How do you remove flatware marks from stoneware?

by Chilicat
I have 40+ year old Pfaltzgraff Yorktowne stoneware that I use daily and still love, but some pieces are filled with flatware marks. I’ve tried everything from Comet, to Magic Eraser, to dishwasher detergent, and vinegar and baking soda. While the combination lightened the marks, nothing removed them.

Please help me restore my vintage stoneware to its former glory. Thanks!
A bowl with fork whisk marks from beating an egg. Admittedly, the wrong vessel for the job 😏 however many of the plates have knife and fork marks on them from normal daily use.

    have you tried Bon ami

  • My other suggestions would be Barkeeper's Friend or Cream of Tartar. Pfaltzgraff used to make a stoneware cleaner, I'm not sure if they still do, though.

    Have you tried Bar Keepers Friend, I read earlier that it is great for removing knife scratches on white dinnerware. Good luck and then I would either put this plate in the china cabinet, or hang it on the wall. After you get it clean, perhaps you could email Pfaltzgraff or research their website and see if this is typical wear for their stoneware. Is it possible that a protective finish has worn off after 40 years. Maybe it is not dishwasher safe? Good Luck!

    Barkeeper's Friend or Cream of Tartar sauce should actually remove the marks

    Corelle used to have a cleaner for their dishes. Also look for the liquid cleaner for the flat cook tops.
