Clean With Magic

Have you ever used a Magic Eraser to clean with? I know this product has been around for a while, but I am just now discovering it! After I used the Magic Eraser for the first time, I was shocked and amazed and it left me compelled to go around the house trying to find other things to clean! It truly is magical the way it wipes away the dirt and grime with virtually no force at all! Just wipe and watch the dirt disappear magically. I use a Magic Eraser mainly in my kitchen since I have all white appliances. The Eraser cleans the textured handles of my refrigerator in one swipe. A word of caution though, it WILL take the paint off your walls if you scrub too hard. Best thing to do if you are going to use it on your painted walls to remove those nasty black scuff marks, fingerprints or crayon, is to test an inconspicuous area first to be sure that it does not remove the paint and then wipe away!

Here are just some of the things a Magic Eraser will do:

>remove dried paint from door hinges
>remove tarnish from silver
>remove mold & mildew from anything plastic
>clean & polish gold jewelry
>remove soap scum in the tub and shower
>remove marks on walls

I couldn't live without it with all of the little fingerprints around my house. It is a great product and saves you from having to repaint every few weeks - LOL!! Your suggestion is right about the paint, test first, but I have found you don't need to scrub, just wipe, and I haven't had a paint problem!! Thanks for sharing!

I love the new, Spring do!

And, I think you've sold me. I'm going to try one of those magic erasers!

Great idea! I have tons of markings on my walls because of you know who. I'll give it a try.

I have been having a love affair with Mr. Clean for three years now. Shhhhh...don't tell Brian ;0)

I got a free sample and LOVED it! No clue what's in it. (Magic?)

Yes!! We're thinking along the same lines. I think I sang the praises of Mr Clean's Magic Eraser in your last post. In our house we have 2 humans and 4 animals...and since it's a townhome, there are lots of stairs. That means that anytime a piece of furniture or pet equipment (e.g. a ginormous birdcage) has to be moved between floors, no matter how carefully, it inevitably leaves its mark on the walls. Mr Clean's Magic Eraser has done wonders for those walls. I haven't tried any of the other uses you listed, but I will now! Thanks!

You've been busy with Mr. Clean! I used it to take paint from my hamper off the wall before we moved, saving us from repainting an entire wall and to take the tub grime off the bottom of the tub when the scrubber bubbles wouldn't clean it off. (among other things) Oh, and I love it for the fridge handle! (I wrote a similar post a few years ago when I discovered this amazing product!)
