Today I want to talk about one of the most underrated products in the cleaning aisle—Bar Keepers Friend. I’ve kept a bottle of this cleaning powder under my sink since back when I originally posted about using it to clean your dishes. (You’ll find out more about that below.) While I was amazed by how well it did that one specific job, I didn’t really think of any other ways to put my bottle of Bar Keepers Friend to good use! cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
I didn’t think much of it, until recently when I spotted a new Bar Keepers Friend product at the store. It still has the same formula, but in the form of a “soft cleanser” rather than a powder. (I would compare the texture to Soft Scrub.) I bought a bottle out of curiosity, and it got me thinking about how I never really took the time to look into more uses for Barkeeper’s Friend. So this week I did just that, and I came away with more useful tips than I ever could have hoped for! Today I’ll be sharing those tips with you, so you can see just how useful this cleaner can be in your home! 🙂
14 Genius Uses For Bar Keepers Friend
You can use Bar Keepers Friend to remove those light scratches and marks on your plates, bowls, and other dishes. I wrote a whole post about how well it works, and I got some great before-and-after photos out of it. You can check it out at the link below! cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
2. Knives & Flatware
Whether your kitchen knives or flatware are starting to rust, or if they’re just looking a bit dull, a quick scrub with Bar Keepers Friend will do wonders.
3. Tarnished Silver
You can use Bar Keepers Friend to clean tarnished silver trays and serving dishes. Use it sparingly, as a little goes a long way on silver! You’ll be shocked at how shiny and clean your silver can look. This little pitcher was a vintage thrift store find that was horribly tarnished. I honestly didn’t think it would ever look new again! But after a couple of minutes of scrubbing it was bright and shiny!
