How to clean cutlery scuffs off of dishes

Are you working your way through your “100 Things 2 Do Before the Holidays” checklist?

I am, and while I’m not quite as prepared as I’d like to be, I have crossed off items each day – and who doesn’t love crossing things off of a checklist?

One item that wasn’t on my checklist specifically, but is a task I do once a year before Holiday guests see my ugly dishes (sorry guests during the rest of the year) is to clean the cutlery scuffs off of my dishes.

I’ll show you what I mean:

This is our china (maybe it’s not really china – whatever you call dishware nowadays).  It’s totally clean – been through the dishwasher about 320 times this year – but look at the cutlery scuffs on the orchid.

You can see every knife and fork scrape from all 320 meals we ate on these plates!

All year I manage to forget that these marks shouldn’t be on my dishes and we go on with life, but the Holidays bring in “outsiders” that aren’t used to our day-to-day filth/damage and I’m suddenly confronted with how dirty the plates look.

Funny how that works eh?  I have drywall patches in my foyer that I’ve left unpainted for months, but when company came over last week, I suddenly noticed them.

Super-simple, non-abrasive and won’t damage your dishes;

Marble paste

Just a small amount rubbed in circles over the scuffs and my dishes look new again!

Just so you don’t think I went out and bought new china, I created this short video:

I have tried Barkeeper’s Friend and while it also removes cutlery scuffs, it is very abrasive.  Not as abrasive as Comet or Ajax, but enough to damage your dishes, so I highly recommend the ENJO Marble Paste over anything else.

 

If the ease-of-use, non-abrasiveness and incredible results aren’t enough to talk you into trying the marble paste – just look at what it does to stainless steel!

I’ve cleaned out the left sink using water and a dishcloth (the right sink has a bit of marble paste in it).  I thought it was clean…

until I cleaned it with the ENJO marble paste.

You should see the results on stainless steel appliances!

The ENJO marble paste is also great for getting coffee and tea stains out of mugs – another pre-Holiday tidy you might want to do if you’re having overnight guests.

No pressure, this isn’t a sponsored post and I don’t get an affiliate fee for recommending it, I just wanted to help make your Holiday prep a little easier.

Hope you’re having a warm and cozy weekend!

Have a great one!
