    Have you tried a paste of baking soda, water and a drop of dish detergent?

    Plastic often yellows as it ages. I suggest a chourough cleaning, using toothpicks to get into tiny spaces, and rinsing and drying well. Then tape off the fridge door with newspaper and tape. Spray or brush on white latex paint so that the handle looks new. Add a sealer. Enjoy the new look! 🤶🏻

    Hi Sherry. I'm Cindy. Submerge a cleaning pad in white vinegar. Wring it out and then sprinkle baking soda on it. Put the mixture on the handles and rub in a circular motion. If the handles are still yellow, scrub them with an old toothbrush. Then wipe clean. Repeat if necessary. Good luck Sherry and Happy Holidays.

    Maybe try a magic eraser? Not sure if that will work but they are inexpensive and I always give them a shot with stubborn stains

    Me clean magic eraser. White vinegar with hydrogen peroxide scrub.

    Warning: bleach can cause yellowing.
