Have you tried this?

Pin It Now!

I know this sounds weird but I love cleaning products. I tend to stick to my basics though; PineSol, Windex, Comet, and Clorox Cleanup. When the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Sponge first came out I signed up to get a free one. What a great marketing idea they had. I fell in love with this sponge and have continued to buy it and to tell everyone I know about it. It works great on scuff marks which is what I use it for most often. It's amazing, it has even removed permanent marker off a wall (a friend's daughter did this, not my kids). I've never written to a company to praise a product but I actually thought of doing it for this. If you haven't tried it yet you can get a free one here. The only problem is they don't last very long, they start to disintegrate pretty quickly (probably designed that way so you keep buying them.) I only wish this would have come out when my children were younger.

Cindy, the other day when I was helping my daughter clean her apartment I discovered that Mr. Clean has a heavy duty eraser! It stayed together and even has wavy sides that fit your fingers! LOL! While I'm raving about cleaning supplies have you ever tried CLR? (I get it at Walmart.) It takes the soap scum off your shower without even scrubbing! Enough of this...

kjquilts: Thanks, I'll have to look for the heavy duty eraser. I have used CLR but I swear they changed it. It seems like it used to work so much better than it does now. Maybe my hard water stains are just worse here than where I used to live. Maybe I just need to try it again. I also like the scubbing bubbles bathroom cleaner for soap scum on my shower doors.

Want to know a really good use for the Mr. Clean eraser? Fixing self tanner mistakes! Seriously - if you get a darker, streaky area just lightly go over it with the Mr. Clean until it matches the rest of you. Voila! Perfect tan.

It's also fabulous on those gritty, embossed areas on the bottom of your tub. I tried everything short of sandblasting my tub and nothing would get it clean. Then I heard about the eraser and it worked perfectly.

We should write to them. We could do a commercial.

Andrea, Wow I would have never thought of that for self tanning! I have Pergo floors in my kitchen and when I moved in they had dirt imbedded in the grain. I tried everything to get it out. Nothing worked except the Magic Eraser Sponge and I didn't have to rub very hard, just wiped it off.
