I like to tell others when I find a product that really works and I have been using the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for years. You can use it on anything and everything! It takes off crayon to soap scum. It really works. It is one of the best cleaning products I have ever used.
My husband went to the dollar store the other day a brought home a different brand of magic eraser called the Quick Eraser by Scrub It. I worked just as well as the Magic Eraser but it was only a $1 for two erasers.
I just wanted to pass the saving along to you.
Below are some tips I found on using the Magic Eraser or Quick Eraser
Tip #1: removing build-up from the bottom of my iron, which has a non-stick finish.
I have one of those old white formica counter tops in my kitchen, and I noticed that the facings looked pretty grungy, so I took my magic eraser to them and they came out looking white and bright! Magic Eraser is also great for removing hairspray build-up from brass doorknobs.
Tip #2: I used to clean my bathtub/shower with cleaning solutions that would make me sick from smelling the fumes. I used the Magic Eraser on my bathtub/shower with ONLY water.
Tip #3: When we got ready to sell our five-year old house, I took a
Magic Eraser and spot cleaned the walls in the entire house (which were all
white). Everyone who looked at the house were amazed when we told them we had
Tip #4: It can take off crayon marks, ink. I have used it in place of dusting. Makes your things looks sharp. I even used it on my monitor. It really cleaned that up well. I used it on my file cabinet. It is metal and did a great job cleaning it up. I used it once to wash my windows, esp. the crayons that were colored on it.
Tip #5: I have used the Magic Erasers to remove black scuff marks off
my WHITE cowboy boots! Worked great!!!
Tip #6: Cigarette burns in formica type desktop! They took some time
some rubbing, that’s it. No cleaners, no grinding sanding, scuffing, scraping.
Tip #7: I have 3-year-old twins who seem to find pens, crayons,
markers, etc., and color on the walls and doors. This eraser takes it all off
easily. It even removed black permanent marker from my bathroom counter top. I
also use it to clean the doors (they are white) baseboard, and anything else I
Tip #8: The most amazing thing I’ve used it on is the antique mahogany bed and dresser in my daughter’s room. She had gotten craft paint and marker on both and the Magic eraser took both off of both pieces and didn’t damage the antique finish at all.
Tip #9: Magic Eraser is the best thing that I have come across. I had
an old wedding cake knife that I needed to use for my stepdaughter’s wedding
this past weekend, and I had tried to get the tarnish off with Tarn-X and that
got most of it off, but there was one stubborn area on the knife that just
wouldn’t come clean, so I decided to try the Magic Eraser. Much to my surprise
it not only took the tarnish off, but it also shined it. It is by far the best
all around cleaning tool that I have come across.
Tip #10: We live in a VERY old house and the tub is an original cast
iron one. The finish is mostly gone off of it and it is a pill to clean. I have
discovered if I take Magic Eraser and run around the water line when my bath is
over, I can postpone the multi-hours of cleaning that it takes to get it clean.
This alone has been almost a lifesaver for me – and definitely a back saver.
Tip #11: I’ve used the Magic Erasers just about everywhere you can
imagine. I was most impressed when I used it on our boat. Inside and out, it
worked great and took stuff off that I just knew would never come off. The boat
is snow-white, so it’s pretty hard to keep clean, but they work wonders. Also,
they work wonderful on leather seats too. We used them on my husband’s pickup
(which he uses for work out in the field) and it looked brand new. It takes
coffee stains out of white countertops, grease and grime off of the stove,
cleans up shoes, takes bugs and tar off of cars, the list goes on and on.
Something that I’ve found that helps them last longer for me: I cut them in
half. Since I only use one end of them when I clean, I started cutting them in
half before I use them. They seem to last longer for me. I can clean something
really grimy with half of one instead of dirtying up the whole thing.
Tip #12: We have hard water in our area, and the Magic Eraser has been
the only cleaner that can get the residue off of our glass shower door. We
squeegee it every time we use the shower, but the residue still collects. The
eraser takes the residue right off.
Tip #13: I am a custodian for a large church and use Magic Erasers for
everything. At home, I have found that they are great for cleaning wood,
especially around door handles and frames, and the top wooden step of my stairs.
Tip #14: I found that I can use these sponges to clean off my stainless steel finish
