I love white dishes.
I mean, I’ve established the lengths I’ll go to for dishes in general.
But, oh my, how I especially love white dishes.
First of all, they go with everything. Every season, every holiday, every menu, and every table setting.
And since different patterns and styles of white dishes looked great mixed together, you can go crazy buying individual pieces all willy nilly.
Also, food looks great on white dishes, which is why restaurants use them.
But just like white blouses and white sofas and white cars, white dishes aren’t always the most practical.
Because dishes sometimes scratch, and if those dishes are white dishes, every scratch will show.
Bar Keepers Friend is a cleanser that you can find at grocery stores and Target/Walmart type places. You can also buy it on Amazon (that’s my referral link).
And before our kitchen remodel I had white laminate countertops (oh how I don’t miss those) and I used it to get marks off of those too.
But even with those countertops gone, I still keep Bar Keepers Friend around just for dish de-scratching purposes.
Of course as you use the dishes the scratches will return, and for day-to-day use I don’t worry about that.
But for holidays and dinner parties, I like to polish them up a bit so they set a pretty table.
I know this post sounds a lot like a commercial, but Bar Keepers Friend didn’t pay me to say nice things. I just really love their product.
And white dishes.
