I don't use Barkeepers Friend every time. Maybe someone will give you a more scientific answer but, after reading your post, I remembered that I put a pot up, a few minutes ago, with some discoloration. I sprinkled some baking soda in the pot and wiped with a wet rag and the stain disappeared. I won't stop using Barkeepers Friend but I might not use it as often.
There is a warning on the can that say says "Caution: Contains oxalic acid. ..."
The baking soda is the oposite of an acid so maybe another reader will be able to elaborate.
