Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is Bar Keepers Friend Cleaner & Polish in a four pack but you can also get it in a single pack or even in a six pack. The four pack is a much better deal then the single can though.
The six price is the best price per ounce but six of these is a LOT of it. So I think most people will do best with the four pack at $12.92 or only $3.23 a can.
I first discovered how great this stuff was when a listener called in about it. We actually had some that a house sitter had brought with her during one of our vacations. So I gave the test of tests at our place, washing a simple glass.
You see our water is hard, really hard, washing a glass makes it get hazy, the more you wash it the worse it gets. We tried everything, washing glasses on hot water, using vinegar or special rinse enhancers in the dish washer.
Hell I even got desperate enough to try grain alcohol. Nothing worked!
It got so bad I refused to buy new glassware, prompting a buddy to declare that I was, “Too cheap to own a decent martini glass”. The nerve of some people!
Anyway I got one of my worst high ball glasses out and gave it a quick scrub and it looked good but I was skeptical, they always look good wet, they haze over as they dry. But after drying the glass it was still crystal clear.
Since I have tried it on faucets, stained sink drains, etc. and it works wonderfully for all of them. Check out this video of one of our hazy glasses being restored right here.
In any event consider adding this stuff to your homestead. I can see why they call it “Barkeeper’s Friend” but I really see it as home owners friend. It doesn’t do everything but it does somethings better than anything else. So consider picking up a six pack, four pack or at least a single can today. If you give this stuff a try it will earn a full time place in your cleaning supplies.
