Bar Keepers Friend works well to keep your bicycle in pristine condition. Make a paste with the powdered cleaner and apply it to a grimy, rusted bike chain. Leave it on for 5 minutes, scrub with a brush, and rinse with water. Additionally, you can use the Soft Cleanser formula of BKF to clean your bike’s handlebars, pedals, and metal frame.
Bring your dingy car headlights back to life with powdered BKF. After wetting the lens with water, apply a light coating of the powdered cleaner to make a paste. Then, rub with a soft cloth before rinsing thoroughly with water. Similarly, car wheels become grimy as they pick up oil, salt, mud, and dust. Clean the wheels with BKF MORE Spray + Foam. After spraying it on the wheel, you can scrub the surface with an old toothbrush, nylon brush, or soft cloth. Then, rinse with water.
When you’re using BKF to clean bikes and automobiles, keep in mind that it’s not recommended for all surfaces. Don’t use it to clean painted, powder-coated, and chrome-plated surfaces. However, you can use the soft cleanser formula in small amounts to buff out scratches on your car’s exterior. Similar to a polishing compound, you should rub it on with a soft, dry cloth and wipe it off immediately. For plastic hubcaps, it’s best to use only the MORE Spray + Foam version of BKF and to test it in a small area before general application.
