Bar Keepers Friend
In 1882, an Indianapolis chemist noticed
how clean and shiny his tarnished pot was after
cooking rhubarb. Using an active ingredient
that’s found in the plant, he formulated a
talcum-smooth cleanser and sold it to the city’s
taverns. So pleased were his customers with
how well it worked on bar fixtures, the product
was dubbed the ‘Bar Keepers Friend’.
Produced in Indianapolis, USA, Bar
Keepers Friend is a market leading cleaner &
polisher in the US and many other countries
globally. The non-bleach formula is ideal for
cleaning and polishing all hard surfaces such
as copper, brass, stainless steel, fibreglass,
porcelain, glass and ceramic surfaces.
In the US the products are also a
favourite with consumers for marine cleaning
applications at a fraction of the cost of other
marine cleaning products.
