When faced with the task of removing stubborn grime and scuff marks, I always reach right for my box of magic erasers. They are truly one of my favorite cleaning tools! In fact, I love them so much that I’ve already written a full blog post on ways to use magic erasers (which you can check out at the link below!)
Despite already having written a post about magic erasers, that doesn’t mean I’m all out of things to say about them! So today we’ll be exploring even more things you can clean with magic erasers around the house. But before we get to those, I thought it would be helpful to share a few quick tips about using magic erasers in general. These tips will help you no matter what you end up cleaning with your magic erasers! :-)
My Top 3 Tips For Using Magic Erasers
- Cut them into smaller pieces. Magic erasers wear out with each use, so cutting them into pieces is a great way to make each eraser last as long as possible. I cut each magic eraser into at least four pieces, but occasionally as many as eight depending on what I’m cleaning!
- Always add water. You should always dampen a magic eraser before using it. They aren’t meant to be used dry!
- Wear gloves. Magic erasers act like superfine sandpaper to scrub away gunk and grime. But it can also take a toll on your hands if you’re not careful! So it’s always a good idea to wear cleaning gloves when cleaning with magic erasers.
