Learn how to easily remove black scratch marks from dinner plates.
My beautiful dinner plates were covered in those pesky black marks caused by forks and spoons and knives scraping on them during dinner. I was this close to buying a whole new set of plates because they looked so ugly.
Here’s a photo of my sad, scratched-up dinner plate:
I thought those black marks were permanent until I saw a pin on Pinterest claiming that you could actually get rid of them.
So I went to Walmart and bought some Barkeeper’s Friend. I was willing to give it a try since it only cost me $1.88.
I sprinkled some of the powder on my plate, then used a wet sponge to scrub. What the what?!?! Check it out:
Those “permanent” black marks disappeared like a bunny in a magician’s hat! I was shocked. Seriously. And I didn’t even have to scrub super hard or anything!
My dishes look new again! I can’t wait for my husband to get home to see if he’ll notice. How could he not, I mean, come on! Look at that sweeeeeeet before-and-after!
I have passed up a lot of dishes at thrift stores because they had these scratches all over them. No longer! I’m sure this stuff would work great for cleaning white porcelain sinks too. And I bet it would really help get haze off of drinking glasses. This stuff is magic!
The can says that you can also use this stuff on your glass cooktop, bathtub, stainless steel, and tile. I think I’ll be trying it out all over the house!
This is definitely a winning life hack. Boo yah!
