      Nice...Look like they cleaned up pretty well. I've used barkeepers helper for many years arround the house, love it. It just did not work too well on my sooted up pieces. But looks like you got it to work on yourz, they look good.

      I've heard of Barkeepers Helper or Bartenders Helper, but have never used it. How well does it work on stainless steel, anyone know???
    3. sslam sslam, 6 years ago
      Actually the one I used is called barkeepers friend. So not sure if it is the same as what Melanie is talking about. I use it on everything including stainless it takes out stains, rust etc. Had no luck with it getting soot or haze off the glass insulators though. It's a powder you wet and make into a paste.
    4. sslam sslam, 6 years ago
      Actually they have one specifically made for stainless steel.

      Sslam is correct it's Bar Keepers Friend
      ....but the one I purchased isn't a powder...it's a thick liquid....kinda the consistency of Soft Scrub. Found it at Walmart.
    6. sslam sslam, 6 years ago
      Yeah, I know they also have soft scrub, but I have never used it, will have to check it out.

      OK, great. Thanks Melanie & Salem. I'm off to Wally-World tomorrow, then, to pick me up a bottle. [;>)

      I have found a couple ideas on making rustic wall sconces with these.
      My hubby has some work to do ;)
