Bar Keepers Friend
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bar Keepers Friend is a powdered cleaning
product made by SerVaas Laboratories in Indianapolis, Indiana. It's been produced since 1882, and was invented by a chemist in Indianapolis, where the product continues to be manufactured. It has since become the base of a line of cleaning
products by SerVaas, who started producing and carrying the product under the Bar Keepers Friend name in the 1950s. Unlike similar abrasive cleaning products, such as Comet and Ajax, Bar Keepers Friend uses oxalic acid as its active ingredient.
In 1994, Consumer Reports found Bar Keepers Friend to be on a par with Mr. Clean for removing baked-on soil, tea stains and other pot stains, and better at removing rust. While recommending Bar Keepers Friend for a variety of household cleaning uses, author Heather Solos warns that it should not be used to clean silverware, real marble, or pewter.
The logo of Bar Keepers Friend represents the swinging doors of a saloon
. According to the President of SerVaas Laboratories, Robert Silvers, although some people complained during Prohibition, "the name was never changed. It's been Bar Keepers Friend since 1882."
