Bar Keepers Friend is a constant companion of mine. It will clean and polish your ceramic or stainless steel pots and pans and make your porcelain sink sparkle.
Have you ever tried Bar Keepers Friend? Well if you haven’t, let me introduce you. This fetching find was discovered years ago from a dear friend who happened to be working in a William Sonoma store at the time. We were chit chatting in my kitchen, and she noticed that my sink had stainless steel streaks in it. You know, the kind that come from scrubbing a sticky stubborn pan and it scoots about in the sink leaving silver trails everywhere. She kindly suggested I try Bar Keepers Friend, a product she used at work, to remedy both problems, the sticky pans and the streaks (without scratching!) I ran out and bought some the very next day and it’s been a staple cleaning product in my house ever since!
Some of you may know that I am an avid antiquer. (Is that a word?) I pick up sweet little enamel pots and pans and plates and bowls any chance I get. But the old ones usually have stains and discoloration from years of love and use. I had accepted that it was all just part of the charm. Until recently. I put a sprinkle of this stuff on and it scrubbed it right off.
I was astonished! Why hadn’t I thought of that earlier!? So I decided that I just had to share my discovery with all of you!
Would you just look at that sweet antique enamel double boiler. Good as new. But it’s not. Which is even better in my book. Old and charming with a cleaned up look. Perfect.
Some tips about Bar Keepers Friend ::
- use it to clean porcelain and stainless steel sinks
- for tough sticky stains in pot and pans, sprinkle some in with a tiny mist of water, let sit a few minutes, then rub clean with a sponge
- works beautifully on discolored enamelware items
- it has no smell at all which is a total plus if you ask me!!
Disclamer : This is not a paid post. I just simply love this product and wanted to share it with you!
May your sinks and pans be shiny and bright!
