Bar Keepers Friend Review and Competition

Youngest is only at school for two short hours, so I do not have long to clean before he is home again with his long list of demands (I want to have a snack, then make a magic potion, then do some painting etc etc!).  So I need cleaning products that are easy to use and effective, so I can quickly whiz around in time.

It can be hard finding something that is tough enough; in a house full of boys they seem to attract mud and dirt!  So I was pleased to have the opportunity to try out Bar Keepers Friend, so far it’s proving up to the task of cleaning thoroughly.  The Power Cream is really good, it is shifting some stains that I thought were settled in and set to stay forever!!!

Surfaces are looking whiter than ever before… I am quite happy now if someone unexpectedly turns up and needs to use our facilities.  Think shades of Hollywood white teeth that is how my bath and toilet are looking!!!  I did not need too much elbow grease to accompany the products I just left it to for a minute to work its magic and then wiped off.

Bar Keepers Friend was first launched in the US way back in 1882, so it’s an established and trusted brand.  They consider themselves the cleaning product of choice for those specialist jobs and if you have items that need a little extra attention, such as tarnished pans.  I thought you only had brand new pans and tarnished pans (mine always end up looking awful!), so its good now I might actually shift the marks off them!

You can find more information on the products on the website and ordering facility will follow shortly.


You lucky followers have a chance to win £50 worth of these fabulous products, as seen in the picture.  

Sadly you do not get the hamper itself but seriously it’s the products you should be yearning for, once you have seen them in action you will find it hard to go back!  The competition closes on the 1st of May.
