How are we different?

In a nutshell, we are formulated quite differently from other cleansers…there’s good reasons many end-users pass by the lower-priced options to select BKF products.


We are acidic (oxalic acid – occurs naturally in spinach, rhubarb, etc.) vs. alkaline, which means, unlike others, we’re also effective on rust, tarnish, oxidation, mineral scale, hard water & lime deposits, etc., PLUS all the other soil removal abilities you’d expect in a cleanser.


We also believe we use the best “abrasives” (no filler) for easier, time-saving cleaning without scratching.


Because we contain no bleach, stainless steel mfrs. love & recommend us! End-users are users for l
