Bon Ami Powder Cleanser
Bon Ami is one of our favorite items when cleaning in the kitchen and the bathroom. It is safe due to the non-toxic formula the company created in 1886. Yes, the company is over 100 years old! There is a reason they lasted this long and it is because the product works wonders.
What is Bon Ami? Bon Ami is a powder cleanser formulated from mild mineral abrasives that allow you to gently clean and polish everyday surfaces. When you think Bon Ami think all purpose cleaner.
Where to Use Bon Ami
The product has so many uses from kitchens to bathrooms, but our absolute favorite place to use Bon Ami is on showers and bathtubs. Anytime there are black stains on the shower floor we sprinkle some of this powder cleanser over the top. Then we spray another liquid cleaner over the powder and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. After the 10-15 minutes has passed we come back and scrub it out the stain.
A product comparison to Bon Ami is baking soda or Comet. The reason we find Bon Ami to be a superior to others is because it is non-toxic. You can have peace of mind knowing you, your children and pets are safe while also deep cleaning with this powder.
