An Amazing Way to Remove Scuff Marks From Dinnerware!

3 Materials
Over time and with heavy use, ceramic plates, dishes, bowls, and other dishes get those little dark scuff marks on them which make them not so pretty. My mom gave me a set of Correlle plates and bowls when I left for college. After a few years, they weren't pristine anymore. Thankfully I found a super easy, quick, and cheap way to get them back!
I'm talking about those little marks you can see there in the middle of the plate which kinda look like veins . Mine weren't terrible, though some people have much darker ones. This will work for light and darker marks!
The first thing you need to do is get your plate wet.
Next, sprinkle just a little of Bar Keepers Friend onto the plate. Then let it sit for 3-5 minutes.
Take a soft paper towel and gently scrub the Bar Keepers Friend into the plate, until all the scruff marks are gone!
Then rinse and be amazed at the results!
I went on to use this for our Corelle bowls too! It's so quick and easy you guys! I am a huge fan of this product!

    I use Pyrex measuring cups in my microwave and they have turned white, so maybe this will work.

    Does this work on darker dishes too? We have a set of black octagon shaped dishes that I love but they are getting very scratched up.

    I used a magic eraser on my Correll dishes and ruined them. The top layer came off, so they would grab every bit of dirt in the dishwasher and come out dirtier than when they went in. I had to recycle them.

    Bar Keepers Friend is amazing. I use it all the time, especially on my stainless steel cookware. It get tea and coffee stains out of your cups. I love to clean with it.
