Turquoise hostess clean up

I recently bought a turquoise hostess at a value village in near by Bellingham,WA. I paid $7.99 for it even tho it has some major scratches and needed some elbow
grease. I wanted to try out the BKF I purchased a while back. I have heard you all mention how great it works and wanted to see for myself. In the past I've used oven cleaner, comet, magic eraser and good old fashioned dish soap with varying results. I was quite impressed with the BKF. So here are some before and after shots!
On a separate trip down south I found these beauties in the cart to be put out at good will. I paid $3.99 for the 473 and the 442 and $2.99 for the 47-. The 2 sandalwood pieces aren't my favourite but they are growing on me. The butterfly gold is also not a favourite but I love that size!


  1. Wow -- the turquoise cleaned up great! I have a smaller bowl in that color that I think went with a chip and dip set. I didn't know they made the hostess sets in turquoise. Gorgeous!

  2. I didn't know there was a turquoise hostess! It's now on my list.

  3. Thank you for every other fantastic post. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect method of writing?
    I've a presentation subsequent week, and I'm on the search for
    such info.

  4. I appreciate, cause I discovered exactly what I was
    having a look for. You've ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye

  5. I've been told there was a chip and dip and a hostess but I've been wrong in the past :)

    1. This is the chip and dip I was thinking of:

      I found the small bowl, but nothing else and no cradle!

  6. Nice find, and beautiful job on the clean-up. BKF really IS our friend! We probably should rename it Pyrex Keepers' Friend :)

  7. It's so rewarding to make Pyrex pieces clean and shiny again - nice work on yours!
