Sorry but no before and after. This technique using the condensed air resulted in about an 85-90% improvement, I would estimate. I do believe that using actual dry ice, wrapped safely in a towel and while using gloves, would give even better results. It's much simpler to squire the air though!

There are several informing YouTube videos as well as how to's on the net. I just googled how to remove dents from stainless steel.

BTW, this process is arrears to be used widely in auto repair shops to get smaller to medium dents out of damaged cars.

This is REALLY interesting to me. I have a fridge with an indentation on its door, and despite some attempts, I have not been able to "pop" them out. Do you have before and after pictures? Is there any residual effect on the finish/surface after applying such a fix? My fridge has a matte/brushed stainless steel finish to it, so I am always hesitant to do much to its surface.

A stainless steel fridge. It has some dents in the door. If you heat the dents with a hair dryer, etc, then apply dry ice, the dents will "pop out". And it's true, although we ended up using a can of compressed duster air like you'd use to clean dust and debris from your computer keyboard.

What kind of appliance gets fixed with dry ice? That sounds interesting.

I've worked with dry ice before. I want to fog up a stairwell that nobody will be in (except for some kind of mechanical monster that will pop out of the fog). Nobody is going to get near the ice as the stairwell will be barricaded.

Just be mindful of the cautions to know about dry ice - especially if kids are nearby (sorry, it's the Mom in me!)

You might want to try this instead:

ABOUT DRY ICE

Dry Ice Frostbite
Dry ice is extremely cold! Skin contact kills the cells, giving you a dry ice burn. It only takes a couple of seconds to get burned, so it's best to use tongs or gloves when handling dry ice. Don't eat dry ice. If you use it to cool a drink, be careful that you don't accidentally get a piece of dry ice in your mouth or accidentally swallow some.

Asphyxiation
Dry ice forms carbon dioxide gas. Although the carbon dioxide isn't toxic, it changes the chemistry of the air so that there is a lower percentage of oxygen. This is not an issue in a well-ventilated area, but it can cause problems in enclosed spaces. Also, the cool carbon dioxide gas sinks to the floor of a room. The increased concentration of carbon dioxide is more likely to cause problems for pets or children than for adults, both because they have a higher metabolism and because they may be closer to the floor where the concentration of carbon dioxide is highest.

Explosion Hazard
Dry ice is not flammable or explosive, but it exerts pressure as it changes from solid dry ice to gaseous carbon dioxide. If dry ice is placed in a seal container, there is a risk of the container rupturing or of the cap rifling off of the container when you open it. A dry ice bomb produces extremely loud noise and shoots out pieces of the container and dry ice. You could harm your hearing and become injured by the container. Pieces of dry ice could become embedded in your skin, giving you internal frostbite. To avoid these dangers, don't seal dry ice in a bottle, jar or locking cooler. It's fine in a paper bag in your refrigerator or freezer or in a cooler without a tight seal.

Toying with the idea of creating a little Halloween display. Those fog machines just aren't powerful enough. Anyone know where you can pick up dry ice in or around J.C.?
