I have been looking for a cleaner to clean my kids tub. I have used bleach and comet and Mr clean and Fabuloso. NOTHING HELPED!
1. I wet my tub, and sprinkled it on the tub and two minutes later I wiped away months of hard water stains along with grease and dirt from a hard day of play. I also sprinkled some on this Red Devil 0326 Steel Wool, 3 Coarse, 8 Pads ... , and scrubbed at the stains that I felt needed a bit extra tender care lol.
Look I have been trying to get this tub clean for months, and last night it was done. I am amazed!!! IF THE PICS DONT SELL YA.. I DONT KNOW WHAT WILL!!!

As a retired PhD chemist, I am always interested in great home cleaning products and how they work. One active ingredient in Bar Keepers Friend is oxalic acid, an extremely strong chelating agent that I am familiar with from the laboratory. Without getting too technical, a chelating agent binds super strongly to metals (magnesium, calcium, iron, etc.). Since bathroom scale is mainly magnesium carbonate with some calcium carbonate, oxalic acid reacts with the scale, sucking out the metal and turning the carbonate to carbon dioxide (a gas), making the scale magically disappear. If you are interested, the chemical reaction for oxalic acid reacting with magnesium carbonate is HOOCCOOH + MgCO3 --> MgOOCCOO + CO2 + H2O. Similarly, rust is iron oxide, and the oxalic acid binds to the iron, breaking up the rust and making it disappear when rinsed away.
Oxalic acid is a strong chemical, and the use of gloves is strongly advised, as well as not breathing it or getting it in your mouth or eyes. Cleaning precautions that you take with any strong cleaning product (i.e. bleach) are recommended for oxalic acid.
After inadvertently letting a pot boil dry I scrubbed it with soap, baking soda, other cleaners, etc., but could not get the discoloration from my pot (discolored both inside and out). After scrubbing with Bar Keepers friend with a standard sponge for roughly 5-minutes my pot looked almost new again--an additional 5-minute scrub and it looked like it new and unused.
This is defiantly my 'go-to' cleaner now.
I have tried the Bar Keepers Friend on several things, tile grout, tub, stainless appliances, stainless sink etc. Everything got super clean. Oh, and my other favorite: my glass cooktop. Wow, nothing ever got the cooktop clean like Bar Keepers Friend and with hardly any effort. I used to use the Weiman's glass cooktop cleaner, but not only did I have to scrub and scrub, it never made all the marks go away. I threw the Weiman's in the garbage after buying Bar Keepers friend. Bar Keepers Friend does have a slight peculiar odor at first, but when I use it all the time, it doesn't phase me. This product works like a charm. Thank you Bar Keepers Friend!!!
What does it do? It very gently eats the top layer of molecules off of your metal surface. Cast iron, stainless steel, copper, and brass all clean up with this cleanser. Yes, it will eat your metal. Be careful. It took about one second to strip years of tarnish off of a copper colander. Shiny as a new penny. I wouldn't go past one second on copper. This stuff is hard-core on copper.
Stainless steel is where this product shines (PUN!). I sprinkle a little in the sink and give it a rub every evening. It sparkles like its brand new and water beads off the polished surface.
