Cleaning Tip 1

Most of my housekeeping has the end goal of never needing to do it again in my life. I’ve got to change that philosophy because, lo and behold, every day brings more clothing and more dishes.


Part of my 12-step process has been to learn what does work with cleaning. Surely there are methods, products, tricks, etc. (besides death or a maid) that make housework easier. Right?

Cue discovering a new cleaner: Bar Keeper’s Friend.

No, I don’t have a link nor a picture. You have the internet; you search. That way you can’t blame me for being a sales-pitch blog and all that.

This is a picture of the inside of my crock pot after using the cleaner.


It’s actually a picture of the inside of my crock pot after my sister-in-law cleaned it for me. I didn’t even know she’d purchased the stuff. That is also why there is no “before” picture.

Just imagine streaks, stains, and several dubious brown spots.

The stuff seems to work so, if you have a kitchen implement or sink or whatever that’s listed on their bottle; try it. Hopefully your pan/pot/sink/child* will come out looking brand-new again.


*Do not try Bar Keeper’s Friend on your child.

    1. Funny you should mention that! My son just tried to make Rice Krispies Treats in our stainless steel pan …and forgot about the butter and marshmallows. There are still some spots but it worked really well!

  1. Chores are like the movie Groundhog Day, and I still somehow am surprised each day when they return. I have never thought to use bar keepers friend on my crockpot, but that’s brilliant. We discovered it when we moved into a house with porcelain sinks that stain and scratch with every use. Dumbest thing ever. May Bar Keeper’s Friend be your new BFF and bring you joy with every dish!

    1. 🙂 Thanks! I’ve used a pumice stone on a porcelain sink, and on a crockpot. I used the Bar Keeper’s Friend on a pan that W used for Rice Krispies Treats today …and didn’t realize wouldn’t work the same as my anodized ones.
