How to Use Mr Clean Magic Erasers

It’s quick and easy to use Mr. Clean® products and these magic erasers or sheets actually do clean!  All of these are available on

Eliminate all the hard work using different chemicals for spring cleaning, floors, walls, cabinets, in the kitchen and bathroom.

Floors include hardwood, laminate, tile, and concrete removing occasional scuff marks too.

All you need to do is wet the magic eraser and use.  It works when wet to release the powerful cleaning power inside the eraser.

How Mr. Clean® Magic Erasers Work

Magic eraser sponges are made of melamine foam that is a porous, super-fine sandpaper with many tiny holes throughout so that when used with water the foam grabs onto the micro-particles of debris and dirt.

This same foam material is used for melamine dishes and insulation for sound proofing.  Subsequently, it was realized that it was highly effective to remove stains and scuff marks.

How to Use Magic Erasers

Wet the sponge and scrub in a circular motion.  Being abrasive, don’t use it on anything that could be damaged.  Always do a test spot before starting to clean.

After you’ve finished your cleaning project, wring out the sponge and let it air dry.  You can use the sponges many times before they need to be thrown out.  They will usually crumble and fall apart when they are unusable.

Magic Eraser Uses

I keep a box of magic erasers under my bathroom sink and under my kitchen sink with another package in the laundry room for quick clean up.  They are inexpensive when you think of how many times they can be reused.

From kids’ scuff marks on walls and floor to burned on food on your cooking range, you’ll find these are indeed magic cleaning.  Magic erasers will also remove permanent markers the kids used when coloring in their books.

Labels and stickers can be removed from any glass or plastic item.  The sticky gluey residue will come right off.

I don’t like fiberglass bath tubs and showers, preferring porcelain; however, the fiberglass ones seem to be what’s used today.  The stains and dirt will come off from these along with dirt and spots on the floor and tile or painted walls.

My fiberglass bath tub shower combination had hair dye stains, since this is where I wash my hair after putting color on at the sink and rinsing there.  I thought I’d never get it out but magic erasers did it for me and I was delighted that it’s now white again with soap scum and dye residue gone!
