TikTokers say The Pink Stuff is the best, fastest, cheapest way to get rid of just about any stain. All you do is put it on any spot you want to remove, and then scrub it away with a cloth or sponge. Cooks swear by it to get rid of stubborn smears on silverware, pots and pans, while parents insist it's the best product for removing permanent-marker stains left by toddler Picassos.

"Where has this been my whole life?" wrote one ecstatic shopper. "It's so valuable! I used it to clean stains off floor vinyl planks, my white shoes, and marker on a wooden bedpost. I love the smell too, smells like a Starburst. I have no idea how I'm 37 and just found out about this."

Dirt and stains don't stand a chance against this portable carpet cleaner. Shoppers say it's also a must for removing messes from car upholstery and furniture.

"No review will suffice," said one thrilled shopper. "I have had it for a few months now and I could plug it in right now and it would work just as well as the day it came out of the box. ... We previously tried a friend's carpet cleaner to fix my husband's headliner after a light leak in his truck and all hers did was spread the stain out. It was no match for my Bissell. Same for the used SUV I bought about a month ago. My machine was pulling what looked like chocolate milk from the carpets."

"I happened to be watching a cleaning video on TikTok of all places, and the cleaner was marveling about this ridiculous-looking sponge," shared a rave reviewer. "I thought, what the heck, the price is right and I was getting tired of my sponges stinking. They are amazing! Ridges to get into crooks and crannies, a smile to wash cutlery, perfect size for your hand. I love them. It feels ridiculous, but they really are that useful."

"I love them for washing dishes," wrote a content kitchen cleaner. "They clean well, don't smell, and are easy to toss in the dishwasher to clean. They're also great for cleaning bathrooms and other surfaces around the house and easy to toss in the washing machine as well. I like that they come in several colors so it's easy to keep the ones I use in the kitchen separate from the ones I use elsewhere around the house."
