Outdoors Cleaning

Cleaning the outdoors can be a daunting task, especially if there are tough stains and grime that won’t budge. Fortunately, Bar Keepers Friend (BKF) can help you tackle even the toughest outdoor cleaning jobs. BKF is a powerful and versatile cleaning product that can clean a variety of outdoor surfaces, including metal, stone, and tile. Here’s how to use BKF to clean your outdoor spaces:

Safety First

Before you start cleaning, it’s essential to wear gloves and protective eyewear to protect your skin and eyes from any splatters or spills that may occur.

Identify the Surface

BKF can clean various outdoor surfaces, but it’s crucial to identify the surface you’re cleaning to determine the amount of cleaning solution you need. For example, a small amount of BKF can clean a stainless-steel grill, while you may need more BKF to clean an entire patio floor.

Wet the Surface

Wet the surface you want to clean with water. This step will help to remove any loose dirt or debris, making it easier for BKF to remove tough stains and grime.

Apply BKF

Sprinkle or apply BKF onto the wet surface, making sure to cover the entire area you want to clean. Use a scrub brush or sponge to rub the BKF into the surface gently. Be sure to follow the directions on the package for the appropriate amount of BKF to use.

Rinse and Dry

After scrubbing the surface with BKF, rinse it thoroughly with water to remove any remaining product. Then, dry the surface with a clean towel or cloth.


  1. For stubborn stains, apply BKF and let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing.
  2. To clean grout, make a paste of BKF and water, apply it to the grout, and let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing.
  3. Always test BKF on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn’t damage the surface.

In conclusion, BKF is an effective and versatile cleaning product that can help you tackle tough outdoor cleaning jobs. Follow these steps to clean your outdoor spaces effectively, but remember to always prioritize safety and test the product on a small area before use.
