While we were away on Spring Break, my Cottages & Bungalows Magazine arrived. So, after all of the unpacking was done and the laundry was going I sat down for a few minutes to take a quick look.
(On a side note...why is it so much work coming home from a vacation?? It's just wrong!)
But anyway, while reading my mag, I came across a little tip that was credited to momoutnumbered.blogspot.com.
It stated that if your dishes were marred by silverware scratches you could use a little Bar Keepers Friend on them to get them out.
REALLY? Could it be true?
I thought these dishes were doomed!
I've had these dishes for probably 15 years! They are great Pfaltzgraff plates that are nice and heavy. Over all these years, I don't think I've chipped a single one.
But, all of the scratches make for an unappetizing table scape so when company comes, we use my newer dishes. Unfortunately, they are starting to show the same types of scrapes.
So, when I saw this tip I had to give it a try. I had some Bar Keepers Friend in my cleaning stash so, I whipped it right out.
I squirted a little bit on...
Scrubbed with a damp sponge (and a little muscle)...
...and noticed an immediate difference...
Notice the grey on the sponge! How exciting! It actually works!
OK, they don't look brand new but this is a huge improvement.
Funny thing is I think Daniel at momoutnumbered may have had the very same plates. I visited her blog but couldn't find the post so all I have to go on is the picture in the magazine. So...here is my magazine copycat photo:
So...here is a magazine tip that is tested and true!
Thank you Cottages & Bungalows (and Danielle at momoutnumbered). It really works.
