Bar Keepers Friend® Cleanser is 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.
