Can I paint a discolored refrigerator handle?

    I have a GE refrigerator that has a bright white plastic handle. The
    handle has a slightly roughened surface that contains small little
    bumps. I have cleaned it with a bleach mixture, and it looks OK, but
    there are a couple of small yellowish spots that remain that don't
    appear to be cleanable. That being the case, I wonder whether I can
    paint the handles with a white spray paint. The spots just bug me, and
    I have corrected minor blemishes on the refrigerator by using white
    enamel paint. Thanks,

    JD

    It's vinyl coated...correct? If so you may be a ble to try one of the
    new krylon paints for plastics, like for use on platic deck chairs
    etc.

    I bet 1/3 the cost of the frig. Like a damn plastic tailight lens.
