While I normally write about adoption-related topics, I have decided to go off-topic today to offer my kudos to Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser. I first learned of this product when I was trying to figure out how to clean crayon marks off of a wall. It’s amazing, I tell you!
Not only has it “erased” crayon marks and black scratches from the wall, it also proved itself worthy against ink-pen writing on our computer monitor screen (left behind by a young child learning her alphabet). The first time I used it I did get a little over-zealous and started cleaning all of the surfaces that had a little bit of dirt – I should have read the instructions first, which tell you not to use the eraser on glossy surfaces. Oh well, the back of our front door has lost a little bit of its gloss…but that handprint that always seemed to appear there has not come back either.
