The whole compartment was soaked, but the coil is behind a vented panel. Last night, after wiping up the excess liquid, I closed the freezer and let it run. Just occurred to me how corrosive bleach can be, so I’ve been cleaning all the surfaces with water and now soap, but I pulled the panel off the coil and noticed it’s got frost all over it.
I assume there’s bleach in the frost (from air circulation), but someone here may know better. I don’t think bleach evaporates, but I read that the particles are tiny and very easily become airborne. If they’re suspended in the frost, maybe they can cause pitting over time, but maybe not?
Should I just leave it be, or disassemble and try to clean the coil with soapy water? I **really** don’t want to have to do that.[PICS HERE](https://imgur.com/a/okD6KEl)
(Everything is wet because I had just sprayed it with clean water.)
