OK, maybe you have heard of it, since the company has been around since 1882, but if you're not using this stuff on everything from your tub and toilet to your pots and pans, you are not even close to living your best and shiniest life.

Bar Keepers Friend has more than 1,500 five-star reviews on Amazon, and people have successfully used it to clean copper, brass, stainless steel, porcelain, glass... the list goes on and on. Speaking of cleansing, your soul needs to see these before-and after shots.

"I have been looking for a cleaner to clean my kids' tub. I have used bleach and Comet and Mr. Clean and Fabuloso. NOTHING HELPED! I wet my tub, sprinkled on Bar Keepers Friend, and two minutes later I wiped away months of hard water stains, along with grease and dirt from a hard day of play.

Look, I have been trying to get this tub clean for months, and last night it was done. I am amazed!!! IF THE PICS DON'T SELL YA, I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL!!!" —Mrs Roosevelt

I honestly might go back to church after witnessing how a mere POWDER transformed this stainless-steel skillet.

"I used this to clean tough stains on two Cuisinart 722-20 Chef's Classic Stainless 8-Inch Open Skillets and it worked incredibly well. The stains have been there for months, and Bar Keepers Friend removed them in about five minutes of scrubbing. I had to scrub vigorously, but I just used a standard sponge. The pans look brand new!" —Stephen Siegel

All you have to do is sprinkle some Bar Keepers Friend onto the surface, add a lil' water, and use a sponge, cloth, or pad to scrub it. Is that the Virgin Mary I see in the reflection of this sparkly sink??

"I have an antique porcelain sink in my kitchen and this really revived it!" —Jennifer D Booth

Take it from Amazon user Pumpkin's Momma, a professional house cleaner who has the receipts showing that this stuff will remove those water stains on your toilet.

"I'm posting before-and-after photos of a job I did, as I am a house cleaner by trade. I can attest to how well it takes care of hard water stains and soap scum not only in my clients' homes, but also in my own. In the past I've tried vinegar, baking soda, Clorox, 409, hydrogen peroxide, degreaser, Magic Erasers—everything short of some kind of grenade!

I used a microfiber cloth, Bar Keepers Friend, and some water. Easy. Grime just melts away with little effort. Brown mineral deposit ring on toilet? Embarrassing! Scotch scrub pad and Bar Keepers Friend, and you got yourself a new potty!" —Pumpkin's Momma
