How to Clean Kitchen Sinks with BKF

September 16, 2020

Do you have a sink so badly stained that you’ve given up? It’s a “sinking” feeling. You probably think you only have two options: live with it, or invest in a new sink. Just an FYI, a newly installed kitchen sink can range anywhere from $200 to $1000. However, what if that sink is an antique or just fits the house perfectly – then what are your options? Bar Keepers Friend fans know the answer. They’re the experts on how to clean kitchen sinks.

You see, these fans had sinks that they thought were a goner until they discovered Bar Keepers Friend. Here’s what a few BKF fans had to say about their experiences with BKF in their sinks:

How to Clean Kitchen Sinks: BKF Fan Edition

Before & After Submission from Katy L.

“After, during, and before. Everyone kept raving about Bar Keepers Friend, and I’m extremely glad I decided to try it! I was thinking about getting a new sink after we fixed the iron issue, but now, I don’t need to! No scrubbing involved, just lightly rubbing it in with a washcloth.” — Katy L

Spray and Foam: It’s a Keeper!

“Yesterday afternoon, I received the full-size bottle of MORE Spray + Foam cleaner that I got to choose. I have to admit, I was skeptical because I’ve tried so many other products. I tried it on a rust stain on my old kitchen sink, and to my surprise, it REMOVED it! Next, I will be trying it on my shower doors next and can hardly wait. You don’t mind cleaning so much when the product actually works! Thank you, Bar Keepers Friend. You are a keeper!!!” —  Mary D

You Saved My Sink!

“You saved my sink! It’s chipped pretty badly, but I don’t think I have the heart to replace it. It is so pretty, I agree! Glad I was able to bring it back to life with BKF!” — Eileen M.

Wait, what about Bar Keepers Friend! 

“After days trying to remove a large stain from a stainless steel sink, using scourers, all sorts of products, etc., I was about to give up and admit that I would probably have to replace the whole sink unit (rented property.) I remembered hearing about Bar Keeper’s Friend and thought I’d give it a try, nothing to lose at that point! Well, just used it (powder), and it got rid of the entire stain in less than a minute of scrubbing with a sponge! I’m floored and very grateful I now won’t have to pay out for a new sink!” – Kelly W.

Here’s How to Clean Kitchen Sink Grime
