Who knew, that I’d first hear about Mr. Clean Magic Erasers at a conference about blogging ?
It’s true. When Glenn Reynolds (a.k.a. “The Instapundit ” and godfather of the blogging world) mentioned in passing how much he liked this handy household gadget, I knew it must be great. And when he commented on its ability to work on a wide variety of surfaces, rather than just those stated on the box, I knew this product would be right up my alley.
I’m not kidding when I say these Magic Erasers truly work miracles… and they’re only about a buck apiece! (You can actually buy them in bulk for less than $10 !)
These foam-like pads are extremely lightweight and resemble pieces of styrofoam.
- They are made of a porous melamine material that gets into hard-to-clean surfaces and tiny grooves… like magic!
- All it takes is a dab of water to moisten the eraser. No other cleaning chemicals needed (…and no elbow grease).
My Favorite Uses For Mr. Clean Magic Erasers
The very first time I tried a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, I was SHOCKED. It worked so well… but what really sold me was its ability to clean the slightly rough, textured surface that the handles of our appliances are made of.
After a few minutes of wiping down appliances, light
switches, and cupboards (also lightly textured), I was compelled to go all around the house looking for stuff to clean. These things are great at getting into the tiny cracks & crevices of virtually any surface!
My other favorite uses for Magic Erasers:
Removing scuff marks from floors, doors, and baseboards (…not only scuff marks, but also years of black grime & built-up hairspray on white baseboards in the bathrooms & door panels of cabinets/doors)
Making tennis shoes look like new again
Cleaning white grout effortlessly
Removing set-in tea stains in the Mr. Coffee Instant Tea Maker (pitcher & tea holder)
Cleaning the textured plastic parts of the computer monitor, keyboard & mouse
Removing set-in stains from drink coasters (…even those ceramic ones)
Cleaning in the tiny nooks & crannies of the electric can opener
…but wait, there’s more!
Following are dozens of creative uses for Mr. Clean Magic Erasers — from others who’ve used the product.
In general, these magic erasers can “remove” or “clean” virtually anything! (For the record, that Magic Erasers warning that’s floating around stating they’re dangerous is a hoax .)
