I use it on my stainless steel knives, water drips on my stainless steel refrigerator, and my deep stainless steel sink. It removes stains like magic!
I have tried wipes, windex, etc. on my refrigerator for those drips from the water and ice dispenser...that leave discolored drip lines down the door.
I make a paste of Bar Keepers Friend powder and water on a soft cloth...then gently wipe the drip stains. Next, I take a soft clean damp cloth to wipe off the product. Then I wipe with a dry cloth. Like magic, the drip stains are gone.
Note...each stainless steel manufacturer seems to have different finishes. Please test a small obscure spot before slathering the BKF paste all over your refrigerator or dishwasher or range. My refrigerator is a Frigidaire and my dishwasher is Kitchen Aid. But still those finishes can differ. So be careful until you are sure.
I make a paste of Bar Keepers Friend powder and water on a soft cloth, then I go to work rubbing the spots. I am a little more aggressive with this job...because the stains can be bad. Often I reapply the paste and rub again for stubborn stains. (Don't look at the old plastic handles below. They are suffering from dishwasher scrubbings.)
If you decide to try this on your stainless steel, please, please test on a small spot to make sure it does not do anything that you do not like.
I have everyday and better stainless steel. The better stainless is always hand washed in hot soapy water in the sink. My everyday flatware is in a kitchen drawer that can be used for anything and then thrown into the dishwasher.
Bar Keepers Friend is certainly my friend for cleaning things around my house! If you have any grungy stainless steel around your house, well, consider using Bar Keepers Friend. And of course...read the directions before you use it on any surface around your house. Test a small spot.
I hope this little tip helps you clean something around your house today.
