This innovation initially came to life when…

I couldn’t get my grout clean after my gorgeous Himalayan cat Dudley spilled his bloody roo meat. I tried all the cleaners on the market without success, so with a bit of nouse created my own.

WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

…provide a multipurpose cleaner whose niche is as a broom-on, mop-off, grout and tile cleaner. No scrubbing required. Hey, I have a bad back.

It does this by…

…being specifically designed to be used for a variety of cleaning and sanitizing operations in both domestic and commercial applications. Pink Stuff cleans all hard surfaces, bar wood, and non-stainless metal.

PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

Pink Stuff is non-acid, non-corrosive, non-abrasive, antibacterial, antifungal, septic safe, food safe, & kills MRSA (golden staph) in 30 seconds. One .450 gm unit will provide 225 Litres of general cleaning solution or approx 24 sqm of grout and tile cleaning. The antifungal provides up to 4 weeks between cleans in the bathroom. HAPPY DAYS!!

Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…

…the fact that Pink Stuff is a concentrate, is practically green and it gives an immaculate clean with minimal effort and is time saving. Nearly forgot the most important thing: IT WORKS.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

…nasty acids which sometimes didn’t work or nasty acids combined with machinery to clean grout and tiles.

Its predecessors/competitors include…

The nice thing here is that competitors’ products contain horrible acids or are corrosive. The competitors that use orange oil etc. don’t work.

TARGET MARKET

It is made for…

ALL HOUSEHOLDS; ALL COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS; HOSPITAL CLEANING; CHILDCARE CENTRES; GYMS; AGED FACILITIES.

DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY

It is available for sale through…

3 Mitre 10 Stores, 1 Makit Hardware Store, 1 Hardware Distributor, and online.

Our marketing strategy is to…

Word of mouth which is working fairly well at the moment.
