So I’m filling my mug with water from the fridge, and for the gazillionth time I think it sure would be great if the dispenser area had a slide-out shelf so I could walk away while my mug/pitcher/pot fills with water.
Then I realize I’ve never actually tried to pull out the bottom plate. Who knows? Maybe I already have one of those fancy fridges and didn’t even know it!
Alas, I was wrong and I found something truly disturbing in the process. So naturally I took a picture of it.
GROSS! I didn’t even know that plate came off. (Apparently neither does my house cleaner.)
The brown stains on the dispenser toggles are likely iced tea splashes from when the ice melts before the tea is gone and I stick the glass of liquid under the dispenser so fresh ice can plummet down the chute screaming, “CANNONBALL!”
I am happy to report it cleaned up pretty easily.
Except for some hard water areas on the plate that had more stamina than I did elbow grease. Perhaps I’ll try Lime-Away next.
Now, if I could only figure out how to rig up an extendable shelf so I can do some hands-free filling.
