Need Help With Paint for Refrigerator Door Handle

October 21, 2008

Hi, I have a GE side-by-side white textured refrigerator. Both door handles have turned a yellowish and splotchy color and looks very ugly against the white refrigerator exterior. Is there a special refrigerator paint that I should/can use for the handles (I think it is vinyl or leather handles?-not sure.) Please help!

It's hard to say which paint would work for you if you are unsure of the handle material. If you determine it is vinyl, a water base acrylic will work just fine. Wash well with soap and water, dry, apply paint with a very soft paint brush (artist brush). If it's leather, a white leather dye would probably work fine for you.
