Many of us who have installed the big white farm sink from Ikea (the Domsjo) end up shedding a tear or two when we notice our first grey scratch on our beautiful shiny white sink. It’s a sad, sad moment but it has to happen in order to break you in so you don’t spend the next several months washing overloaded sinks of dishes in absolute fear ;)
Before we had a dishwasher I spent the better part of 6 months hand washing dishes and scuffing my sink here and there. I do baby it quite a bit because it looks absolutely beautiful when it’s shiny and clean but there were a few places where I couldn’t remove the gray scratches. Even though they were small they drove me crazy!
I tried baking soda, bleach, vim, TONS of products that made my sink shine but nothing was removing the gray scratches and scuffs. I read online ages ago about Bar Keepers Friend but I couldn’t find it! Thankfully my friend The DIY Mommy told me that she spotted it at Canadian Tire!
Friends, it’s the answer to all your scuffy gray problems (can I get an Oprah hallelujah!)
It does a fantastic job of keeping your sink shiny and white…the scuffs and scratches wipe off and if there are any rust spots left in your sink from forgetting to wash a mason jar ring (ahem) they’ll come right off as well.
So there you have it. For a few bucks your sink will look brand new!
