What is this?

I have this white stuff on my fridge door and microwave. It appears to be more numerous, and I don't know what it is... Won't wash off, Clorox, pineal, brillo pad. Any ideas?

Looks to me like overspray from some cleaner. Is it just on the surface or has it pitted the metal.

Yep, something caustic splashed or sprayed on it and removed the paint.

Repaint is the only option.

That's very strange. Did you just buy it? New? Used? Was it like that when you bought it? Have you sprayed anything around the areas? If bought new I'd pay a visit to the dealer.

That appears to be a type of mold/mildew. Try using vinegar; then there is a commercial mold killer = Moldex that works very well.

If it won't come off with Bleach and a Brillo pad I doubt it's mold. Looks like something remove the finish. As stated, repainting may be you only option.

Thanks. What I don't understand is why it is growing. No spray has gone anywhere near the top of the fridge. Will try to repaint.

email a pic to the fridge maker and ask if they have seen it before. Maybe they have and will send you replacement parts. Can't hurt to ask.

Those spots are directional. They were sprayed from somewhere

Did someone use a furniture polish spray on the adjacent cabinetry? If so, those may be oil based and might need something else oil based to dissolve the overspray marks...?

How do you know it's growing? Was there less splatter before?

Try This!

If you find that it is not oil based, try wype-new (not sure of the spelling) sold in most auto parts stores. You could also try linseed oil.
