Bar Keepers Friend is an inexpensive and great multipurpose cleaner and polisher
I stumbled upon it while researching for an effective cleaner for the hard water spots in my kitchen. Bar Keepers Friend has been highly rated on Amazon and hence I decided to give it a try and needless to say I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
How to use Bar Keepers Friend multipurpose cleaner and polisher?
Bar Keepers Friend uses a non-bleach formula that helps quickly removes rust, hard water, grime and tough stains. To use it, mix the powder with a little water and spread it across the dish or vessel you are trying to clean, leave it for a couple of minutes before gently scrubbing the dish or vessel. I do recommend using rubber gloves while handling the powder, as it is harsh on the skin leaving it dry and itchy.
Practical everyday uses of Bar Keepers Friend, Multipurpose Cleaner and Polisher
My initial use was limited to the kitchen, where it helped me to effortless clean my stainless steel skillets and copper bottoms pans in a few minutes. It has helped clean my stainless steel kitchen sink removing hard water spots and leaving it shinning and spotless. Even the hard water stains on my kitchen taps have just disappeared. It also works well to remove discoloration from glass or ceramic cooks tops.
After seeing some great results in the kitchen I used it to clean my bathrooms especially for water stains, rust spots and grime. It helped remove stains from the faucets, glass door, taps and bath tubs. Bar Keepers Friend works well on stainless steel, chrome, glass, porcelain, ceramic acrylic and fiber glass surfaces. I have also used it clean car parts and tools especially made of aluminum, chrome and steel. The key ingredient is Oxalic acid which is an effective cleaning agent and rust remover.
One Word of Caution: Do not use this product on cheap Chrome plated products as it can easily dissolve the Chrome plating. In fact I would recommend that you use a very diluted concentration and leave it on the object you are cleaning for less than a minute before washing it.
The best part about Bar Keeper’s Friend is that it only costs a couple of dollars, so it is of great value. We would love to hear your experience with household cleaners, please share them?
