As the director of a company that sells brand new kitchens and kitchen appliances, this post may seem a little strange. However, I don’t want to sell an appliance to someone who doesn’t need one. Especially when the appliance in question is a fridge freezer. Disposing of fridges and freezers is dirty work. So if we can make our current appliances work efficiently for longer, then I’m all for it. Therefore, here is a tip on how to fix the plastic lining of your fridge.
Recently my fridge freezer suffered what I assumed was a terminal breakage. The white plastic door liner had cracked and the crack was such that the bottle tray was rendered useless. Due to the way the fridge is constructed, I would need a new door to resolve this problem. The cost of replacing the door would have been almost as much as a new appliance.
I decided to see if it was possible to fix the door and I found a brilliant solution. I was so impressed, I decided to write a post about it. I need to make it clear that I have not been asked to write this post by any company or individual. I am simply writing this post as a satisfied customer sharing a great find.
The solution I found was Sugru, which is a silicone putty that bonds to all kinds of surfaces, making it ideal for fixing the interior liner of my fridge door. As with all of my online shopping decisions, my first stop was Amazon. However, I decided to have a look at the Sugru website and see if they were offering any deals. Actually there were no offers. In fact they were slightly more expensive than Amazon. But I felt compelled to try their sales service and I’m very glad that I did. The online shopping experience was a real pleasure, with personalised on screen comments being displayed along the way. I genuinely felt engaged as I made the purchase.
The Sugru arrived in the post a couple of days later, it was packaged beautifully and worked perfectly as described.So, if you have a breakage in the house and aren’t sure how to fix it, I recommend you take a look at Sugru.
Here’s a brief description of my Sugru fridge repair

With the break filled with Sugru all that’s needed is a bit of smoothing
