Wanted to let folks know that I had great success with Bar Keepers friend last weekend. Rubbed a little on the stove, unpainted chrome (and will stay that way). BKF worked like a charm. It easily removed the red rust specks and got all but the deepest rust spots. Came out nice and shiny. Then I took it to the fridge (painted)-once again all minor rust discoloration came right off with a little elbow grease. I kept going to the 30 plus years of rust on the hinges, and of course cleaned those up too. After I just wiped it all down with a wet rag. The only place it didn't do so well is the metal heater. Love the fact that I can use this stuff inside and out. Gloriously removes the black streaks and oxidation on the fiberglass without resorting to harsh chemicals. Thanks for the tip! Now on to that leaky kitchen window.

Jamie, glad to hear that you, too, have found BKF very helpful as most of us have used this product as well. With your leaky window, suggest you remove it, put in butyl tape, reinstall and no more leaks. I actually overkilled by putting in a very high grade caulking, not silicone, on the outside of the window frames as well.

Yep, that's the plan. Just need a sunny day and an assistant who knows what they are doing!

Glad to hear that your are going in the right direction.....as someone else reported recently, when putting the exterior window in place, wet the butyl tape with water so you can move it around while the person in the inside lines up the screw holes....I did not do this, and had a somewhat difficult time lining it up. Good luck..Jim
