How to Remove Scratch Marks from Dishes with Bar Keepers Friend -- I wonder if this will work on my kitchen sink
How to remove scratch marks from dishes, and other cleaning tips.
How to Remove Scratch Marks from Dishes Almost 18 years ago, as a wedding gift, I got simple, plain white dishes. I love them. They go with all of the plain white serving platters and bowls I've collected over the years. For the last 10 years, they've been covered in scratch marks from my silverware. I tried scrubbing them with baking soda like Heloise said I should. Nothing. I tried the Magic Eraser. Not so magical. I was ready to buy new dishes. I decided to stop in at our local Ace Hardware. The helpful clerk suggested I try Barkeepers Friend. I applied the Liquid Bar Keepers Friend with a damp sponge and a little elbow grease. For the really tough scratches, I added a bit of the powdered version and applied a little more elbow grease. The results speak for themselves.
So many amazing housecleaning tricks, your head will spin!
