Bar Keepers Friend

I would say I have had many friends in my life.  Some stick around longer than others, but one that has stuck with me through the years is "Bar Keepers Friend".  I can't live without this 'friend' who sure can brighten my day!

If you have never used Bar Keepers Friend, you are going to want to give it a try.  I've never regretted it.
This product removes rust, stains, and tarnish.  It cleans and polishes stainless steel, glass-ceramic cooktops, fiberglass bathing fixtures, sinks, bathtubs, copper, brass, porcelain, chrome, plastic dishes, tile floors and marble sills.

As with any product you have never used, be sure to read the instructions/cautions carefully.  Also, know what products you can and can not use on your household items.  Use the wrong thing and you could destroy something valuable to you.

I have a skillet that gets used all the time to brown meat and many other things.  Sometimes it just doesn't get as clean as I would like it to after a normal washing.

Enter stage right, Bar Keepers Friend:

Just a little bit of scrubbing.  Seriously, I think maybe it was under a minute.  See the difference?  I've seen pans a lot worse than mine and even with a little bit of soaking they can look like new again.

And this pan is probably the 2nd most used pan in the kitchen:

I {love} shiny, and this just makes me smile!
