The other good thing about Bar Keeper's Friend is it comes in liquid form as well as powdered form. That makes it a lot easier to use.

I don't have the cleaning gene either. I have tried to get it but it's just not in me. I much prefer to tackle a big mess than do regular small cleanings.

I tried the liquid and it seemed to be less effective than the powder.

Mine shows a little bit when I'm cooking. I always have soapy water on one side of the sink and wash up as I go during natural breaks in the cooking cycle. That way I avoid having a big chore left after I eat, when I'm contentedly full and feeling extra lazy.

I have a spray bottle of Barkeeper's Friend that I use to clean my glass stove top. It's more convenient than a powder because you can spray it on and let it soak for a while before scrubbing.

Do you have to dilute it in order to spray it?

My DW cleans up right after we eat. I try to be helpful by rinsing and putting things in the dishwasher as I go, but I'm not always very good at it.

She's very good at getting the dark spots off the outside of my SS pans. They look new.

Yes and yes for me...
