I Have Found My Miracle Shower Cleaner!!!

Thank you all for giving such GREAT advice and suggestions on helping me find my miracle cleaner.

I actually tried several of your suggestions and a couple of them worked....but for my stubborn shower, I was still needing that miracle cleaner. So, I made a trip to the store and just started staring and studying all the products on the cleaning aisle that I had never purchased before. To be quite honest, I thought that I had actually purchased everything that was already out there!

However, I came across a product that I'd never heard of or seen before. It's called Bar Keeper's Friend! Yep! Apparently, this product has been out since 1882. WHAT???? I know, right? Ooops! I just sounded like my teenager. lol!

Anyhow, this stuff is absolutely amazing, friends! I was thinking that it would probably work okay for the most part, but it probably wouldn't be "my miracle cleaner", ya know? I was so wrong!





I sure wish that I would have tried this wayyyyyyyyyyyyy before now!

Bar Keeper's Friend claims that it can remove rust, clean and polish items that are stainless steel, fiberglass, porcelain, glass cook tops, copper, tile, and brass.
Here's the directions from the back of the can: Sprinkle BKF on a thoroughly wet cloth and rub gently. If applying BFK directly to metal, porcelain or plastic, make certain surface is wet-then rub gently until rust or discoloration disappears. Rinse. For difficult stains, rust spots, tarnished surfaces.. make a paste by adding a few drops of water to BFK. Let paste remain on stain no longer than one minute before rubbing. Rinse immediately.

I am telling you that this product left my shower floor spotless. I am AMAZED!!!

Another thing that I tried was a different cleaning brush. It's big, with stiff bristles, which worked great, too. The brush was able to get into the grooves in the "pebbled" surface of the shower floor.

So, for all of you who need a miracle cleaning job done in your shower, too, run out and get a can of this stuff!!! You won't be disappointed. I purchased mine at our local Wal-Mart store.

I hope that you are having a great weekend so far! I am! Praise the Lord!!!!

I love this product! I use it on my white kitchen sink that doesn't stay white very long. A housekeeper told me about it!

I think they are basically the same thing with different names. isn't it awesome?? i'm so glad you tried it and it worked for you! and it's cheap!!!! It's awesome on the tub. my tub is sparkly clean everytime i use it. thanks for the prayers and well wishes! i'm going crazy being sick!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Thanks, Daphine, this is good to know. I might go get some tonight. I noticed the floor of my shower looking a little dingy. So glad you found this. Bon Ami might work, too. It's similar and is not supposed to scratch porcelain.

Love to you and hope you are having a good weekend. Think of you often...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Jennifer said...

ok, gonna try this stuff! Thanks for sharing :)

Stacey said...

Hi girl! I wrote about BKF awhile back. :) My parents have always used it. It will take the pan marks out of your sink if you have a white sink. That's my favorite use for it. Never have tried it in the shower though. I will now!

I am rushing out to get this stuff tomorrow...Thanks!

You know I've seen this at WM and other stores before but never bothered to pick up the can to read it *smiles* Next time I'm purchasing cleansers I'll definitely give it a try, thanks for the heads up on it *smiles*

Would you believe I've finally gotten around to adding you to my blog roll? I'm so sorry for taking so long to do it! Forgive me!

Michele said...

Oh yeah, I have used this stuff and it does work extremely well. My only suggestion is to use gloves because it tore up my hands one time. Thanks for reminding me about it though! God Bless!

Brandi said...

I am going to go buy that!! I have never heard of it either - but am willing to try anything. I also have that pebbled bottom that never gets really clean. Thanks for the advice!

A clean shower always makes me happy, but, oh how I hate cleaning it!

April said...

You know, I have some Bar Keeper's under my kitchen cabinet and I completely forgot about it!!! You say it works well in the shower??? I'm going to have to give that a try. Like you, I have yet to find any cleaner that I really like. I'm off to make my shower spotless...toodles! :)

Katie said...

Thanks so much I hate my shower doors... I will try this for sure...

Cortney said...

Glad you found something that works!

Tess Jones said...

Wow, I am so glad I came back to your blog. I have been looking for something to clean our showers with. I always heart things that clean up things very well.

Edie said...

off topic - Hey Daphine! The goulash recipe will post tomorrow. Blessings!!

Kristin said...

Hey Daphine! Thank you so much for praying for Anistyn!

I live in Baytown, TX. It's about 35 miles East of Houston, on I-10, going toward Louisiana.

Sunday, when I was at Walmart, I picked up some of the cleaner you recommended! I haven't had a chance to try it yet though! LOL

Robin @ My Blessed Nest said...

Thanks for the info, Daphine...I'll have to try it! Hope all is well with you...have a blessed Wednesday!

I'll be going to Wally World to see if we have it here!!!

Tarah said...

I am going to try this! :)

I have not found anything that is fab... so worth a try.

Michelle said...

Hi Daphine!

I have never heard of this before. I am definitely going to have to look at it here at the Walmart by me! It's funny how sometimes a product that is really an off brand or not in your face kinda brand is the one that usually works best. Lol!

Caroline said...

Hi Daphine,

That looks like a miraculous cleaner, wonder whether I can get something like that here in Holland.
Love your blog and love the picture of you and your girls at the top.
Thanks for stopping by on my blog.

Have fun,

Caroline

Lorrie said...

I've been on that for years. It is the BEST. I bought it one day and won't part with it for anything. Blessings.

Christy said...

I only use Melaluca cleaning products, they're non toxic. I try to keep my family away from as many noncancerous products as possible. Nothing I've ever bought cleans like Melaluca and I don't have to worry about if my little one would get into anything....just flush her system with water.
