I did some research and tried some things. First vinegar, then a bleach cleaner, then a soft scrub [by this time my kitchen reeked], then lastly straight bleach. Each time I scrubbed the plates with one of those blue scouring pads attached to a sponge. I also tried scrubbing the plates right when I put the “cleaner” on and another plate after I let the “cleaner” sit.
I was supposed to end up with sparkling plates and a good post for WFMW.
The plates are still full of marks. This did not bother me before; I hadn’t noticed it. I was just happy the plates were food free and ready to use. Now, I see it all the time and think, “How could I not have noticed all those marks?”
I could probably ask for new plates for my 10th anniversary, but I have a lot of matching dishes/utensils of this set. [About the only thing in my house that matches.] Plus, that’s money that I’d rather have spent on a different present.
So, does anybody out there know a way for me to get these marks off?
