I’ve kept The Pink Stuff as part of my regular cleaning rotation for a while now, and it’s become one of my go-to products for more kitchen chores than I could have anticipated. If you’re not familiar, The Pink Stuff is a popular British cleaning paste that’s safe (and effective!) to use on just about everything, including pots and pans, stainless steel appliances, and even the oven!

I legitimately love this stuff, so when I learned the brand had released a new kit — The Pink Stuff Miracle Scrubber Kit — I couldn’t wait to try it out. Especially on my backsplash grout. Allow me to explain.

The kit, which apparently sells out regularly (if it’s sold out right now, keep checking or try eBay!), comes with two generously sized tubs of The Pink Stuff, plus a battery-operated electric brush base and four attachable brush heads: a soft, medium, large, and pointy one. The idea is that you used the brushes in tandem with the paste to work away the toughest marks in your kitchen. I like to think of it as an electric toothbrush for my dirtiest kitchen surfaces. Sure, a regular brush works fine, but the extra battery-operated power helps (and makes the job less tiresome).

The brushes are great for detail work, such as cleaning grout.

I figured the Miracle Scrubber Kit would be well-suited to tackle the grout lines behind my sink and espresso machine, which tend to turn brown faster than other parts of my kitchen. I followed the package instructions to apply the paste directly on the dirty lines, then used the medium-sized brush head to work it all away. Well, I’m happy to report it was so much faster, easier, and more fun than using my usual microfiber cloth (which, in this context, would probably spread around the paste and make a mess). And the battery power made the brush more effective than a toothbrush would have been. Afterward, I wiped away the excess paste with a wet cloth, and it was so, so easy to do. (You can see the impressive results for yourself.)

Of course, the whole point of the kit is its versatility, so I wanted to try out the rest of the brushes on other spots in my kitchen. I had noticed the inside of my dishwasher needed some love, so I used the paste and the large brush to remove limescale. A washcloth would have been fine, but the brush and Pink Stuff combo left the stainless surface with an extra shine.

Limescale in the dishwasher is so easy to remove with the Pink Stuff.

The cone-shaped brush would be great for reaching inside tight areas (like in your dishwasher’s rubber seal, to remove all that gross built-up grime). I’ll also probably try the medium brush on my shower heads and faucets.

All in all, I’m absolutely not surprised by how much I love this kit, given it combines one of my favorite all-purpose cleaning products with one of the most practical household tools out there. No more old toothbrushes for me!
