What is it?
The Pink Stuff Miracle Paste All Purpose Cleaner is just one product from a line of Pink Stuff cleaning products by Stardrops, a U.K.-based company. The Miracle Paste is made from a vegetable oil-based formula that includes ingredients like quartz, baking soda, sodium silicate and soap that help the paste cut through tough stains and grease.
People have been using the Miracle Paste on everything from cookware and sneakers to floors and shower tiles. The endless possibilities for cleaning involve simply mixing the paste together (it can separate over time) and apply a blob of paste onto whatever needs a thorough clean. People have used either a damp sponge or microfibre cloth to gentle distribute the product in a circular motion before letting sit for a few minutes before wiping or rinsing clean.
What people are saying
The Pink Stuff Miracle Paste has become an instant hit among Amazon shoppers, racking up a 4.4-star rating from hundreds of customer reviews.
One reviewer called it "a very effective cleaner" that worked well on a wade variety of surfaces, including an enamel bath, shower tiles, chrome fixtures, and even a microwave — leaving them all "sparkling."
Another reviewer wrote that after "30 seconds with this product," stains on their bathroom floor saw a huge improvement.
One shopper noted that while this cleaning paste "actually works really well," they warned that it is an "abrasive type cleaner" that can take "a good amount of time" to clean baked-on messes in dishes or stovetops.
Although the product does help remove tough stains, it does have a grittiness to it — which means it might not be the best product to use on glass cooktops as it could leave small scratches.
If you're looking for a way to tackle tough stains or bring your cookware back to life, the Pink Stuff Miracle Paste might be for you. It does take a little elbow grease but the results and reviews speak for themselves and have earned the product a cult-following.
