Need some help with hard to remove stains around the house?

Today I’m excited to share a helpful cleaning product that I recently discovered called The Pink Stuff. It’s an effective yet gentle cleaning paste that I highly recommend for hard-to-clean grease and grime around the house!

I have to confess though that I am always slightly skeptical at trying products that promise miracles, but this cleaner is so popular on TikTok and the online reviews are pretty amazing, so that definitely piqued my interest!

What is The Pink Stuff Miracle Cleaning Paste?

It’s a powerful all-purpose cleaning paste that is gentle on surfaces but is also tough on stains. The ideal uses for it include cleaning saucepans, ovens, barbecues, ceramic tiles, glass, rust, sinks, garden furniture, paintwork, boats, stove cooktops, copper, and much more.

You basically just grab a rag or sponge, dip it in The Pink Stuff, and start scrubbing! I found that it is quite an effective cleaner, especially compared to spray-on cleaners I am used to using.  Keep in mind you do have to put some elbow grease into it for the really baked-on stains.

using the pink stuff to clean the oven

The Pink Stuff cleaned my oven like a champ!!

I used a Scrub Daddy sponge with the cleaning paste and scrubbed out my oven easily. There were a few spots that required some harder scrubbing, but it did so well! I let it soak in for a few minutes, then scrubbed. I am super impressed!

I took the oven rack out that was brown from baked-on grease and grime, and scrubbed it too over the sink, and it now looks brand new!

The Pink Stuff’s primary ingredients are baking soda, quartz, sodium silicate, and soap, which makes sense with its ability to break down baked-on grease. It may not be great for polished surfaces as it could scratch, and also it could take the paint off of walls, so be sure to spot test on certain surfaces first before scrubbing.

There is no chemical smell to this cleaning paste, which is amazing too!

cleaning the stove top with the pink cleaner

Did you know that if you take apart your gas stove it could look like this? Ha! 

I thought I was good at keeping my stovetop clean, but I guess not! No worries though, The Pink Stuff cleaner took care of that grease in no time. I scrubbed with the sponge first and then went over it with a microfiber rag. It looks shiny and new now- yippee!

The Pink Stuff cleaner is also great for cleaning up cookware!

I tested it on a stainless pot that had some tough burn marks on the inside that wouldn’t come off with dish soap. Using just a little cleaning paste, they wiped off easily. Now it’s super shiny and new looking!

Here is another example of a cast iron enamel pot that has some baked-on stains. I just scrubbed the inside with The Pink Stuff, and it got it fairly clean quickly!

I can’t wait to try this on my baking sheet pans next!

See why the Scrub Daddy sponge is a team favorite for cleaning in the kitchen!

    I recently discovered this also. It’s amazing for hard water marks on glass shower doors. Also, it worked a miracle on my oven door. I bought the scrubbers that connect to a drill to make it so much easier to scrub.

    • Shirley Yeo

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing about Shower doors – ALWAYS looking for good solutions for that! 🙂

    • cassie

      Ooh, just ordered to try on our shower door! Now I need those scrubbers too!

  2. 5pink1blue

    So this doesn’t sell in stores? Never heard of this. Thanks for sharing.

    • Holly

      They actually used to carry it in Sears stores, but the last time I saw it there was over 20 years ago. It’s been around a long time and works awesome.

  3. NubianGoddess

    I have been looking for something like this in the U.S.!!!

  4. Deepthi

    How is this compared with Bar Keepers Friend powder?

    • Erin

      On Amazon, some people said that it seemed no better than powder cleanser. I bought a single tub for $7 on Amazon so I’m not stuck with a cabinet full if I don’t like it.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Smart ya I hope your as pleasantly surprised as me! Thanks!

    • Bethany Wheeler

      I’m curious too!

    • Trisha

      The bar keepers friend is the best!!!

    • Kim

      I love Bar Keepers Friend and Bon Ami. Bon Ami cleans stainless steel pans and they look new again. Blows me away every time!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing, Uma!

    • cooper929

      Good deal but that bundle is exempt from the $10 Amazon credit

  5. Erin

    That looks like a stainless steel stovetop. Did it scratch it?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      No it didn’t scratch.

  6. Margaux

    Looks like something my Mom used to clean her stainless steel pots and wok in the 80s. We grew up overseas and she used a pink paste called Chemico. Wondering if it’s the same? Seems like it is.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hmm unsure I did read this cleaner is from the UK so could be or similar!

      • Margaux

        Mom confirmed it’s very similar!

  7. melissa meyer

    We have such a hard time removing iron stains from hard water in our shower. Has anyone by chance tried this in their shower (tile)?

    • Margaux

      Yup, first comment said she uses it on shower doors and it works.

    • Carrie M.

      Try Scrubbing Bubbles and a heavy duty Magic Eraser or very, very fine sandpaper. Both work really well.

    • catmom

      I use warm vinegar to clean shower door glass. Works great!

    • Kim

      Cut a lemon in half and rub it all over your hard water stains in your shower. Let it sit for a bit. It works very well!

      • Deborah

        When you write use a lemon on the shower do you mean the tile or door? I have hard water stains on the tile that I’ve tried everything possible on and I still see the stains. I’ve never tried a lemon and that’s why I’m asking. Thank you in advance.

  8. Csandst1

    There was something similar to this sold on an infomercial in the late 80s and early 90s. I bought it as I bought anything that was on an infomercial 😂

    • Kim Buckingham

      It was called Quick n Bright. I used to work at the As Seen on TV store. That was one of our best sellers!

  9. Brigitte

    Would this clean brass as well?

  10. Judy

    Looks like something that was sold on QVC years ago. It did polish watermarks off but I dif not finfd that product very effective.

  11. Maggie

    I live in the UK… I looove pink stuff. It’s amazing. But I buy it for around $1 😬

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow that’s awesome lucky you! Thanks for sharing.

  12. Kim

    This looks similar to some stuff my mom bought me that I’ve had a tub of for years now. It’s called Earth Brite and it’s a miracle at getting stains out of my sink. A little goes a long way, but it doesn’t seem to damage anything I’ve scrubbed with it. It says it’s made with: clay soap flakes, green soap, mineral oil and lemon. I wonder what is in the Pink Stuff? Maybe I’ll try it if this stuff ever runs out!

  13. AngieM

    Is this good for oil and grease?

  14. Mindy

    Has anyone tried the pink stuff spray cleaners?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I want to try that also Mindy! They seem popular too.

    • Maggie

      Yes! It works very well!

  15. Kathleen

    Reminds me of the 1985 movie The Stuff 😆

  16. E

    I had a cleaning lady a few years back who got my stove to look like that. She probably used something like this as we were living overseas at the time!

  17. Lee James

    I do like Bar Keeper and Cameo Stainless cleaner. It is hard to find Cameo these days so I will give it a try! The pink Stuff.

  18. VW

    Anyone have any ideas to get really tough cooked-on gunk off of smooth glass stovetops? The stovetop cleaners I’ve tried aren’t that effective, and I’m afraid to try anything that could scratch it up…

    • Deb

      I’ve been happy with Weiman glass cook top heavy duty cleaner and polish. I usually get it at Menards. I use a dry dollar store light duty scrubbing pad with it. Polish it up with a dry paper towel afterwards. I always clean up within 24 hrs of the spill so, I usually don’t have to use too much elbow grease. No scratches.

  19. Jennifer

    Holy cow WATCH OUT The Pink Stuff on Amazon Prime had a $90 DELIVERY CHARGE!!!!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! I don’t see that charge from Amazon as I click through now.

    • sarann27

      When I click through this link it’s not showing prime option and charging me shipping as well. When I found it on the Amazon app however, it was free prime shipping. HTH!

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        How odd. I do find it to ship free with Prime as I click through now. Glad you could grab it through the app!

  20. Annie

    Thanks. Bought one. Hopefully it works good..

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I bought this and LOVE it, Annie! I have an electric cooktop (flat glass) stove and it was great – no scratches. I also used it on the bottom of well-used pans and now they look new!

  21. Ash

    Over $100 shipping!!!

    Order Summary
    Items: $10.37
    Shipping & handling: $109.99
    Total before tax: $120.36

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It looks like the original seller has run out. They have added in a new seller with terribly high shipping. I would check back in the next day to two. Once the first seller has more stock, you should not have that shipping amount.

  22. Rita

    The Amazon small business credit. Can we take advantage of that more than once? (not likely, I know)!
