Here are three Scrub Daddy cult cleaning products to help you turn your chores into a happy satisfying experience. Match them with one of Britain’s most popular cleaning products called The Pink Stuff.

Scrub Daddy

Scrub Daddy was the original smiling sponge. The scrubber is soft in warm water and firm in cool water. Did you know the smiling mouth can be used to clean both sides of cutlery in one stroke? The eyes are ideal for placing your fingers in for a stronger grip. This is ideal for when you are trying to clean the bottom of cups.

Scrub Mommy

Scrub Mommy is a double-sided scrubber and sponge. This is made with FlexTexture on one side and a suds-generating ResoFoam sponge on the other.

Her FlexTexture® Side becomes firm in cold water to deliver added scrubbing power, while in warm water it softens, better suited for light cleaning jobs. While Her ResoFoam® Side is six times more absorbent than the leading brand, producing 60% more soap suds, in addition to being odour and stain-resistant.

I like to use scrub mommy to clean the bathtub. The sponge side is well paired with The Pink Stuff cleaning paste. While the scrubber is good to add a bit little bit of elbow grease to the tougher marks.

Eraser Daddy

The Eraser Daddy is a tough magic eraser. He’s designed to last ten times longer than the other ones on the market. You can use the eraser daddy with a dip in water and no sprays. Try cleaning the eraser daddy with crayon, felt-tips and pencil marks, around the kitchen and bathroom. He even works outdoors and on scuff marks on sneakers.

The CEO and inventor, Aaron Krause says “Our FlexTexture material is firm in cold water for scrubbing without scratching, then softer in warm water for sponging, both without the need for extra cleaning chemicals, and all while remaining odourless. Not only can he replace all your other sponges and most of your sprays, but he lasts much longer and can even be deep cleaned in the dishwasher or microwave”

Miracle Cleaning Paste: The Pink Stuff

The Pink Stuff is a pale pink paste that is super-tough on stains. It’s a tad gritty to allow you to remove dirt, grease and grime. You can use the paste for cleaning tiles, glass, paintwork, outdoor furniture, cooktops, ovens, pans, doorhandles, sinks, baths, showers, BBQs, car wheels and even trainers.

“Get your tub of Pink Stuff and your Scrub Mommy and start Hinching away all those stubborn marks on the inside of the oven and glass,” says Sophie Hinchcliffe, aka Mrs Hinch. “Or take The Pink Stuff and a Scrub Mommy and work a decent amount of the paste onto the filthy underside of a saucepan. Leave for a bit and then work your Scrub Mommy in circular motions to work the paste into the pan then scrub off any burnt-on debris. Scrub Mommys is non-scratch so you won’t damage your pans, leaving them as good as new!”, says Instagram’s queen of clean and glamour mum, Mrs Hinch.

Miracle Multi-Purpose Cleaner: The Pink Stuff

The multi-purpose cleaner spray is ideal for hard surfaces. It works on stains and removes grease to leave a shiny clean result. It is streak free with a pleasant scent.

The Pink Stuff on Social Media

The Pink Stuff is currently seeing mums setting social media alight around the globe beyond just Instagram… On TikTok, @maraleebell has clocked up 800K views beautifully upcycling her old brass door handles here, while @beckyboo___ cleaning 10 years of dirt off her oven as the ultimate challenge is trending here, and Liz from Texas cleaning a door completely covered in kids scribbles has over half a million views (and counting) here.

Over on YouTube, The Pink Stuff’s five highest rating fan videos have clocked up over half a million views – here are five of their best cleaning hacks:

These cleaning products are worth trying on these:

  • Tea and coffee stains in the bottom of old cups – Scrub Mommy is perfect for reaching the inside bottom rim
  • Grouting between tiles – use an old toothbrush
  • Anything rusted – doorknobs, knockers and handles, towel rails, toasters, kettles, bins and beyond
  • Old bicycles or kiddie scooters looking muddy, dirty and rusty? Use the Pink Stuff on the wheels and frames to bring them back to life
  • Metal garden furniture has a habit of rusting if it’s left to the elements – use The Pink Stuff to remove the rust and get chairs and tables shining like new

Keep an eye out for Screen Daddy, a small but mighty, reusable wipe for smartphone and laptop screens.
