    If the color has yellowed it might be.. because the handle has a plastic coating or is made from plastic..... find out before you paint... then use a paint made especially for plastic.

    YYou can try softscrub with bleach. I have also used a magic eraser to get it white again.

    Jan, have you looked at replacing it? Sometimes these parts aren't as expensive as you might think. Plastic paint would probably work, but if the part is less than $20 you will probably come out ahead by buying it new. There are online appliance parts and brick&mortar appliance parts stores around.

    Take the handle off and take it to the paint department at your home improvement store. They can tell you what to do and what products to buy,

    Sorry Nothing is working for you. Get paint especially for plastic. Bad thing is being on the handle I can see the paint getting scratched off.
