We have one set of dishes. Our white fiestaware dishes are our everyday dishes and our best china. They are used constantly, and we love them. They are durable and simple.
But, it has bothered me for some time that our plates have little metal marks all over them from our silverware. I know it shouldn't be a big deal, but this is the kind of thing that keeps me up at night. Well, it kept me up before we had two little girls to keep us up at night.
Anyway, I have tried everything I could think of to remove the marks, but to no avail. I had even begun to look into buying new dishes.
I did a Google search on my problem and one person recommended using a cleaning powder called "Bar Keepers Friend." I picked up a can of it at Target tonight for $1.67, still thinking it was a hopeless cause, but just maybe...
Well, after using just a little water, a little powder, a wet towel, and hardly any elbow grease, all the marks are gone.
Amazing! Dazzling! Thrilling!
My plates look brand new. Yay!
Thank you Google, thank you Target, thank you Bar Keepers Friend.
