How to line a refrigerator
If the refrigerator has imperfections, before applying the film you should sand the surface to make it as homogeneous as possible. If it is only superficial scratches, try to sand gently with fine grit sandpaper while if it is rust problems or real holes, you will need to pass a rust converter and a metal putty to level the hole. Before applying the adhesive paper, the surface of the refrigerator must be perfectly aligned and very clean. Eliminate residues of grease or dirt: clean the parts of the fridge as well as possible where the film will be applied.
Choose good quality stickers (the Decoo-be-Adhesive line available on Amazon is easy to spread) in order toline the refrigeratorwith less difficulty.
To perform goodfridge lining, you have to:
- clean the substrate and obtain a homogeneous surface.
- Take the measurements of the refrigerator to make customizations of the paper (cut it with a very sharp cutter, letting yourself be guided with a very long and rigid ruler, like the lines used in construction). Drill any holes at the height of the handles or plates.
- If you have a steam cleaner, pass hot steam at high pressure over the refrigerator, it will clean and slightly heat the adhesion surface.
- If you use decorative vinyl papers, take the hair dryer at medium temperature and low intensity, space the hairdryer 30 cm away from the adhesive paper and heat it slightly before application.
Begin to spread the paper from the bottom up and take care, with priority, of the smaller spaces (freezer box, drawers, lower or upper relief ...) which are the ones that require more attention.
