The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and Me
The first time I saw a friend of mine running through her house with a little white sponge I mocked her look of determination and thought she was crazy. The stain in particular she was trying to attack was a scuff on the wall that no one seemed to be able to remove. It held its ground in sheer defiance as effortless scrubbing had commenced and we had all but given up on it. As a matter of fact we decided it was charming, rather than irritating. It was like wall art, …free wall art. It was in a place that couldn’t be covered up without looking suspicious so the consensus was just to live with it…until that day. The wall now devoid of free wall art, she looked at me with an accomplished smile. Hmmm, the possibilities.
The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser has now become a household staple like milk or bread or seasons of Ghost Hunters on DVD..(I know, I’m odd). The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is the perfect tool for removing ambiguous scuffs and stains. The counter underneath the coffee pot is once again clean and shiny as though a person who WASN’T clumsy lived here. Thomas Trains no longer leave lasting impressions on the walls when the Island of Sodor is taken over by aliens, and shoes worn on the linoleum floors isn’t the disaster it use to be. I read somewhere in a forum that The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser can even remove paint from cars if you aren’t careful.
The Mr. Clean website recommends that you use them for food stuck on plates, grease stains, bathroom surfaces, and microwaves, but the creative person with a kid or pet in the house can surely find numerous benefits from these handy little devices. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser only needs to be dampened to work its magic and it disintegrates as it’s used, so no yucky sponge laying around until someone thinks to throw it away. I used The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser when I moved into my new home recently to tackle mysterious scuffs on white windowsills and it worked like a charm. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is one more item in my cleaning arsenal that shouldn’t be underestimated.
