Comet, Ajax, Zud … these products have been around for a while. Soft Scrub appeared much later. But Bar Keepers Friend has been around since 1882! It was invented by a chemist here in Indianapolis and has been going strong ever since.
I encounter some very nasty cleaning challenges in my rental properties, and I found this product was superior to all the other similar cleansers on the market. I buy two or three containers at a time so my tool caddy will never be without it.
You can’t use it with a paper towel or wash cloth . . . you need to use one of those dark green scrubbers . . . I think they’re made by Scotch Brite. For tub and shower floors, I use a scrub brush with this product. But it does the work. It removes hard water stains, soap scum and rust stains as well. Sometimes I combine it with Krud Kutter, another one of my favorite cleaning products, which comes in a spray bottle.
Here’s the bottom line: when you own rental properties and do a lot of your own work, you want to accomplish things quickly. So, I’ve done a lot of research and tried many products through the years. Most of the products I use at my rentals can be found in my own house as well.
This blog is about sharing my wisdom with other investors, and I hope to save my readers time and money! And Bar Keepers Friend is a little known product that can do just that . . .
Onward and upward! 🙂
