I was going to replace these dishes ( they were given to dh by his mom ( who has passed away) when he moved out on his own ). We have been together 10 years, so these are older than that. Barkeepers friend has taken away all the scratches! I saw it on pinterest and decided to try it. They were all as bad or worse than the top plate. The bottom is obviously after. I used the powder. If only try it on white, but it didn't damage any of the design.
