Mr. Clean Eraser - How I Use It At Home And At Work
Antoinette has shared how she uses the Mr. Clean Eraser in her home, and also at work.
I really like and I’m very impressed with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
I bought my first one after a friend told me about how good they work. There had been some stained Kool-Aid marks on my counter since I bought my house. I had used everything on these marks to try to get them off, including Comet powder, S.O.S. pads, and bleach. When I bought the Magic Eraser that was the first thing I tried it on. I couldn’t believe it! It took the marks off without even any effort!
I have since used it in my bathrooms and to get fingerprints and marks off the walls.
We even have this dry erase board at work that we have to add new data to everyday, and when we would wipe the old data off, it was still always showing through. I took a Magic Eraser to work and it took all of it off! People at work would take turns trying it out!
Two days later I went to work and couldn’t find it. Where could it be? Upon further observation I realized someone had torn it into pieces and threw it in the trash, probably not realizing what it was.
I am now still using it to erase data on the board, BUT even though I saved two small torn pieces to do this, I hide it from everyone!
Thanks Antoinette for sharing how you've successfully used the Mr. Clean Eraser in both your home and office.
Tips For Using Mr. Clean Eraser To Clean Walls And Other Surfaces
SLN wrote in to share how she uses her Mr. Clean Eraser around her home.
The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is the best invention since sliced bread! There really is nothing that this eraser cant erase from your walls.
You don't even have to scrub hard, just dampen the eraser a little bit and rub lightly. If you wet the sponge too much, then you will find that when you press it onto the wall to rub it will drip a white film that will run down the wall.
However, don't use this eraser on dark colored walls. In fact it's best to only use them on white walls because they will leave a white film.
They work best on glossy walls I find. Just do a small patch at first and wait until it dries. If you can see a white dull patch then the best way to wash the wall is to use the eraser, then go over it again with a damp white cloth to remove any film.
They are pricey to buy, but the generic ones work just as well and are a lot cheaper.
These are definitely a "must have" in everyones cleaning kit for their home.
Thanks so much for sharing your tips for cleaning walls and other items in our home with this versatile cleaning product SLN. Thanks so much for the great tips!
Question....can I use the Magic Eraser on a ceramic stove top or will it damage the surface?
Hi Adela, thanks for asking me this question.
My initial answer, in my mind, was yes, of course. But then, I thought, let's just check to find out for sure, since you're right, you wouldn't want to scratch the surface of your stove.
I checked the Magic Eraser site and was actually quite disappointed that they had no information about what surfaces the product was safe for, versus not, since they suggest through their advertising that it's quite versatile (and I know from readers suggestions of what you can do with it that this is true).
Most tiles are ceramic, and you can definitely use this product in your bathroom to clean up surfaces, they clearly suggest that in advertising.
Therefore, my answer is yes, I think you can use this product on your ceramic stove top. In fact, there are many pictures of this exact use floating around (see the one above as an example).
It's a great cooktop cleaner, especially for burned on and stuck on messes.
That being said, if you're concerned about scratching it is prudent to test any product you use (including this one) in an inconspicuous area first before using it all over your stove top just to be on the safe side.
It Cleans Bugs From My Car Grill, Hood & Windows Like Nothing I Have Ever Used Before
The Magic Eraser cleans bugs from my car grill, hood and windows like nothing I have ever used before.
Bugs are the hardest thing I've ever had to clean. This product makes it super simple. Amazing. No additional cleaners necessary.
Add a little water if necessary or if really dried on, wet a dryer sheet, use it on the dried bug area then go over it again with the Magic Eraser. You'll love the results!
Thanks for the tip Tammie!
I would be cautious with this product on any painted surface however, such as on the hood of your car. It is basically a scrubber, which is of course what gets off the bugs, but it can basically remove the clear coat and also the paint from your vehicle which is definitely not what you want.
In fact, a reader sent in this comment:
Don't use it on your hood - at least not on your paint. This is the equivalent of using 2000 grit sandpaper to remove residue. Very effective on hard surfaces but not anything with clear coat - you can go right through it.
So just be careful with what surfaces you use the product on, and if there is any doubt in your mind test it in an inconspicuous location first before using it somewhere noticeable!
I Use The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser For All Purpose Cleaning In My Home
Janet has shared what her favorite all purpose cleaner is -- the Mr. Clean Eraser.
When it comes to all purpose cleaners I really dislike sprays because they can be hard to control and it's easy to use too much.
Whenever I need to clean a surface like a table or floor I use this eraser. It's probably the most innovative product for cleaning materials in the last ten years.
I just wet it with a bit of water, go to the object I need to clean, and rub. The dirt, debris, scuff marks, or any other unwanted specks just come right off.
I've used it on porcelain, linoleum, wood, marble, tile, and glass. I haven't found it to discolor anything, or warp what I'm cleaning in any way.
It has no scent, so you don't have to worry about any artificial, chemical-ish smell. Possibly the only con to the Magic Eraser is that it can take some elbow grease to get tough marks off, but they eventually give way and disappear.
And the best part is they are available at almost any store that sells household cleaners, they come about 3-5 in a pack, and just one sponge can last about a month or two.
Thanks Janet for sharing your review of the Mr. Clean Eraser.
Lots of people love this product, since it is great for both quick touch ups and deep cleaning.
I use the eraser on my stainless steel appliances.
After using it I use a wet towel to remove any left-over residue and then use a dry towel to buff. Works great!
I used it on my stainless steel microwave and stove and cannot believe the shine!
Taylor's Note Of Caution:
For occasional stains and scuffs, as long as you used light pressure and went with the grain of the metal this should be alright, but stainless steel appliances can actually get scratched and dulled, and since these appliances are expensive you should always use caution!
I would strongly suggest doing this infrequently, and also test first in an inconspicuous place.
In addition, over time the dulling effect may be more noticeable as well. Just be careful, but I'm glad it has worked well for both these ladies!
***Update: Another reader, Pam, also shared that she uses them for cleaning her chrome appliances, such as her toaster and coffee maker, but was very clear she used it "lightly." I think that is definitely key! ***End Update
Mr. Clean Eraser Saved Lots Of Scrubbing In The Bathroom
Megan has shared her experience of the first time she used the Mr. Clean Eraser in her home.
I was incredibly impressed the first time I used this product in my home, in my bathroom.
Actually, a teacher at my child’s school suggested it to me. So, I went to Walmart and bought one, and the same day I took the eraser to the bathroom to do a long put off cleaning project of cleaning the bathtub. With this tool I finished a lot quicker than I expected.
The mildew was very bad all along the caulk of the tub and fixtures. The bottom of the tub and shower head was also covered with rust due to the hard water. I had been putting it off because I didn't think it was really possible to get the tub clean again, and I didn't want to waste my time.
When using the eraser there was virtually no odor to it. It not only removed the mildew with surprising ease, but also took care of the rust along the tub and fixtures. I was amazed.
Since then I have recommended this product many times, and believe it is definitely worth the money! Overall I found the Mr. Clean Eraser to be amazing.
Thanks Megan for sharing how this product cleaned up your bathtub.
