My Top 10 Magic Eraser Uses!
I had the scare of my life early one morning when my 6 year old self walked by my parents bedroom.
I glanced inside and ran screaming down the stairs.
Mom, there’s a huge rat in your bed!
My mom raced upstairs only to come down laughing.
It wasn’t a rat … it was my dad’s toupee flipped upside down on the pillow looking like a rabid creature.
There’s another bald man besides my dad who has won my heart. His name is Mr. Clean.
Have you ever used the Magic Eraser? I’ve always loved using it for erasing all those scuffs on my walls and baseboards but there are so many other ways to use it.
Spring means spring cleaning and I’m letting you in on some of the ways I clean up with my dirty little secret – the Magic Eraser! Bonus points: no harsh chemicals.
My Top 10 Magic Eraser Uses
1) Patio Furniture – gets inside grooves
2) Oven – clean racks and glass doors

Jillian Harris (host of HGTV’s Love It Or List It Too) loves herself a bald man too and made a fun little video highlighting all the ways she likes to use the Magic Eraser.

Rat or toupee? Ha,ha. Recently my daughter was in the basement working out and came upstairs freaking out (not as much as I would have been) She thought our cat was down there and realized it was not our cat. She grabbed a broom and hit it and it went up this space into the chimney. It was a raccoon. Animal Control saw evidence but couldn’t find it. My husband capped off the old incinerator. I am still worried that it is hiding somewhere. A couple days before someone took out my mailbox that was cemented in the ground on a 4X6. I have been having too much excitement over here. Pat S
That’s the stuff of nightmares Pat – something moving in the basement! Maybe the raccoon took revenge on your mailbox!
The police came out about the mailbox and said he could only take a report but I noticed a tire track and it continued down my tree lawn. I pointed this out and the black tire marks in the street. The officer agreed to see where they went. He came back a few minutes later with a neighbor. The neighbor claimed he knocked on my door (ha!). I was sitting right there and 2 of my kids were home. He also claimed the sun was in his eyes and a dog ran out in front of him. My mailbox is on the opposite side of the street he should be driving on. He did end up replacing everything to my satisfaction with the police officer checking back to see it was done. Which part of his story do you believe? I am just so glad no one was getting our mail when this happened.
Sounds like you’re a super sleuth Pat! You must have watched a lot of Murder She Wrote episodes!
Your poor parents, ha! ha! I do use mine in my kitchen but never in my bathrooms. Thanks Kelly.
Poor parents? Poor me!!
The rat story is funny! 🙂 On a serious note, I LOVE Magic Erasers!!!! I’ve used them since they first came out. My feeling about them is if it doesn’t come off with one, its meant to be there!! 🙂
I’m still scarred by that “rat” Becky!
That rat story is hilarious! I’m sure your parents often shared it with their friends. Love me some magic erasers! I buy the large multi pack. My favorite use of them is the shower door and tile. Cleaning soap scum is a booger but magic erasers make the job so much easier.
Sometimes I feel I need a rat to gnaw away at the soap scum in my girls shower!
