Scratches on fridge door handle

LinelleAugust 18, 2013

I have a Kitchenaid stainless side-by-side fridge, about 18 months old. It doesn't pick up fingerprints too bad and generally looks like new. I live alone and am essentially the only one opening/closing its doors.

I noticed an area of small scratches along the left side front of the freezer side handle, about where I grab it to open (and close it, avoiding fingerprints on the face). Perplexing. Then I realized I wear one ring on my left hand (middle finger), an anniversary-style ring. The five diamonds are quite modest. As long as I've worn it, it has a tendency to rotate slowly on my finger so that the diamonds are on the palm side. Lightbulb moment: I'm pretty sure now that often I've grabbed the handle and the diamonds are on the inside and have left a scratch. Such is life, but something to think about.

Fortunately these scratches are in about a 2-inch space and need the light just right to see.

That will do it. There were always scratches on the car windows from my mothers rings and watch.

Linelle me too. My DM comes out of my mouth frequently. Not that I mind because she was the best!
