ENQUIRE

In 1882, an Indianapolis chemist noticed how clean and shiny his tarnished pot was after cooking rhubarb. Using an active ingredient that’s found in the plant he formulated a talcum-smooth cleanser and sold it to the city’s taverns. So pleased were his customers with how well it worked on bar fixtures, the product was dubbed the “Bar Keepers Friend”

The original cleaning powder, a multi-purpose cleanser recommended by many leading cookware and kitchen brands. BKF is truly unique; it is a cleanser and non-corrosive polish all-in-one. Eco-friendly; no bleaches, toxins or phosphates plus it is bio-degradable so safe to use in waste-water systems. Bar Keepers Friend® Cleanser & Polish is famous for removing rust, metal tarnish, mineral deposits, and stains from most hard surfaces. Recommended for porcelain cooktops, stainless steel, copper, granite, brass, chrome, fibreglass, glass, shower screens, removing rust stains, laminated and non-porous countertops, cement, ceramic tile, grout and imitation marble.

Being a powder, you can make either a thick paste or a watery slurry to match different surfaces and stains. A paste will be more acidic than the slurry. You’ll need more acidity when dealing with mineral deposits, or rust stains. A watery slurry is ideal for removing tarnish from a stainless steel pan, or sink. This is the original cleanser & polish in the larger 595g size.

A Word of Caution about Bar Keepers Friend (BKF)

Because our Cleanser & Polish is acidic and contains polishing compounds, BKF may etch or dull delicate surfaces. Before applying to fibreglass, plastics, anodized aluminium or brushed metal surfaces, such as appliance exteriors, test in a small, hidden area first.
