The Pink Stuff is made by Stardrops for Starbrands Ltd.

    4. Rinse your cleaning cloth or sponge and use it to remove the paste. 
    5. Rinse any remaining residue off with clean water.

Get rid of mould, rust, and grime from outdoor furniture by giving it a clean with The Pink Stuff. The Pink Stuff is best suited to cleaning metal furniture, not plastic.

1. How to clean your hob

Writing your name in the paste is a compulsory step!

No matter what type of hob you have, use The Pink Stuff to remove burnt on food, discoloration, rust, and staining. 

TOP TIP: If some food residue remains, use a hob scraper to remove it. 

2. Cleaning inside the oven

Remove the oven racks and coat with The Pink Stuff. Rub some more around the inside of your oven and leave for 10 minutes. You might need to scrub at the oven and racks to remove any burnt on food and grease, but it'll be a lot easier than using any other product. 

TOP TIP: Scrunch up a ball of tin foil and use it in place of a sponge or cloth to scrape the inside of the oven. 

3. Oven glass

      Hi there, Judith! We don't sell The Pink Stuff, but you could certainly order it for home delivery through online retailers such as Amazon. Be warned, it is much cheaper to buy it in shops than through online retailers. They have hiked up the prices since it has become so popular!

    Do you have any tips on cleaning lined lampshades that are looking more yellow than the original cream colour they were

    1. Author Joanne A on January 25, 2019 at 9:27 am

      Hi Sharon! What material is the lampshade made from? If it is synthetic or cotton fabric you can clean it in the bath. Fill the bath up, add a small amount of either laundry detergent, baby shampoo or dishwashing liquid, and then gently clean the lampshade off. You can leave it to soak and then clean off the suds and air dry.

    Bought this for 69p in Pound Stretcher, also on sale on Amazon £6+!! Used to clean our fireplace, surround and hearth came up a treat, bit of effort required but nothing I've tried works better. Also used on glass hob and oven doors, brilliant.
