Hello
We bought a condo with 8 year old GE appliances. The previous owner never removed the "plastic" (?) covering on the handle of the microwave and it is still on there and very wrinkly looking. I want it off! Any tips on how to accomplish this?

Hi my name is***** will be helping you.

Take a hair dryer to remove the plastic. Just do it slowly you don't want to put to much heat to it and start to melt the handle itself.
