About Bar Keepers Friend
Messy, grimy, mouldy and rusty – wipe these words away with your new best household friend. The premium all round cleanser and polish, Bar Keepers Friend makes light work of the toughest cleaning jobs – and has been doing so since 1882.
The good news is that Bar Keepers Friend is now available in South Africa from selected Makro stores, or online at www.makro.co.za. You can also find it at The Culinary Equipment’s Lanseria store, or at www.culinaryequipment.co.za.
The history of Bar Keepers Friend takes us back to 132 years ago, when a chemist in Indianapolis, in the United States, realised that his tarnished pot had become noticeably clean and shiny after he used it to cook rhubarb. Isolating the active ingredient from the plant, he mixed it with a non-bleach formula to create a cleanser that quickly became a favourite amongst the owners of the city’s taverns, thanks to its ability to brighten up brass.
It was not long before households worldwide saw that the formula that worked so well on metals had a similar effect on many other surfaces, from stainless steel to porcelain and ceramics. Small wonder, then, that Bar Keepers Friend has been embraced not only by companies requiring an industrial-strength cleaner but also in homes, where, thanks to its effectiveness, it is able to do the job of several surface-specific detergents.
In fact, in addition to cleaning everything from your bathroom taps to your golf clubs, you can even use Bar Keepers Friend to remove rust, lime build-up and other stains caused by hard water, and it is ideal to keep grout between tiles looking clean and mould-free. Because it is chlorine free, it can be used on surfaces that may be damaged by other detergents, like stainless steel. It cleans fibreglass and acrylic without scratching, shines and removes the tarnish from copper and brass, and can also be used on non-porous surfaces. Unlike other hash detergents, it can be used on chrome, which makes it perfect for polishing your car, bicycle, and even your tools.
What is more, the unique, plant-based formulation is still in place, which means that Bar Keepers Friend is not only gentler than most commonly available detergents; it is also environmentally friendly and biodegradable. Plus, because it contains no chemicals (including ammonia), there is no harsh odour. And yet, it can be relied on to shift even the toughest stains that no other product can budge!
The product is available in both the original powder and liquid form, both of which pack a cleaning punch. The powder, which boasts industrial strength and abrasive heavy duty cleaning, is ideal for use on stubborn stains where other cleaners have failed. Use it in hard water areas, or to scrub out those stained pots. The liquid, on the other hand, is a mild-abrasive household cleaner that will put the sparkle back into any household surface.
The product is available at a suggested retail price of R99 for the liquid Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser and R79 for the powder Cleanser and Polish formulation. At 737g and 425g respectively, that makes Bar Keepers Friend the lowest priced premium cleanser on the market, offering true value for money.
