I wanted to keep dog urine off of the stainless steel. It wrinkled up and looks awful but it is stuck real tight. How do I get it off?

    Heat it with a hairdryer until warm, grab a corner and slowly peel. Reheat with hairdryer as needed. For the sticky residue left behind, try WD-40 or Goo-be-gone and a soft cloth.

    Peel from the top, going as far down as you can. Then cut that part off, leaving a couple of loose inches to work with below. Use Goo Gone or a similar product and squirt some down behind the sticky film. Use thin motor oil or olive oil if you don’t have a solvent. Let it soak in half an hour, then start pulling off the next few inches, or as far as the film is loose. Use a plastic spatula or plastic knife to dig behind the film to help looses it. When you get to the next stopping point, repeat the steps, and soon you will have all the film off. Use a dry soft cloth to clean any remaining sticky stuff and the solvent or oil off the fridge. Best wishes ☺️

    Those ideas seem really great. However, we need to address that dog! Once you get the film off of the fridge, tape a piece of cloth to the fridge. Spray it with a mixture of 16 ounces of water and a bottle of oil of clove, or clove oil in a spray bottle. Same thing, and it only costs a couple of bucks. Get it at a candy making store or where ever they sell candy making supplies in the grocery store. The bottle is about 2" tall. Then, put a bit of the mixture on your finger when you see the dog by the fridge and put your finger in his mouth. He will be very unhappy! Never use the oil full strength, it's horrible tasting and your dog will drool all over the place. It won't hurt him, this was a tooth ache remedy when I was young. When the dog smells the cloth, he should give the fridge a wide berth. Anywhere you don't want the dog to be, put a piece of the wet cloth, or spray there. If he's chewing stuff, put a drop on that. He'll get the idea:)

    Try using a blow dryer or heat gun on low and take a rubber spatula and work it on the inside to release it.
