Guide Review - Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

Opening up the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, I was of course skeptical. Like many moms of young children, markings on the walls has been the bane of my existence. I also had the usual run-of-the-mill stains and spots on other surfaces of my home.

I opened up the small box to reveal two intensely white Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Following the directions on the box, I added water, squeezed out the excess, and headed for the nearest crayon mural. With one swipe the crayon was disappearing. A few swipes later I got shoe marks off of the refrigerator. Next, I tackled pencil sketches along the baseboards. Rub marks from moving furniture were long gone when I used the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on the stair railing.

After wiping down most of the house, I learned a few important things about Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

1. There are surfaces that can be stripped of their finish and gloss when you use the Magic Eraser. Unlikely candidates for use are glossy paint and finished wood.

2. The time I saved by not using my old tried and true methods of mark removal was astonishing.

3. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is meant to begin to disintegrate beginning after the first use. Follow the directions on the back of the box to determine when the Magic Eraser needs to disappear into the trash.

Happy Erasing.
