Competition to Win a Year’s Supply of Bar Keepers Friend

Bar Keepers FriendWhat is Bar Keepers Friend?

BKF apparently owes its existence to rhubarb!  Way back in 1882 a chemist from Indianapolis noticed how clean and shiny his tarnished pot was after cooking rhubarb.   Using an active ingredient that’s found in rhubarb he made a cleaner and sold it to the city’s taverns.   It worked so well that it was called ‘Bar Keepers Friend’!  The blurb here says: “BKF benefits from the unique cleaning power of Oxalic Acid (found in rhubarb, parsley and chives) and when combined with its unique mineral base and surfactant  blend, delivers a unique cleaning performance.” So there…….

Anyway, I’ve had a go at using the various Bar Keepers Friend products and am well impressed. I used the Bar Keepers Friend Power Cream on my shower tray this Bar Keepers Friendmorning and I got it all sparkling white and shiny in a remarkably short time. The Bar Keepers Friend Power Spray was put to good use cleaning my stainless steel hob and white sink and drainer – both brilliant! You can use the spray on glass too so I tried it out on my oven doors. Nice and clean but a bit streaky. However I think that was down to me taking too long to dry it off.

  1. My best cleaning tip is to concede that a man will never be able to do it to “her” standards so let her do the lot. Pardon me whilst I duck. @FledglingTwit 😉

  2. when you have nothing else in the home, a little washing powder is fantastic on a metal sink or hob. RT @xxxkellyannxxx (following on pinterest (g+ as kelly murray)

  3. A couple of hot lemons in a bowl of water, microwaved on full for a minute helps loosen grim and makes cleaning the beast easier!

  4. Leave a cup of white vinegar in your car overnight to rid it of that old car smell


  5. @baybdoll8701
    Dont have friends with kids (or Nephews) visit!! It keeps your house tidy!
    Vinegar and Lemon also are great for cleaning many things at home!

  6. My cleaning tip is to shine up stainless steel oven fronts, just use a little olive oil and a soft cloth. It’ll reduce scratches due to harsh abrasives and will gleam beautifully 🙂

  9. Place a steredent tablet in the toilet bowl overnight & wake up to a nice clean toilet in the morning

  10. for stubborn limescale stains around taps, dip cotton wool in white vinegar, place round the taps and leave for a few hours, remove and rinse with cold water, you may smell like a chip shop but you will have gleaming taps!

  13. Forget the elbow grease and let your products do the hard work. Apply then go and have a cup of tea, drinking it takes just the right time for the Bar Keepers Friend to do its thing and you just need to wipe it off!
