canned paint. Spray paint with smooth strokes, painting past the refrigerator slightly to get an even application each time you start a new stroke.

Can I paint my fridge handles?
Refrigerator handles are one of the most difficult things in your kitchen to keep clean, as they are constantly being touched.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Yellow Plastic If the inside of the fridge has turned yellow, then a wash of hydrogen peroxide can brighten up the discolored plastic.

How do you clean a yellowed fridge?
A simple way to clean the yellowed surface is with an all-purpose cleaner that contains bleach.

When using bleach, make sure to wear gloves.
