Magic Erasers are sponges made of the same foam as florists use without the dark green coloring. These sponges are great for cleaning as they break down into small grit that can scrub nearly anything away easily.
Magic Erasers get their name from the fact that they tend to make messes disappear like magic without a lot of extra work on your part. Keep this list of handy uses for Magic Erasers on hand to help make keeping your home clean easier than ever.
Clean Mildew Off Your Shower Curtain
Do you have a vinyl shower curtain that has mold or mildew at the bottom? This is a common issue for shower curtains and tossing the whole thing into the washing machine can leave the pattern or design destroyed. The good news is that you can use a Magic Eraser to completely remove this and leave your shower curtain looking new in just a few minutes.
Remove Coffee Stains from Mugs
If you like to drink coffee, you know just how annoying the rings and stains from your coffee can get when they build up in your favorite mug. The good news is that the tiny fibers in a Magic Eraser make them perfect for removing the stains that work their way into the pores and scratches in your porcelain mugs.
Get Crayon Marks Off of Walls
Like WD40, Magic Erasers are a lifesaver for parents of young kids that like to take their art from the paper to the wall. Magic Erasers are great for getting into the pores of the paint to help remove crayons from your walls. To help make it even more effective, spray with WD40 and let it sit before using your Magic Eraser.
Clean Your Shoes
The rubber soles of shoes tend to get very dirty very easily – white shoes, in particular. If you want to keep your shoes looking great, you can use a Magic Eraser to remove scuffs and marks. Simply dampen the Magic Eraser and rub over the surface of your soles and even the leather toppers of your shoes to make them shine like new again.
Clean Leather and Vinyl Surfaces
Leather and vinyl surfaces tend to get scuffed up fairly easily. This can become a big issue for keeping your home looking its best. The good news is that these surfaces clean really easily with a Magic Eraser. The Magic Eraser will remove any scuff marks without damaging the base material.
Remove Sticker Residue
The residue left behind from stickers and labels on everything from purchases at the store to jars you plan to reuse can easily be removed with a damp Magic Eraser. The small grit can really work to grip and remove the sticky substances that hold labels on.
Make your Stovetop Shine
Stovetops get dirty really easily and the baked-on messes are nearly impossible to remove. The good news is that a Magic Eraser can usually make short work of even the worst stovetops, allowing you to make it look new, even after making messy foods like tomato sauce that may stain an older scratched stovetop.
