12 Surprising Surfaces You Can Clean With The Pink Stuff

Have you heard of the latest household cleaner that has gone viral on TikTok? It’s called The Pink Stuff, and it’s become popular for good reason. It will literally clean almost anything! From rust to soap scum, it’s a multi-purpose cleaner you’re going to want to use.

The Pink Stuff is made of 99% natural ingredients and is non-toxic. What makes it so great? It contains soap for washing and cleaning, quartz that is abrasive to tackle stubborn stains and sodium silicate. It has dye to make it the pink color you see and fragrance for a fresh, clean smell. Although the paste formula has gone viral, the company has many other household cleaners for windows, carpets, laundry, and more on its website.

Are you ready to give it a try? Here are 15 things you can clean with The Pink Stuff to get you started. Because it is slightly abrasive, test a small spot on surfaces before using it to ensure it won’t cause any damage.

1. Tennis Shoe Soles

White soles on shoes get dirty quickly, no matter how careful you are. Instead of throwing them in the washing machine, grab The Pink Stuff and have them clean in no time. Apply the paste to the soles of your shoes, allow them to sit for 5-10 minutes, then scrub them clean and rinse them with water. Your shoes will look brand new.

2. Remove Soap Scum From Shower Doors

Soap scum is the worst on shower doors. You could spend hours scrubbing and try multiple different cleaners to get the job done, or you can use The Pink Stuff. Apply the paste to the shower doors and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Scrub in a circular motion with a non-abrasive sponge, then rinse clean with water. Follow up after showering afterward by using a squeegee to remove water to prevent heavy build-up in the future.

3. Clean Rust From a Stainless Steel Sink

Leaving a metal utensil or pot in a stainless steel sink will leave a rust mark. Sometimes dish soap will remove it, sometimes it won’t. For those stubborn rust stains, grab The Pink Stuff and apply it directly to the rust, scrub in a circular motion using a non-abrasive sponge, then rinse clean. The rust spot will be gone, and the sink will look brand new!

4. Oven

The Pink Stuff is the perfect cleaning agent for grease and debris inside an oven. Unlike aerosol oven cleaners, the paste or cream cleaner does not produce fumes. Scoop out the paste with a non-abrasive sponge or squeeze the cream cleaner onto the oven’s surface, then clean in a circular motion to remove grease and stains. Wipe up the cleaner with paper towels or a rag, then rinse with water until all the cleaner is removed. See more tips for cleaning your oven here.

5. Glass Stove Tops

Glass stove tops are great to have. Unlike the old coil burner-top versions, they are sleek and modern-looking in a kitchen. You may not have drip pans to clean anymore, but they come with their cleaning problems. Even boiled-over water will leave marks that are hard to get rid of. You could spend money on cooktop cleaners, but why not use a cleaner for multiple purposes? The Pink Stuff is great on glass cooktops. Apply the paste or cream cleaner to your cooktop, allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes, then wipe off with a paper towel or cloth. Rinse clean with water, and your glass stove top will look as good as new. See more tips for cleaning a glass stove top here.

6. Scorch Marks on the Bottom of Cookware

Scorch marks on the bottom of your cookware are inevitable, but you don’t have to live with them forever. Apply the pink stuff and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Use a scrub sponge to scrub away those scorch marks. It may take a little elbow grease to get rid of all of them, but your pots and pans will look new when you’re done.

7. Remove Scuff Marks on Baseboards

Scuff marks on baseboards just happen. We don’t know why. You unknowingly scrape your shoe along them, furniture rubs against them, or a toy gets dragged down them. However, it happens, and you want to be able to remove them without having to drag out that gallon of paint for a touch-up. Apply The Pink Stuff to a damp cloth and scrub until they are gone. Be careful of the paint finish. Too much pressure will remove the paint, and you’ll still have to do a touch-up.

8. Metal Outdoor Furniture

Being out in the rain and other weather conditions will cause your metal furniture to rust over time. There’s no need to replace it. Grab The Pink Stuff and get that rust off in no time. Apply the paste or cream cleaner and allow it to sit for up to 30 minutes, depending on the level of rust. Scrub with a scrub sponge, then rinse it with water. Dry thoroughly, then apply a clear protective coat to guard against any future problems.

9. Cleaning Grout

The Pink Stuff is great for cleaning grout! Apply the cream cleaner to a scrub sponge, wipe onto the grout, and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Come back with the scrub sponge and easily scrub away the dirt. Rinse with water, and your grout will look fresh and clean.

10. Steel Wheels

The wheels on your car will get a build-up of brake dust and grease that won’t easily come off with a normal car wash. Apply The Pink Stuff, allow to sit for 15-20 minutes, scrub with a non-abrasive sponge, and then rinse with water. Dry the wheels thoroughly to make them shine. Th

11. Windows and Doors Made With Upvc

uPVC is a low-maintenance building material used in place of painted wood. You’ll typically see it used for window frames and molding on doors. They are considered low-maintenance because they won’t rot or warp like wood can. But they attract the dirt, and after a while, a quick wipe-down won’t do the job. Put some of The Pink Stuff on a damp rag and gently scrub in a circular motion to remove the dirt. Wipe down with water, then dry.

12. Stained Plastic Cutting Boards

Plastic cutting boards get stained easily. Cutting on them causes them to become porous, and coloring from food such as tomatoes and red onions makes them look gross. The Pink Stuff will remove those stains. Scoop out some of the paste, scrub your cutting board with a scrub sponge, then rinse completely. Follow that up by washing with dish soap to remove any residue left behind.
