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.

I've no idea... but my problem has just been fixed!

I rubbed the stained area with half a lime and baking soda and like a miracle the stain disappeared!

Thanks Skillet and Gossie for trying to help!!!

A relatively weak bleach solution works wonders (bleach, hot water, and some dishwashing liquid). Removes tea and coffee discoloring from stainless steel flatware beautifully. Fill the pressure cooker with the solution and dump other little S.S. bits you have around in as well. Leave it all for 5 minutes, wash, rinse and admire!
