My latest BFF for Cleaning Appliances!



First of all, I have to make the standard disclaimer – try this on an inconspicuous spot before smearing it all over your appliance!  Now, on to the tip!  How many of you have a love/hate relationship with your “stainless” appliances?  Me too! First of all, I put “stainless” in quotation marks because I have come to question how many of us have true stainless appliances. Why?  Because I recently discovered that a magnet adheres to my fridge – and magnets typically do not adhere to stainless steel!  So, perhaps it is an alloy, but it is obviously not 100% stainless steel.  But, I digress.  I recently had had my fill with yet again trying to clean my appliances with stainless steel cleaner and feeling like I was just smearing stuff around making more streaks than I had to begin with.  So, I took out my Bar Keepers Friend (SOFT CLEANSER VERSION) and tried a tad on my dishwasher – in an inconspicuous – well we already covered that.  Anyway, it worked like a charm!  So, I cleaned the entire dishwasher surface and it shone like the first day I got it!  Amazing!  So, I repeated the process on my other appliances and every one of them looked fantastic.  A few things to remember:

  • I have only tried this with the “SOFT CLEANSER” version pictured above – and recommend you do the same.  The powdered version would be too abrasive.
  • Shake well
  • Test it on your particular surface
  • Use a SMALL amount like the directions say to
  • Go with the “grain” of the appliance when applying, rinsing and drying
  • It says rinse within 60 seconds – make sure you do!
  • A flour sack towel is great for drying

I wouldn’t use this as your every-day cleaner, I don’t think it is meant to be that.  But, after application, it does make daily cleaning with your regular choice of cleanser much easier!
