Mr Clean Magic Eraser Is A Miracle
Posted by on
My 2 year old nephew decided to be devious this morning and drew all over our kitchen table in green permanent marker. I tried to clean it up. Nothing I used worked.

I called my mom to ask what I can use. The women has had 8 kids so I figured she had a few tricks up her sleeve. She told me to come over and borrow her Mr Clean Magic Eraser. I've seen the commercials and thought I would give it a shot since nothing else worked.

I took it home, got the eraser damp and voila! It actually worked! The marker came right off! I decided to see what else this little eraser would clean. I used it to clean all the doors and walls in the house and now they look white again.
My only complaint with this product is that after a while, it falls apart and you have to keep rinsing it out after every use. But, it works much better than soap and water. If you have little kids in the house, I recommend getting a few of of these erasers.

I agree...Magic Eraser rules!! My sister turned me onto these things. Not only does it remove stuff that other cleaners won't remove, it removes everyday stuff soooo much easier. Cleaning the microwave and stovetop is so much easier now. I hardly have to use any muscle.

OMG, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these things. They are great for about a million different little household annoyances. And very reasonably rpiced, even without a sale our coupon.

Yeah I went crazy for about an hour cleaning everything I could think of around the house. I didn't think to clean the stove with it. Thanks bunnyhead, I will try that next

I love the eraser! I used it and got the nasty grimed on grease from the hood of my stove off. Nothing else would do it. It also works good on bathroom tile.

I agree YaYa...they really are magic..don't be fooled by cheaper makes of the Mr. Clean product. They don't do much of anything. I went to BJ's and got a case of 12 for a really good price (Forgot the exact amount, but it came out less than I pay for the double packs). Now, all I use for my cleaning is the Magic Erasers. Next time you need to clean your stove, use these, it makes the task sooooooooooooooooo much easier! Also, they are great on the non-stick pans!

The eraser is faboo! I am looking forward to seeing if it gets the artillery spore fungus off my brand new siding this Spring. The eraser is one of the things listed as one of the few things that will.

I used one to buff a paint mark off of my car (don't ask) and it worked!
DebtorBasher on 2010-01-10:
I haven't tried it on windows yet...but I'm guessing they would really clean the water marks left by rain and maybe even on the car windshield...I'll have to try that out.

I'm going to run to the store and buy a few. I want to see if it will clean the inside of my car which is stained with coffee spots

Thanks for the tip L'yaya. I'll have to give it a try now, I fiured it would not really work like on TV.

ps) Arizona is putting a hurt on Green Bay early in the game.

Who was supervising the 2 year old? Don't tell me he was left on his own to do whatever he wanted to. Nothing was mentioned about discipline.

This review isn't about discipline. It's about the magic eraser.

He's two. Sometimes two years olds do things like that. You turn your back for two seconds and the next thing you know, there's marker on the table or dishwashing soap all over the floor. Do you have kids SloMo? If you do, don't they get into things too?

I think some people on here try to muster up an argument any way they can. I mean really. This is about the magic eraser and not about supervision of children.

Thank you Tennboy. And you can be the best parent in the world, but I am willing to bet your kids have destroyed something in the house or colored on the walls at one time or another.

O.ooooo paint marks....someone with a RED car door-dinged my WHITE truck last week. I wonder if the eraser will get rid of that red paint mark.
Anonymous on 2010-01-10:
Exactly, Yaya and Tennboy. And Yaya, you don't have to justify anything to anyone about how it happened.

I just don't like people questioning my parenting skills. When my nephew does things like that, he does get put into time out for 2 minutes. And he has to help clean it up.
Nohandle on 2010-01-10:
Let's see here. I've got two pets around this place. If I find the need for a Magic Eraser to clean an area messed up by one of my pets does that mean I wasn't watching them or they weren’t property trained. Nope, to my way of thinking it happened. I was attending to something else at the time. Folks keep on with the hints. Nice review BTY, Little. I might mention I had a neighbor over and those two kids of hers could tear up an anvil in about 30 seconds while you watched in dismay.

When my girls were small, we had a wall that was the 'Art Canvas'. They were allowed to draw and color and paint on it. It stayed up for years, and I hated painting over it when they got too old to be 'artistic'. Having the one wall for art kept them from marking anywhere else.
Nohandle on 2010-01-10:
Lady, ever heard of someone who used the framework around a door to measure the height of a child along with the date? It went on for years. It was amazing the growth. They also hated to have it eventually painted. HEY, I bet that Magic Eraser would have taken it off in a minute.

I bet so lol.

My mom did that with us Nohandle. She never did paint over it. It was still there when we sold that house. I bet the new owners just painted over it

The lines from when us kids were growing are still on the wall. right next to the grandkids now!

My 2 year old artwork was on the wall and was never removed... My Mom didn't have the heart to paint over it...As far as I know it is still there...68 years later.

We have our kids hand and feet prints in cement in the back yard. I am going to pour another small area and get the grandkids now. Our kids think my idea is pretty lame, but I like it.
Nohandle on 2010-01-10:
Super, forget what your kids say. I think that's a cute idea. I recall my handprints were in the edge of the cement on the terrace of my childhood home. I have no idea if they are still there, but if not the owners now will be very sad when I become President and they have destroyed that valuable history not to mention the money they have lost. LOL

Thanks, NH! I told them I am going to do it next time we get them all together and it warms up a little. It was only 78' today, damn near needed my coat.

78...you make me laugh!

It's about 70 degrees here in Phoenix today. I dressed the kids in long sleeved shirts

Uh' oh'... Green Bay is making a hell of a comeback and making it a game down in Phoenix today. Hope the Card's can get it together as I took them and the points.

lol wo did we go from talking about a Mr Clean magic eraser to the super bowl?

ugh sorry I'm tired not the superbowl, football.

Oh Tennboy, I live in Phoenix and am on here instead of watching the game. Superbowl is being a sweetie and is keeping me informed

There is no Superbowl today, it's the Packers/Cards playoff game in Glendale Arizona. L'yaya and Wally's turf.

My husband uses these to clean out old video game systems he find at the good will. They definitely take off marker and years of grime better than anything else.

When I was 2 I drew a big orange monster in crayon on my mom's freshly wallpapered wall. It had to be removed and redone cause the glue underneath wasn't dry and there was an indentation in the shape of a big monster head even after the crayon was removed. Kid's just do those kinds of things so don't feel bad yaya.

No refills
Posted by on
I bought a Mr. Clean Magic Reach last year and it saved me from having to bend over the tub and clean. Now I can't find the refills anywhere in the local stores and although I can find them online I'm forced to buy them in bulk. I'm getting sick and tired of products these companies make and then stop making the refills for. I also purchased a Swiffer wet jet and they now have a new model out that holds more detergent, but now I can't find the refills for the earlier model. Buyer beware.

You can reuse the cleaning solution container for the regular Swiffer wet jet. Remove the cap with pliers, and add your own cleaning solution. I use a little spic and span, a little rubbing alcohol, and water. Make sure the cap is on tight.

Note: this will only work for 2 -3 times before the container starts to leak, but, for me it's worth getting a few more uses out of it.
PepperElf on 2009-08-07:
oo that's interesting


and another solution.... just put your cleaner in a spray bottle
there's no rules that say you have to use the on-board spray system to spread the cleaner.

Have you tried calling the customer service $ listed on the packaging. The Customer service rep would be able to tell you what stores in your area carry or are supposed to carry the refills. Also, many times as a thank you for using their products they will send you coupons or samples.
BokiBean on 2009-08-07:
I'm sick of buying products and then having the company phase them out so that refills are unavailable too!

I bought this cool little electric machine that uses "scent discs" with different aromas, works like a charm. Now I can't find the dang discs anywhere but eBay..they are more expensive and you have to add shipping on top.

It was obsolete right about the time I purchased mine. Irritating!!

Very helpful review.

Check your local Big Lots store. I was in mine a couple of weeks ago and they were selling the complete Mr Clean Magic Reach kits for $5.00. I didn't notice how many refills came with the starter kit, but it might be worth buying the whole kits.

In addition, they had the Mr Clean Spot Free Car Wash Kits for $4.00. I bought several of them, as it was cheaper than buying the refill soap and filters.

Great suggestions MM and PE!

The bending over the tub part dug up some old memories too.
Thanks for the review!

Another brand I can't find anymore is the little Durabrand vacuums that were sold in walmart. I have two of them, they work great but alas I can't find the filters for them anymore.
GenuineNerd on 2011-06-29:
Clorox also discontinued their Ready Mop, although I was able to continue using it by way of making my own cleaning solution, by using about 1/2 cup of Pine Sol or Lysol and filling the bottle the rest of the way with water. I haven't been able to find bottles of the Clorox cleaning solution, but was still able to buy pads for it, which I stocked up on, "just in case."
