I Think it is Magic!

This morning I had a stack of dishes. They needed to get done. Alas, over the last few weeks, I kept forgetting to buy new sponges & scotch brite pads. The pad & sponge I had no longer seemed sanitary. The pans have been piling up this week. (Nothing unusual...)
I figured I should go out to the store to get the dish washing tools I needed.
I was standing in the store, trying to pick out the best possible sponge. I saw the Magic Eraser! I had been told about this in the past. I didn't think much of it then. I guess I just filed it somewhere in the back of my brain. Today, I had the urge to get it & try it.
And, I tried it. I couldn't stop trying it. It was so fun. I cleaned all my cabinet & drawer fronts in the kitchen. The stovetop. The microwave. The oven. The walls. The fridge. The kickboards. I was going to sew this afternoon. But, the magic eraser had other plans. I cleaned until the eraser was out of magic. I had to kept repeating to myself, "do not get out the other one... leave it in the drawer... do not clean anymore..."
I recommend this little sponge. It makes cleaning so darn fun. And, it even worked on the kitchen grease above the stove/oven range. And, when I say grease, I mean, a lot. I don't do such chores with any regularity...

A good reminder, I've got a box under the bathroom sink, but I always forget how great they are! I use them on the walls (ours are all white!) and it is pretty amazing! Matt's mom loves using it in the bathtub, gets all those marks!

i love, love, LOVE those things! We use them all the time. I've never thought to use them on my stove though! You give me new ideas. I love it.

They are definitely magic! They are also successful in cleaning small bits of dried Play-Doh off of textured concrete patios (which may come in handy someday).

I love these things too! They are my most recent favorite cleaning tool. A friend of mine recommended them to me and I'm glad she did! My house looks a lot cleaner because of it.
I buy the cheap Target brand and they work as well as the Mr. Clean brand.

Oh, how I love those Magic Erasers, though they are expensive. They are the reason we have gotten our last two deposited about on apartments!
