Warning from TikToker that claims Ms Hinch’s popular cleaning product is scratching her car

A US woman who relied on a product popular with cleaning influencer Ms Hinch said she was dismayed when it made a particular problem worse.

The Pink Stuff has caused a stir because it removes very stubborn stains, dirt, grease and grime, leaving surfaces sparkling clean without having to spend hours scrubbing – all using 99% natural ingredients.

Fans of the brand claim the product works wonders, leaving surfaces sparkling clean without hours of scrubbing – all using 99 percent natural ingredients.

The paste can be used on most surfaces in all areas of the home including tile, glass, paintwork, patio furniture, hobs, ovens, pots and pans, door handles, sinks, bathtubs, showers, grills and even trainers.

However, in a TikTok Video Captioned “Don’t use The Pink Stuff on your car to get rid of scrap or anything,” Liya (@liya.leelee) revealed that the popular product not only failed to remove the scratches, but also left additional blemishes on her vehicle .

Ms. Hinch fans often pass on their own recommendations, and Liya came up with the idea of ​​using The Pink Stuff on her car after seeing a video of someone praising the product for that very use.

The product is very easy to use: just apply a layer of the pink paste to stubborn stains for a few minutes, then wipe gently with a dry cloth.

The sold-out product was so popular on social media that the hashtag “thepinkstuff” was used more than 90 million times on TikTok.

Liya absolutely loved the video and quickly followed suit, spreading the product “onto everything” in circular motions.

“Monkey see, monkey do,” she said while lathering up The Pink Stuff with a macrofiber towel.

But while it initially seemed like the product “actually worked” and the car looked “shiny” and “gorgeous,” Liya explained that the next morning she discovered brand new stains following her circular cleaning motions.

As someone who relies on the product for a variety of household chores, she was speechless by what happened.

That’s not to say she received a lot of sympathy in the comments section below her post, though.

One person was harsh, asking, “Why would anyone think an abrasive cleaner would remove scratches?”






Comments on Liya's TikTok post varied, with some people shaming her for using the product in her car in the first place

While another pointed out, “It’s basically like liquid sandpaper.”

However, others shared their pain, with one person admitting, “Same girl!” It left ugly stains on my car that I couldn’t get rid of.

Others took the opportunity to offer their own tried and tested tips for removing car scuffs and scratches.

One wrote: “Toothpaste does a great job of removing scratches.”

Another said: “Use acetone it comes off so easily!!”

Although Pink Stuff’s website states that the product can be used on “pans, stovetops, sinks, PVC, grills, ceramic tile, glass, showers, patio furniture, paintwork, boats, brass and rust,” there is no mention of cars .

Thousands swear by the product for removing stubborn stains, burnt-in stains and even rusty items like doorknobs, knockers and handles, towel rails, toasters, kettles, sinks and trash cans.

Shoppers also use the paste on the wheels and frames of old bicycles or scooters to bring the part back to life, while the product does a good job of removing rust from outdoor metal chairs and tables, leaving them sparkling like new.
