We are always on the lookout for tips on cleaning or a better product to get the job done right. Over the years one product we have used and loved is a cleanser called Bar Keeper’s Friend. What we’ve found is that it truly is your BFF when it comes to scouring. As far as I’m concerned you can dump all those other cleansers down the drain: Bon-Ami, Comet, Ajax etc. My experience with them is that they work to a degree but they never quite get all the stains out for a bright shiny clean.
Bar Keepers Friend works well on a variety of surfaces and materials from sinks to tubs- from porcelain to stainless steel, and on almost any counter-top surface. It removes stains and hard water spots. It does require a little bit of elbow grease and a scouring pad such as Scotch-Brite but the results are well worth the effort.
As an experiment I let our kitchen sinks, which are made of fire-glazed clay, get ridiculously dirty, and I mean gross! After cleaning with my BFF it’s as good as new.
