The internet has a new cleaning obsession and it comes in a tiny pink tub.
Made popular by British cleaning goddess Mrs Hinch, The Pink Stuff, which is on sale on Amazon Prime Day for just $2.97 is a hot pink paste that cleans just about anything off just about any surface, according to its legions of loyal fans.
Ovens, stovetops, showers, sinks, crayon-stained walls, sneakers, tiles, pots and pans; you name it, this stuff can clean it quickly and easily.
TikTok is filled with videos of it in action, with the #thepinkstuff hashtag clocking up over 90 million views, and at just $2.97 a pop, it’s easy to see why it’s always selling out.
“I love this stuff, it works so well,” one person said about The Pink Stuff in a review on Amazon, “I have matte finish walls and I got nail polish, permanent marker, stamp ink and so much more off my walls. Everything else striped the paint except this.”
“Oh my gosh—this stuff is a life-changer!" another person wrote, "Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean.”
“Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near-new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff."
Someone else said they were skeptical after seeing it on social media but loved how it cleaned their children’s drawings off their walls, while another person raved about using it on an old Harley Davidson muffler and said, “it took the electrolysis, corrosion and rust off with no effort whatsoever”.
US Yahoo Lifestyle writer Izabella Zaydenberg, quickly became obsessed after testing it out at home.
“I'm a cat owner - which means I have to embrace the reality that weird splotches and stains will appear everywhere in my home,” she says.
“After trying everything, from magic erasers to scrubbers to stain removers that remove everything but the actual stain, I had all but given up. That is, until TikTok oh-so conveniently led me to stumble upon this cleaning solution that promised to help.”
She was impressed with the non-chemical smell of the product, and the size of it as it seems small in the photo but a tub actually weighs 500g.
“It takes minimal elbow grease — in just a few minutes, the cat food residue on my walls was gone for good,” she says, “It took a little more time to handle the scratches and paw print stains, but they're gone now too.”
Where to buy The Pink Stuff in Australia
After finding popularity in the UK and US, The Pink Stuff has just arrived on Australian shores and is available on a number of sites for varying prices.
Amazon Australia are currently stocking it for $2.97 on Amazon Prime Day, however you might need to be quick as Amazon regularly sells out of it in overseas markets.
CleanHQ have just launched an AU page and are selling a 500g tub for $6.95, or they do a seven-pack power bundle that includes The Pink Stuff's laundry and bathroom cleaners along with the original tub for $59.95, with Yahoo Lifestyle readers getting $10 off with the discount code 'YAHOOVIP'.
And ebay AU has a 500g tub of The Pink Stuff for $8.90 with free shipping.

Other cheap cleaning hacks
We love getting the scoop on a great cleaning product or hack, particularly if it's one that doesn't break the bank. Here are a few we've seen recently that are worth sharing:
Dishwashing tablets can work wonders on calcium build ups on shower screens. One woman who has very hard water in her area said she used a Shine Dishwater Tablets from Woolworths - which retail for $4.50 for a 30 pack - to scrub away at her shower screen with great results.
