How to fix a hole in the Fridge liner?

Whille I was cleaning the fridge this weekend I poked a hole in the liner with one of the racks. Looking for a suggestion on how to repair this.

In the past, I've cut a patch from a white plastic Clorox jug, and carefully covered a ding/crack in a home fridge lining (allowing about 3/4" overlap all around the damage). I used a clear, fast-setting 2-part epoxy, and was careful to hold the patch firmly in place (6 minutes) 'till the epoxy was set.

That repair lasted over 6 years (the fridge stayed with the house when we sold it).

A couple of other possibilities...

A dab of food grade silicone sealant if it's not a large hole. Probably better suited to repair a crack. If it's a crack, drill a hole at each end of it to prevent it from spreading further. Clean well with an alcohol prep pad and let that dry before applying the sealant.

Also, there is refrigerator liner repair kit available. If you can locate a shop that sells all kinds of appliance parts, they'll have it. (Not an RV shop, but one that carries parts for all kinds of home appliances. In this case, the liner of your RV fridge is no different from the liner of your home fridge.)

Thanks for the tips. I think I'll try the fridge liner repair kit or the clorox jug patch. They sound like the best bet.
