The multiple-use cleaner to clean ALL of the things

After all the sink shining, you can also use this wonder powder on clearing soap scum from shower glass, toilets, chrome taps, chrome light fittings, ceramic sinks and baths, rust removal, oven glass, oven racks, stove tops, shining stainless steel appliances, burnt pots and pans. It’s been said to also work its magic on cutlery scratched plates and bowls and even erases those annoying brown marks you get on top of your toaster. It truly is your most MAGIC FRIEND indeed.

Elbow grease be gone – Bar Keepers Friend the ultimate cleaning hack

How you clean with the powder varies depending on the job. You can give a light sprinkle followed by a wipe over and rinse for a quick refresh or for tougher jobs, make a paste and apply a scrubbing brush. Either way, prepare to be dazzled with this cleaning tip game changer!

Disclaimer: it’s worth mentioning that there are occasional comments from people who comment about the smell. Some love it, some.. not so much. But the reflective sink is worth it. Remain focussed on the big picture here people!
