An Ode to Barkeepers Friend
 
Actung! Achtung!
Clean up on Burner Three!
okay, so right up front lets get this out of the way:
I'm not a pristine clean freak.
sometimes I just let it slide a bit.

here's what happens after deep snows bury the charcoal grill and the desperate cook sears stuff and does an oven finish.... salmon seems to be the worst offender....

40 minutes and a modicum of elbow grease later:

BKF is great stuff no doubt!

I recommend picking up a bottle of Dawn Power Dissolver. Spray it on the offending areas and walk away for 15-30 minutes. Most of the stuff will easily wipe out! Then you finish off the tough stuff with BKF. A lot less effort than 100% BKF.

Also, get yourself some blue scrubber sponges. They work better than a dish cloth.

I hate my glass-top stove but BKF has come to my rescue. If I have scorched on grease, I'll make a little paste from it and use a Dobie pad to scrub the crud off. My glass-top looks brand new if you don't see the tiny chips Himself put in when scraping crud with the tip of a pocket knife. :glare:

BKF is awesome, but I LOVE Dawn Power Dissolver! You just reminded me to check my bottle, there's only about a third left. Added it to my list. :smile:

Have you given any thought to scraping him off the floor? :angel:

:lol: No I haven't Addie, but I've thought about wiping the floor up WITH him! :lol:

I don't normally let it get so far gone - but now and then....

I'll keep the Dawn tip in mind - thanks!

Yeah, Dawn Power Dissolver...works great! It's also the reason I don't let Shrek wash my DeBuyer pans.

If you don't have any BKF, baking soda does a pretty darn good job with a damp rag or scrubber. I would have been able to get that skillet clean with baking soda. It would just take a bit more elbow grease than BKF.
