I know, I know. Cleaning is usually way down on our list of things to get excited about, and new cleaning products are even further down. But have you discovered these "magic" eraser pads? They're all they claim to be and more.
The Magic Eraser is brilliant for those little kitchen-cleaning details that always seem so annoying: shining up faucets and fixtures, cleaning tile grout, wiping scuffs off the baseboards, and cleaning fingerprints from the fridge. My personal favorite is using it to clean up the sticky layer of grease that always seems to collect toward the back of the stove-top.
The pad looks and feels like a regular scrubby sponge, but it requires no sprays or other cleaners. You just get it wet and start wiping away. One eraser will last for several scrubbing sessions before starting to get dingy and lose its effectiveness. I keep an eraser next to my sink and give the kitchen a quick once-over after doing the dishes each night.
According to the Mr. Clean website, these pads contain no harsh chemicals and are safe for using around children and pets. They're made with a melamine polymer to form an abrasive cleaning foam.
Look for Magic Erasers at stores like Target, Walmart, and your local grocery store. You can also order bulk packages online:
