I've used Bar Keepers Friend for many years and LOVE the results I get when using it on brass, copper, fiberglass, and especially my white porcelain sinks. Doesn't take a lot of elbow grease, just a thorough washing with the cleanser and a rag.

      Marion, I get mine at my grocery store, Kroger. I think they carry it at Walmart too. It's located in the cleaning aisle near cleansers like Softscrub and Comet. Hope that helps!
