I just love cleaning with a magic eraser. Probably my favorite use is cleaning my stove top. After I realized that worked so well, I wanted to see what else my magic erasers could clean. I was surprised at how many different uses for Mr. Clean magic erasers there are. This is one of my favorite house cleaning tips and tricks.
One thing I will say about magic erasers is that they can be abrasive. So, if you are unsure of how a specific surface will be, test an inconspicuous area before trying to clean the whole thing. Let that be a warning to you. 😉
