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.

Mrs C
In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
