Clean Like Magic with Magic Erasers

Magic Erasers, also known as melamine foam cleaning pads, are versatile cleaning tools that can be used in various ways around the home. Here are some useful applications for Magic Erasers that can help you keep your Energy Smart New Home spic and span!

Removing Scuff Marks and Stains from Walls

Probably one of the most common reasons that these foam bars are a household mainstay is because they are superior at removing stubborn scuff marks. Magic Erasers are excellent at removing scuff marks, crayon marks, and other stubborn stains from walls without damaging the paint. Gently rub the affected area with a damp Magic Eraser, and the marks should come off easily.

Cleaning Baseboards and Trim

Baseboards and trim can accumulate dirt, dust, and scuff marks over time, making them a prime candidate for melamine bars. Use a Magic Eraser to wipe away grime and restore them to their original clean state.

Reviving Kitchen Appliances

Magic Erasers can effectively remove stains, grease, and built-up residue from kitchen appliances such as stovetops, ovens, microwaves, and refrigerators. Be sure to test the eraser on a small, inconspicuous area before using it on sensitive surfaces, but for the most part this cleaning tool can help your appliances shine.

Removing Soap Scum in the Bathroom

Soap scum can be challenging to remove and a real eyesore, but Magic Erasers work wonders on bathroom surfaces like shower doors, tiles, and faucets. Wet the eraser and scrub gently to remove soap scum and other residue.

Cleaning Grout and Tile

The abrasive nature of Magic Erasers makes them great for tackling grout stains and dirty tiles. Wet the eraser and scrub the grout lines to lift dirt and grime, restoring the appearance of your tiled surfaces.

Cleaning Dirty Light Switches and Doorknobs

Light switches and doorknobs are another area of the home that tend to accumulate dirt, fingerprints, and grime. Use a damp Magic Eraser to wipe them clean, restoring their appearance.

Remember to use caution when using Magic Erasers on delicate or glossy surfaces, as the abrasive nature of the eraser can potentially cause dulling or scratching. Always test in a small, inconspicuous area before using it on a larger surface. But overall, this cleaning tool is small but mighty! Keep some around your home to help make cleaning stubborn marks a breeze.
