Dishwasher Detergent Has Bleach In It

I learned it the hard way.

A couple weeks ago, I popped the cap off the dishwasher detergent and some splattered on me. I didn’t think much of it, but a couple hours later I noticed one of my favorite t-shirts had pink spots on it.

Satellite Dishes are Gray Because…

They are primed for painting. That’s right, it’s not just any gray: it’s primer gray. That means your dish can blend in or compliment your house if you paint it.

As for the type of paint, many people report good results with rust-oleum and Krylon Fusion (or similar).

If your dish is not gray then you may want to prime it first.

Tips:

  • do not paint over the LNB (plastic cap at the focal point of the dish – see picture)
  • only use satin/flat paint (not glossy or metallic)
  • do not move the dish while painting it (unless you plan to re-aim it)
  • do not hurt yourself
