Here is a tip. I use it on my ceramic tile in the entire bathroom. The tip is to use a green scrubby pad and lightly wet it. Put the BKF on the pad and put it all over the tile. It will be slightly sudsy. Leave it on and let it dry till it looks like chalk all over your tile. Take a dry terrycloth towel and wipe it off. Your tile will look like a mirror!
Its funny how through creative marketing products that actually work like this one get lost. People end up buying less effective products because they smell nice. Then the younger generations get a hold of products like BKF and think its the greatest thing since sliced bred, only to find out that our grandparents have been using it for decades.
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.
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!!!

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!!!
