Are Barkeeper's Friend and Bon Ami the same thing?

They're different brands of household cleaner that essentially do the same thing -- though Bon Ami seems to be gentler.
Kristy is an expert at making things pretty and a former Associate Editor of Food52.
Bon Ami uses natural ingredients like baking soda and limestone. Read about it here: http://www.bonami.com/index...
The main ingredient in Bar Keeper's Friend is oxalic acid. It's definitely stronger.
Barkeeper's Friend smells worse, but seems to work slightly faster. I always wear gloves when using it because it makes my skin itch something fierce.
Bon Ami takes a little more elbow grease and comes in a way cuter can. Also costs less (about $2 less).
