Have you ever wondered how to get the silverware marks off of your Corelle Corning Ware dishes?
Perhaps they've been handed down to you or you've just had a set of your own for a long time. Maybe you've just been eyeing a set at your local antique mall, but weren't sure how to clean the Corelle dishes. It is easier than you may think.
We have had a set of the Corelle Corning Ware Meadow pattern ever since we were married. They belonged to my husband's parents and were his as a bachelor. Because of their durability, I really didn't want to get rid of them, even after we were given nice everyday dishes for wedding gifts. For some reason, the last 15 years of our marriage have been hard on these bowls. They have started showing their age with lots of silverware marks on them. Every one of the bowls looked about like this one. Pretty gross, right?
I absolutely hate to throw away perfectly good dishes, but these were just sitting in the cabinet not being used much. When I noticed that my husband was choosing my glass measuring bowls over these for his evening cereal snack, I had to ask why. "They look dirty," he said. Well, I couldn't argue with him there. I pulled out my secret weapon and got to work.
To clean those pesky little silverware marks, simply wet the bowl and sprinkle in a little bit of the Bar Keepers Friend (available at most grocery stores). With a wet scrubby sponge, work the cleansing powder into the water in a circular fashion. Using a little elbow grease, scrub the marks away. Rinse when finished.
