    I bought some BKF today and I'm amazed!!! Used it on a black scuff mark on the wall that has resisted all efforts to clean it, and it just wiped it away! I'm going round the house to find anything else to clean. I'm really impressed with this. Thanks OP

    Do not use stardrops ot White Wizard on leather. We have just been out to a severe problem to resolve for Lakeland where a consumer had used White Wizard and it had removed the top coating of her leather. (it is an abrasive and should not be used)

    I have added this to my list, I hope my local Asda stocks it.

    My local Asda did stock it and therefore I got it. I didn't try it out yet although Mum did and she was happy with it.

    Lakeland have it for £1.99... good excuse to get some more stuff from lakeland, you know, to justify the delivery! :rotfl:

    I like stardrops for bathroom cleaning, cleaning pots and squirting in the washing machine to get rid of the stains on kids clothes. It can get rid of poopy stains from vests!

    Will give the BKF a try on my horrid white/cream sink... no idea what it's made from... it's horrid anyway.

    A friend of mine gave me the Ethical Shopper Guide for Christmas and I was horrified to see that Stardrops rates really badly for a lot of ethical issues (human rights, animal research, investments etc). I don't know if other people care but I feel I need to go for something more ethically sound!
    I wonder how BKF fares? I read that it was environmentally friendly, made from rhubarb leaves, I believe.

    You should not have to buy BKF at this price. I have never had any trouble getting it at the supermarket, just bought some from Asda this week. Any larger store will have it I think.

    I've also used Barkeepers Friend for years. Can't be beat for hard to remove stains. I use it on my porcelain sink to remove those nasty grey marks that pans leave (and before that on my acrylic? white sink - brought it up a treat.)
    Likewise, if you have plates which have grey streaks from cutlery, BKF takes them off. Ceramic hobs, tarnished brass <don't use on lacquered>, copper pans, tea-stained cups, rust, the list goes on.. Apply with a toothbrush to fiddly areas.

    Can't remember if we can put links in posts, but BKF in the UK is made by Homecare and if you add on the UK ending you'll get the site! It says it's over a hundred years old <1882> and there are various cleaning tips. There's a link from it to the American site, <product + .com> where there's a nice little story about how it started and how it got its name. Ooh, they mention special uses such as golf clubs, removing tar from motorbike exhausts. Cleaning your dishwasher <remove items>, stained clothing, granite & marble worktops, felt tip pen.

    Don't use on mirror polished stainless steel houseware/cookware, gold, silver or enamel (e.g. baths).
