Bar Keepers Friend - Cleanser & Polish

Bar Keepers Friend - Cleanser & Polish


Famous for removing rust, metal tarnish, mineral deposits, and stains from most hard surfaces.


BKF does not contain bleach, making it ideal for cleaning stainless steel.


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.


How to use BKF Cleanser & Polish

  • Sprinkle BKF onto a wet surface.
  • Add more or less to adjust strength.
  • Rub gently with a wet cloth or sponge.
  • Rinse thoroughly within a minute of application.
  • Wipe surface dry.


A Word of Caution about Bar Keepers Friend

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