As I prepared to leave for college my mother bought me a set of Corelle dishes. My husband also had some that he added to our collection once we were married. While we have loved them, we have broken many of them, and scratched the rest.  As a frugal person, I like to keep what I have nice looking as long as possible, so I really wanted to learn how to remove scratches from dinnerware, specifically my ceramic plates and bowls.DIY cleaning tutorial on how to remove scratches from dinnerware plates and bowls. Super easy too!Most of the scratched plates and bowls aren’t terrible looking, but if they were gone it sure would help me keep loving what I have! Isn’t that the beauty of deep cleaning things? It’s why I love cleaning hacks and tips.

I looked up how to remove scratches from dishes, and I found many people raving about how easy it was to do if you used one of my favorite products – Bar Keepers Friend.

For a few dollars, that little golden canister does a whole lot around the house, especially in the kitchen.

I didn’t want to scrub my dishes with something too abrasive like a scour pad, so I grabbed some Viva® Vantage® to help me scrub as they have a nice scrubby texture with a terry cloth feel. They are great towels for scrubbing toothpaste off bathroom counters, shining stainless steel appliances and glassware, as well as scrubbing off grime on stove tops. I figured they’d be perfect to help me get my dinnerware looking fantastic. DIY tutorial on how to remove scratches from plates and bowls
