I made the mistake of putting some extra ortho rose pride (chemical to treat
rose plants) in a dixie cup on top of a backup refigerator/freezer. It ate
through the dixie cup and spilled into the freezer. I tried cleaning it
with acetone and still have the stain from the dixie cup that won't rub out.
I'm leaning towards getting rid of the freezer from what has been done to
it, but I'd like to try cleaning the freezer regardless. Any suggestions
what could possibly clean the freezer?
Plastic lining? Some plastics will stain not matter how well they are
cleaned. It should not cause any problems though as long as you got the
chemical residue out. Acetone may be making the problem worse, depending on
the material. A good scrubbing would do.
Is it smooth metal? Just sand down the top and get some appliance epoxy
in a spray can at your friendly local hardware store. They generally
have white, almond, and black, although I have not seen avocado or
harvest gold :)
replace "fly" with "com" to reply.
I'm thinking people are missing that you spilled the
chemical INTO the freezer, not on it.
You probably could still sand the affected area
and then coat it with epoxy, though, although the
thing is going to be out of service until the
epoxy cures. You'll probably have to
call the manufacturer to find out what kind
of plastic the liner is, though.
