Barkeepers friend as glass cleaner. Which version?

Barkeepers friend is often mentioned to clean windows.

Just wondered which version people use?
Spray, cream or powder

Do you mean Bar Keepers ?

If so, the powder version so you can make it as strong as you require...

As said, powder version is the one you need.

I've just used the powder on all my glass, wetted down with some Gyeon glass cleaner, then added two coats of Angelwax H2go and it is frikkin epic. Even a small amount of water beads off it!!

Mix it with a little water first into a paste

I take it this is done as a paste and then used in conjunction with the 0000 wire wool?

Then a quick wipe over with IPA then put on a glass sealant/rain-x or the like?

Can grab some from my local B&Q at Stanley Green as it shows as being in stock!
