Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is awesome!! Have you tried it? I am amazed at all the things I find it is able to clean. As a mommy of a 2.5 yr old I need it often. It will get crayons, markers, pens, pencils off of everything. A friend's little one get ahold of some ashes one day and got soot all over her house.... it got it all out. Don't even think twice about the price... I promise you will believe it it worth it.

I totally agree! It can get out some stains that my all-purpose cleaner is unable to get out. I've used it for all kinds of marks my toddler leaves behind, cooking messes, stains on furniture, counter tops, walls, you name it. It's definitely worth every single cent!

I just used it for a stain on furniture that has been there a while. I thought I was going to have it professionally cleaned. I tried it on a whim and the stain is gone!

I agree with you. I have been hearing all my friends say how wonderful it was, so I bought a package. It was awesome. I went around the house and it took every little mark off the walls~ and I run a daycare so there were tons of questionable marks.

makingpots I trust your judgement honey and this product sounds wonderful! \i wonder though if it is available here in the uk? I know my daughter is 5 now but belive me I think I still need some of that stuff, like last year when she couldn't wait on a new height chart and decided to draw a new one on our living room wall, with a mark every cm or so as high as she could reach - all in indelible black marker! I have to run see if I can find some of this stuff online! xxxx

I used to have white linoleum in my kitchen and I wish I knew about this back then. The tile I finally had put down does not get those black marks, thank goodness.

I have heard of it, but never tried it. I got stuck on LA's Totally Awesome All purpose cleaner! This stuff is wonderful for everything from crayons, ink, magic markers, gum, grease, stains, etc....the list is endless. You can buy it at Dollar General for $1.00 per bottle.

You are living in the US and I wonder if Mr. Clean magic eraser is available in my country. I am currently using this kitchen cleaner to wipe off any dirt and grimes. I feel that using the magic eraser will save me more money. The kitchen cleaner is a little expensive but effective as well. I will try to browse through the supermarket here and check out this product. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I got a generic version and I liked it. It dispeared as it went. I think it was a great cleaner but for the cost it didnt cover a lot of ground. Do you think it was because it was a generic magic eraser? Should I splurge one more time and see wht I think of the real thing?

I have never tried the generic. But I can almost assure you that you will like the real thing and think it is worth the money.

I'm sold on this product also- All I had to do was read the name- Mr. Clean! I have been using Mr. Clean for years- It's my favorite household cleaner- that and Clorox Bleach! I got a free sample of this magic eraser- I was sceptical at first- I loved it! It even takes scuff marks off walls and floors- It's great!

My mom loved Mr. Clean's Magic Erasor so much that she bought one for my sister a couple hours away. I don't feel I need one now, but I've heard so many good things about it that I know I will eventually buy one. For now, I'll stick with my Tide Pen. It's not the same thing of course. By the way, it says you can't use it on jeans, but I did and it worked without fading.

Yes it is very awesome. I just used it the other day on my very WHITE walls. I have two boys 8 & 10, so you can imagine what the walls look like..LOL My son was using it and was really excited. I actually got him to clean his own mess off the walls with the eraser !! I would recommend it to anyone as well.

yes, you get it slightly wet and just rub on whatever needs cleaned. If it is a hard spot, then you may need to rub a little harder, but it works so well my boys 8 & 10 can do it and do it well. They do run out quickly though. But very worth the money.

The first time I used it, I cleaned the shower, then the bathroom sink and counter and then dirt marks on the wall. I think that's the first time I ever had fun cleaning! LOL You are right, it does work great. It's a handy thing to keep on hand. As far as the price - it's fairly reasonable. I think it's $2+ for 2 of them. If you didn't already know this, you can use it again if not completely used up. Just put it away and use again later.

Yes this thing is amazing. I remember when i first got one I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned with it. I cleaned the bathtub, the sink, all of the doorways, cabinets and the fridge. When I was done with it, it was falling apart I had used it so much. I could never live without this product. If you have small children it's a must. It works wonders on crayon and marker spots.

YES!!! I use it too. It IS the most amazing thing ever. My mom told me about it when we bought our house. It's a 50 year old home so you know there were places that needed lots of attention. OH MY GOSH . . . it cleaned EVERYTHING! My counter was dingy looking and not even comet abrasive stuff cleaned it. But, I got out my Magic Eraser and it truly was magic. cleaned it right up. Also, I used it on the grout in the bathroom, white tile, white grout, 50 years old. . . and it looks BRAND NEW! Amazing stuff.

I love the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser! My son marked on my counter with a red Sharpe permanent marker. I tried all sorts of things to get rid of it. Then this product hit the market and I was skeptical so I didn't try it until some friends had good results with it. These marks had been there for a year. My son had a birthday party coming up which meant I had to get the house spotless, so I went ahead and bought the Magic Eraser. Believe it or not, the marks are gone! I was shocked and excited at the same time! It works wonders on getting mirrors really clean too! This product is 2 thumbs up!

I don't think that is a product that is sold here. I'll have to have a look next time I am in the shop. Every time I think my kids are too old to draw on the walls I find another little piece of artwork.
