    I use them to clean the white rubber window molding on the outside of our 5th wheel trailer. It is the ONLY thing that works!!!

  2. Samantha hart says:

    Mr.clean also polishes silver

  3. Eileen says:

    The magic eraser works really well removing the waxy,grimy buildup on a hand held metal lemon squeezer clamp. Regular soap and water and scrubbing does not work well but the eraser cleans it fast. I also used it today to clean the rubber handles on my kitchen shears that had gotten really dirty when I used them for gardening. Regular soap and water wasn’t cutting it, but the magic eraser worked, it did require some concentrated effort though. I use it also to clean the stove top black char spots. Again concentrated effort here but it won’t scratch the stove top porcelain. it also worked to clean out my ceramic tea pot of heavy tea stains.

  4. Sandy says:

    Use a few drops of hand sanitizer with the magic eraser for tough stains, especially magic markers. It works even more amazingly.

  5. Susie Jacobson says:

    I scrub my white walls from time to time.

  6. Cynthia says:

    I used it on my refrigerator that has a grainy feel. Regular cleansers just wouldnt do the job so I tried a magic eraser and wow it got all the grim off and in all the creves. I went out and bought more!β™₯ love for my tennis shoes!

  8. Nora Rauner says:

    magic eraser easily removed dried nail polish from my kitchen table. my husband uses them to scrub our old kitchen flooring.

    1. Cindy says:

      Does it work on laminated flooring

      1. carrie says:

        I haven’t tried it but I think it would work great. I would test in a hidden area first before using it in an exposed area. Thank you.

  9. Jamie shaw says:

    The eraser also removes scratches off car

  10. Katie says:

    I just used it to get black marks off of my car…someone scraped their black car against my white car….had to scrub but looks perfect

    1. DDTAY says:

      Hi Katie – Someone with a white car scraped a white mark onto my black car, and up until now I’ve not been able to get the mark off. I’m going to try the magic eraser tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

    3. G Luce says:

      I am a school teacher andthey work great on desktops without using harsh chemicals.
      I buy 50 for 12 bucks on Amazon but they are very thick. I use a sharp knife and make 2 cuts to get thinner pads. They will last longer than using a whole thick pad.

      BTW they saved my life! I gotblack sharpy on my wife’s French tablecloth. Using an me took it right out!πŸ˜‚

  11. Sherma Campbell says:

    I am new at using Magic Erasers. I did get a huge bag of the off brand from Amazon. Do you use these dry or wet? Please help.

    1. Mary says:

      Thanks for the information

  12. Bethany says:

    I have used a magic eraser on my pool liner. It works great! Big time and back saver!!

  13. DeLane says:

    When my son was going through the police academy, on top of the 4 and 5 hours of homework, they sent him home one night stating he had to strip the weeks of wax polish off his boots and then get them back to a β€œmilitary” shine…he and his buddy were at a complete loss on how to do this quickly and do all their homework.. Magic Eraser to the rescue.. Had the polish off in minutes.

  14. Wendy says:

    My iron was horribly brown stained. Magic Eraser took off the brown stains like it was nothing. I was blown away! Worked fantastic.

  15. Nancy says:

    The Magic Eraser is the best fiberglass boat cleaner I have found! I had tried everything to clean stubborn stains in our 25 year old boat. So I thought I wonder if a magic eraser would work, so I ran in the house and got a magic eraser and OMG it worked so good I had to start over and redo everything I had already cleaned. It cleaned so quick and easy and better, the fiberglass floor came cleaner than it had been in years, also the vinyl, the stuff I had been spending so much time scrubbing. I buy the big tubs because you go thru a few, but it is so much easier now.

  16. Judy says:

    I used it when I had to get grout off of tile. It took it off easily.

  17. Lindsay says:

    You can also use it to remove wood stains from your cup being wet. You just make sure the eraser is only slightly wet and scrub back and forth only on the area the ring is. Then wipe with a dry cloth and repeat. Takes the wood stains right out!

  18. Barb says:

    Clean your screens. No drip dry. .wet the sponge wipe one side, turn wipe the other. Sparkling screens in no time! Love this time saver!

  19. Ronda says:

    I just removed a black moldy looking stain off my wood cutting board with a magic eraser.

  20. Jeannie says:

    I have found that the Magic Erasers Original, which is pictured in the article is the best! It falls apart faster, but that’s because it’s working! I like it much better than all the “improved” and the off brand versions! !

  21. Janet says:

    Can you use on laminate flooring?

  22. Melody says:

    I just discovered these and took the soap scum off tub. Looks like New!! I have tried everything else and Wala! Gone!

  23. Karima says:

    I love how they take off the oil residue build up on nonstick trying pans! I love their mop heads but they are so expensive. Have you figured out how to attach the cheaper ones to something with a long handle? My hubby wants to use them to clean the oil off the hood over the deep fryer, flat top and charbroiler at our restaurant.

  24. Natalie says:


  25. Liz says:

    Magic eraser works wonders on a pool liner. I tried it out and month ago when I was taking my pool down for the season. I highly recommend it!

  26. Kupuanani says:

    While in Hawai’i in my rental car, I was backing out of the small parking garage space and scrapped one of those yellow poles and left yellow all over the back end of the van. I was horrified and thought oh no the insurance is going to go crazy at this. Well, I purchased 3 boxes of Magic Erasers and began working on trying to get as much of the yellow off. It worked!!!!! And the inspector at the car rental couldn’t even tell that the van had been scrapped. Love this product!

  27. Carrie says:

    Staining our deck, the magic eraser worked great to removed the over spray stain on our white vinyl slider and siding.

    I’ve used the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on practically EVERYTHING, and it lives up to its name. Sinks, tubs, countertops, floors, carpets, the inside of the fridge, even my shoes. I would love to start receiving emails like this one. I love cleaning tips, as well as other life hacks, and I like recipes as well.

  32. Kim says:

    I clean the office in a rubber plant. We have carpeting that frequently gets “rubber-powder stains” from foot traffic from the adjoining plant.
    Magic erasers rub these stains away!😁

  33. Nicole says:

    My favorite use is to clean the inside of my car windshield. No more streaks when driving into the sun.

    1. carrie says:

      Great Idea Nicole!

    2. Roxie says:

      I’m definitely trying this on the car windshield. Even the guys at the car wash leave streaks.

  34. JOY 808 says:

    The inside ring in a wash machine vanishes after a slight scrub!

    1. carrie says:


  35. Diana says:

  38. Robert says:

    I use it on my wife potty mouth now it’s super clean.

  39. Monica says:

    Does it actually clean like a cleaning product or do you have to clean the area with like a homemade vinegar water spray?

  40. Roxie says:

    I moved into an apt. which was clean but, of course, some things we do like to clean again. I have 2 toilets so I started downstairs, cleaned it again and yes, I like to recycle but the toilet seat went.
    Headed upstairs and again scrubbed, tossed the seat. I lifted the top of the tank and the water looked like pond scum – I’ve never seen anything like it. I shut the water off and tried to flush it out with no luck. Did this several times over a few days – nothing. I kept filling the toilet but still scum.
    Finally took my magic eraser, cut a piece off, tied a string around it (Long so it wouldn’t fall in) and two days later, no scum!! It’s been fine ever since.

  41. Arleen M says:

    I use them to clean the console and arm rests in my car.
    Quick and easy.

  42. Christi says:

    I’ve used Magic Eraser for my pool liner and it worked well. My best use of Magic Eraser though was on sheet vinyl flooring. I have a rental property I’m going to sell and when the renters moved out the kitchen floor was awful. I tried to mop it and even hand scrub it but neither worked and then I remembered Magic Eraser! I had already gotten a $1400 estimate to replace the flooring, but after an hour and 4 Magic Erasers later the sheet vinyl flooring doesn’t need to be replaced!

    1. carrie says:

      Oh wow! That’s so awesome – They really are great! Woohoo!
