Guide Review - Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers actually make cleaning fun. These foam-like pads are made with a special material that penetrates hard-to-clean surfaces and grooves. You simply wet the pad with water, squeeze out the excess and gently wipe away dirt. These work great for removing crayon marks from walls, scuff marks from floors and even water and soap scum in bathrooms. For parents, this is a must for cleaning all around your house.

I have found Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to be very effective in the kitchen. I easily cleaned the cooked-on food and grease around the burners on my stove top, for instance. The Magic Erasers also clean the outside surface of the refrigerator, removing the dirt inside the surface grooves.

Magic Erasers can also be used outdoors. I've cleaned the outside surface of our barbecue grill with the eraser and I've removed dead bugs from the plastic front bumper of our car. I gently wiped the bumper and the bugs came right off.

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are not recommended for use on some painted surfaces, but I've used mine on white, semi-gloss painted walls with great success. Test first on an inconspicuous area.
