Clean Plates

Lately I have been on a search for cheap things to put in my new house.  I would love expensive items, but hey I am a single mom living on a nurses salary. I am so excited to finally be living on my own and so scared! There is so much to buy.  Can't someone throw me a NON bridal shower? Chelsie? Anyone? 

I found these plates at the DI.  I love them.  My sister paid good money for brand new ones. These were on sale for 50 cents each.  Even though they were really scratched I knew I could fix them.  I saw a great tutorial here

I went to Home Depot and bought Bar Keepers Friend the liquid version and the powder version. I put a little on these plates and scrubbed away. 



They look like new plates! I am so happy with these results!
Has anybody else tried this?
