Is rain ruining the appliances I'm supposed to Freecycle?
posted by Sweetie Darling to home & garden (4 answers total)
We're redoing our kitchen and are replacing several appliances. They were removed during demo and have been outside since Monday. I listed them on Freecycle and have people scheduled to pick up over the next few days.
Today, I had to leave in a hurry and didn't think about the weather forecast. It started raining around noon and will probably rain through the night. The appliances (dishwasher, gas cooktop, electric oven and range hood) have been outside and exposed the whole time.
Are they ruined? I want to do the right thing by the folks who've asked for the appliances, so I will definitely let them know even if you all tell me they will be ok.
Is there anything I or they should do after the rain stops? (I feel bad, but not so bad that I'm going to deal with outside stuff in the pouring rain, so it will probably be tomorrow ... which probably sounds awful, but it has been a hell of a day.)
