Can I use the pink stuff cleaner on White Trainers? 

Yes, you can. White trainers usually feature raw material of latex rubber, which is moulded into a shape to create an outsole and a white synthetic leather upper. When the pink stuff cleaner paste is mixed with water, it breaks down stains to whitten the trainers.

Pink stuff can be used to clean converse with tough surface stains as the product is soluble in water. 

Leather Shoes

Black Trainers

Black trainers come in a variety of materials. Black leather trainers are normally made of nonwoven fabric and polyurethane resin; therefore, they can resist all stains and spills and are easy to clean using pink stuff paste in the event of soiling. 

How do you use pink stuff on shoes? 

Apply gently on a dampened cloth, medium bristle brush, or sponge and rub the surface of the shoes and rinse well with clean water. If necessary, polish with a clean, dry cloth. 

Does the pink stuff get rid of yellow stains on shoes?

The simple answer is Yes!

Stains on shoes usually consist of starchy carbohydrate elements, protein, oil, dyes, and pigments such as red wine and lipstick. The majority of stains contain a mixture of these components. 

Stubborn protein-based stains, i.e. blood on your trainers, are broken down by the pink stuff cleaning paste when mixed with water. This speeds up the chemical processes, removing them from the surface of shoes with minimal effort. 

Does the Pink Stuff clean white shoes?

Yes, immediately clean using the cleaning paste after getting dirty, as this gives little chance for stains to set into fabric or synthetic leather as they will be difficult to remove. 

Be careful not to over-clean white trainers as eventually they will get worn down. I recommend rotating. Check out the latest trainers at the UK and European retailers.

No! No known reactivity hazards, stability concerns, conditions likely to result in a hazardous situation, or hazardous decomposition products linked with the pink stuff paste when cleaning shoes.

The pink stuff cleaning paste is a degreasing agent that has a mild detergent odour. It contains a blend of quartz, soap, sodium carbonate (baking soda), and sodium percarbonate to de-stain, deodorize, and whiten stained shoes.
