Anyone ever used Bar Keepers Friend to wash their stuff? The only homebrew store in Houston is downtown, so it would be far more convenient if I could just run to the local grocery store and get some of the stuff which my mother swears is the same thing as PBW. Not that I don't trust her, but I don't think she really knows what PBW is... anyone know?

Bar Keepers Friend is more a scratchless substitute for scouring powder, not really a sanitizer though.

PBW is not really a sanitizer either. People use PBW to clean their equipement, but they still sanitize afterwards.

Thanks for the correction. I haven't used PBW and had misconception of it being a sanitizer.
