Is your "Stainless Steel" not so "Stainless"?

The Mr. I just did some Spring cleaning this morning. And I just have to tell you all that I LOVE Bar Keepers Friend.

No, they didn't pay me to write this. I just love the product!

I got it a few months ago as a sample with my pots and pans set and now I use it for EVERYTHING. I don't know how we could deal with cleaning all of the modern stainless steel appliances in our condo without it.




Price: About $3

Where to buy it: Grocery Store, BedBath&Beyond, or online

Where we use it: On stainless steel faucets/ sinks to get out water spots, on pots and pans to remove burn marks, on shower doors to remove residue, and (BEST of all) on our stainless steel fridge that always seems to get water marks and finger prints on it.

Why it's awesome: I even showed my MIL (who's been a homemaker for 30 years) how to clean her stainless steel refrigerator with it. She was FLOORED at how clean it was -- she kept saying the fridge looked like new!

Don't believe me? Check out the review on Apartment Therapy.

How to use it: Use a damp cloth and make a paste with the powder. Rub the paste over the object that you want cleaned. Wipe the paste off with a wet cloth and dry the object. Repeat for stubborn stains.

What are your "must have" Spring Cleaing products?

Thanks for sharing! I can't live without vinegar. It's safe and cleans beautifully. Stain in your rug? Vinegar gets it out. Cleaning jewelry? Mixture of vinegar and water works wonders. And, the smell disappears as soon as it dries. Love it.
