We're going to be honest here; we’ve really taken a shine to cleaning these days. After seeing all the hype surrounding The Pink Stuff on TikTok, a cotton candy-colored putty that removes stubborn stains and grime like magic, we knew we had to give it a try.

On the latest episode of Take My Money, PureWow creator Pascale tested the viral product on three different surfaces, including a burnt pan, old running sneakers and a greasy stove.

The Pink Stuff is “a tough cleaning paste that is gentle on surfaces but tough on stains.” Plus, there are no harsh chemicals in the formula, which consists of all-natural ingredients, like baking soda, sodium silicate, quartz and soap. But don’t be fooled by the chemical-free façade because it works extremely well. (Exhibit A: Pascale’s review.)

PureWow’s Audience Development Strategist, Ali Brown, agreed with Pascale’s product rating, saying, “One of my initial thoughts was that it smelled much more pleasant than other cleaners. And it immediately got a mark out of my pan that I had been trying to get rid of for weeks.”

While it won't transform your cleaning experience into a trip to Disney World, Brown found that cleaning with The Pink Stuff made the chore as easy and as close to fun as housework is ever going to get.
